Aldersgate Conference

As I’m sitting at the gate in Dallas/Ft. Worth airport, my thoughts go to all that has taken place over the last 5 days. I always feel a revival of my spirit at the Aldersgate Renewal Ministries Conferences. I am physically tired – but my spirit is full!

I am so thankful for being a part of the ministry that has taken place. It is a joy to serve the Lord and serve others. My heart is full!

I am so humbled to have been able to participate in Prayer Teams, Prophetic Prayer Team, Coordinate the Word Gifts Team, lead an adult Equipping Session on the power of our words, and lead a Youth Equipping Session on prophecy.

But also the unscheduled moments of praying with people that the Lord connected me with. Getting to know Brothers and Sisters from near and far and sharing our hearts for the Lord. Such a blessing!

And those overwhelming moments of WORSHIP! Oh my! I am so thankful to have a place to worship with all my heart and soul. The worship team was anointed and powerful. Thank you Jonathan C Dow for your leadership! It is always a joy to join you in worship of our amazing God!

Thank you Christen Ball for the Song of the Lord that flows through you with such power! My spirit leaps as I listen to the Holy Spirit sing to me through you.

The Keynote Speakers spoke into my life! I walk away with spiritual “food” that will challenge me and ignite me in the next phase of my journey.

And lastly, I want to thank and honor Mark Barrow, the Executive Director of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. God clothes you with gentleness, humility, love, power, and authority. I am so blessed to be in ministry with you and to name you as my Brother and Friend! Onward & Upward!!

I can’t begin to share all that has taken place…but I did want to share some of it with you, dear friends. Thank you to all of those that have held me up in prayer. You know who you are!!

Next year the Conference will be in Peoria, Illinois. I would encourage you to pray about joining me and experiencing what God has planned for YOU!!❤️

BLOOM!!

Good morning! I had this plant on my porch but wanted to enjoy it more…so I brought it inside.

As I’m typing this, I feel the Lord saying that He is getting ready to move some of you to a different place. It isn’t necessarily a “big” move…but a repositioning. He will be moving you to a place of greater influence and ministry for Him!

HIS Beauty will shine through you and that will not only give Him greater joy but also those around you!

As I placed the plant, I found myself turning it so I could get the greatest view of its blooms. The Lord causes a “turning and shifting” in our lives that will bring Him the greatest glory!

Brothers & Sisters! YOU are a beautiful planting within the Lord’s Garden! Let the Master Gardener do His work!!

May you BLOOM where you are planted by God Almighty!!

OPEN DOORS

We are not to walk through every “open door!”  It is important to discern which open door is for us…which door is from the Lord…and which door is a distraction that would lead us away from God’s best.

We have many choices in our lives. Some choices we know are not good even as we choose them. (Why do we do that!).  But, I thank God that He is able to teach us and use even our bad choices to help us grow.

Sometimes the choices before us are “good” ones and we see no problem with choosing them – especially if it will give us pleasure.  But, even the good choices can become a distraction and lead us away from where the Lord would have us invest our time and energy.

How do we know which choice to make…which door to walk through?  We know by seeking the Lord and by seeking the counsel of godly friends.  God is our Guide; our Wisdom; and the Light that shines upon His path for us and the door we should walk through.

So!  If you are ready for a change in your life and ready to walk through HIS open door – GET READY! He is opening doors right now that will lead us into new territories; new opportunities to influence those around us for His glory; and new ways of doing ministry!

GET READY!!
