It all started with a little thought…….I wonder if some of my friends would want to come over and watch the Beth Moore Simulcast with me on Saturday? Intentional worship……I desire it, I wonder if others do.
Then, the thought came to me……my house would really only sit 6 comfortably on the couches, what if more would want to come? What 5 would I invite? How would I choose just 5?
So, my next thought was maybe there is A LOT of women that could use a weekend to stop, pause, relax, have quality intentional worship with our God. You know, like maybe 8 of us? Possibly 10?
I posted the following on my facebook……
Ok ladies, so I’ve never created a group on Facebook, really ever planned a girls weekend or any of this……And I want to share the intent of this. I think a weekend away would be good for all us!!! A time to fellowship, a time to pause and intentionally worship Jesus and just make memories ……with all that being said, depending on how many express interest, how many commits to go depends on cost and where we go. Saturday is the simulcast with Beth Moore it’s from 8 to 5 we will be able to watch this on our tv in the cabin!!! I think we can pull off the weekend for less than $50 each plus food and shopping I’m thinking we can make a run to store and eat in some as well…….would love to hear your alls ideas and I’m totally cool with everyone inviting people. I actually found a lodge/cabin in gatlinburg that sleeps 47!!!! NOW THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING!!! Also, would like everyone considering or committing to pray for our hearts and minds to be ready to meet with our Savior, pray for any women that want to go to have the means whether it be schedules open or just their hearts to open and go…..
And I prayed. ALL WEEKEND, when I started getting message after message…….
Yes, there are women that feel just like me……there are women who I haven’t seen in 15 years, there are women that are acquaintances that are saying YES I NEED THIS…….
I am absolutely blown away at what God is doing….
And scared, because I don’t feel adequate to be leading in this area a bunch of Jesus serving women…..
However, I said YES! And put it out there and God is growing it….as of now we have a possible 23 going and I NEVER DREAMED THAT WOULD HAPPEN…..
And you know what? When I started this I don’t have the time to plan something like this, but saying YES to God is what we are supposed to do, He laid it on my heart to just check and maybe others had the need…….
Please pray for the women who are going, the women who have the desire to go, and the women who are scared to go, that their hearts will be completely open and their minds receptive and ready to intentionally worship our Lord of All.
I am so #AMAZED that he would use me to maybe minister to other ladies, even when I don’t feel adequate, he has other plans……
