, but God . . . .

Just a few days ago before Influence, I sat with a friend and she asked if I thought the blog would change any after the conference. I joked that it would probably be better, but not different. I was fully expecting to come out of this weekend with new friends, rejuvenated, motivated, and ready to work my blog. Everything would be the same except better. But God . . .


but God gave me the best husband who saw the need for me to go connect with other women. he surprised me with an early Christmas present – a ticket

but God gave me Faith

but God had 15 girls from the peony project accept my dinner invitation. that means a lot for introverts like me.

but God put me there on Friday evening when lara casey had me give words to and admit my fears

but God was there the next morning more than I’ve ever felt him before, and I heard him through the words of Jess Connolly

but God helped me finally realize that I am worthy

but God helped me finally realize that he does love me, a sinner – he loves no matter what

but God introduced me to Hayley so I can see an Indiana girl doin’ big things..

but God – you did so many other things for me this weekend. You know my heart so you all of the things.

So yes, I do have new, amazing friends. I am rejuvenated, motivated, and ready to work on my blog. And no the content won’t change , but God will be much more present in my relationships, my life, my blog . . .

    I love this because I’ve read commentary on Ephesians that say But God are the two most important words in the Bible. I already bought my ticket for next year!

    BUT GOD. Absolutely. There’s so much truth in this. It was so great to meet you — I wish we could have talked longer! (And we never got our picture! Boo!)
