“God’s love has a width, length, height, and depth, but we will never reach the end of it. Our capacity to experience God’s love will be exhausted and full long before God’s capacity to give it is strained. The picture of having Christ “dwell” inside us by faith presents us with compelling and comforting possibilities. What Christ does in us and through us will always be “exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think.”
- Max Lucado
I experienced an Ephesians 3:20 weekend these last few days as I spent time with Sally Clarkson, Courtney, Whitney and my own sweet Good Morning Girls group at the Mom Heart conference in Dallas. Just last year, I had attended my first Mom Heart conference with Courtney……now a year later, Courtney and I are both speaking at it! My, how your life can change in just one year! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would speak to a room full of women…..around 800 to be exact…..about the importance of being in God’s Word! Totally out of my comfort zone……TOTALLY! But God is so good! He was with me every step of the way!
I just LOVE it when God’s Word becomes ALIVE!!! I was praying Ephesians 3:16 “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may STRENGTHEN you with POWER through his SPIRIT in your inner being,” as I was preparing to speak…..that God would strengthen me and give me the power I was needing through the Holy Spirit to do his will in my life. Want to know something? He’ll do the same for you! What are you facing today that you feel you can’t do in your own strength? I’m learning that’s right where God wants us sometimes…….totally out of our comfort zone and totally dependent on HIM! It’s in that uncomfortable spot…..that uncomfortable place in life where we learn to trust Him, to lean on Him and to gather our strength to do what He has called and equipped us to do. Take courage my sweet sisters……if called has called you, he will also equip you! And he won’t just equip you, he’ll “do immeasurably MORE than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
Right before Whitney had to fly home, we made this video for you…….so sorry for the poor quality! The battery on my video camera had died by this point so I had to use my iphone..
Thanks to all our other sweet Good Morning Girls who stopped us and said “Hello!”
