This is my front view and the amazing worship team that has ushered in God’s presence. I took this pic this morning because I didn’t take any last night! I totally forgot too.
Thank you so much for praying for me and this retreat. Last night was amazing. What an absolute delight it is to get to be a part of this.
I feel like the preparation of these messages has been a lot like giving birth: it grew inside me for a long time, God did the work, created it and I got to “house” it. Then when it was time, labor kicked in and I had to push through some pain right up until it was time for the delivery.
When I got up to speak, the podium/table I was planning on using was being used for something else. So, I decided to take my Bible up and just preach it. I left my notes, timer (on the phone) and most if all I left my trust in myself and went for it.
I have never preached without notes but I felt God’s power all around me and in me. I didn’t have to look at notes, I have lived them. They are in me. God had burned them into my heart and then poured them out of me.
The altars were full of ladies who responded and wanted God to “take off the veil” that was keeping them hidden and keeping them in bondage.
The place of authenticity is the place of honesty and vulnerability. It was amazing and God showed up here in a powerful way.
Please continue to pray. I feel the covering of your prayers and you are a part of what God is doing here because of it.
Tonight I am going to be ministering “Unveiled Intimacy”. It will be interesting to see what God will do!
