The Diving Board

God’s timing is always perfect! While I may have originally thought I would attend the 2012 She Speaks Conference, I wasn’t ready…I just love how God works!

Look at this note from late 2011:
When you were a little (or big!) girl and went swimming, were you the type to run full force off the diving board? Or were you perhaps the trepidacious type like me…taking a few steps forward only to retreat again?

That’s EXACTLY what I’ve been doing the past few months with God! I’ve known since last summer I was on a launch pad – He gave me The Love Dare with God to share with others and yet I’m still keeping it to myself.

The thing is…I can still recall the exhiliaration as a little girl when I finally “jumped” off the diving board into the water…

2012 is going to be a HUGE year and I’m excited to see what diving into Living Water feels like!

Today I was led to the 2012 She Speaks conference – the timing is perfect (of course), but the conference is full. Now the enemy would be pleased as punch for me to say, “oh well…maybe next time” – sorry – no can do! I’ve sent a request to be added to the waiting list. If I’m supposed to be there, I’m confident an opening will be provided
As it turned out, registration wasn’t even open for 2012! I was right about one thing…2012 WAS huge…of course nothing like I expected – is it ever???

It was a huge…it was tough…one fire after another, but I learned how to lean more than ever before. 2013 has definitely had its share of trials too, but I’m learning to be a Daniel – CONFIDENT in my loving God to deliver me from each and every fiery trial!

My Love Dare with God? I’ve been living it daily and excited to share it with others – the book doesn’t quite have he same face as it did 18 months ago, but love is still the root…

Preparing a formal book proposal is sort of like writing employee performance appraisals – it forces you to get organized! Is it perfect? Hardly. But as one of the She Speaks leaders shared, “sometimes the process is the point” – and yes, that’s a challenge for this Martha…one I’m learning to embrace!

I’m thrilled for the opportunity to participate in the 2013 She Speaks Conference hosted by Proverbs 31 Ministries this week! It will be a time of unique fellowship as many of us dive off that board!
