Last Night ...

“Speak, Lord, and let the romance begin.” Oswald Chambers
And, thus the quote that began the night! I was privileged to sit with a groovy group of women seeking to know God more. Becky Tirabassi spoke at our church and she is dynamic and on fire and contagious and I could have listened to God speak through her all night. God used one of Becky’s books, “The Burning Heart Contract,” to start me on a real, authentic journey with Him in January of 2006. Becky is dead-on serious about calling everyone to a focused, daily relationship with Christ through prayer and digging into His word. She doesn’t mince words and I like that. Tonight, God spoke to me through Becky, again. He used her to remind me that I am precious to Him and that He is jealous of our time together. I have come to a place, thank you Jesus, where I miss Him when I compromise any of the time I commit to Him every day. Becky challenged me to be very specific in my prayers, especially for my children. I confess I have been lax in that. But, not anymore! I plan to be BOLD. The Bible says to ask anything … more than you can imagine … believing. I have experienced that truth and I want more. The Bible also says the more I seek Him; the more I find Him, know His character. The more I sit at His feet, the more peace there is in my life and the more I will, prayerfully, shine His light in my life to others. Thank you Lord for women who encourage me with their words and their lives that there is no other way but YOU!

Oh I am so glad it was a great evening. I just picked up her book Sacred Obession. Thank you very much for speaking truth about the Lord and our prayers to Him. I needed that reminder too!!! He just blows me away.
