I'm totally kidding...I think.
I probably won't post 751 more times about the Living Proof Live conference in Louisville this weekend, but if you see me sneaking in some "thoughts" on a parable regarding a seed and a sower, its probably related! :)
Let's just say that this weekend was amazing in 401 ways. I met 2 fellow bloggers in REAL LIFE, Brittney (why can't I find your blog and link you like a good friend would?) and Connie, and we worshipped, laughed, hugged, and loved every bit of our time together. It made me sad to leave. I want to be their real life friend all the time.
I did have some other friends from home with me so it was one giant party.
Here we are all together before the event on Saturday. We were on the FRONT ROW, if you haven't heard me scream that from TN, and it was just the coolest.
Meet my darling friends...(I'm in the black top on front)
Here is a picture of my bed that I slept in on Friday night....its a lovely rollaway bed and it had some "wooly" thingy that seemed like a "pee pad" for a child.
Ok...let me share my big word from Friday night....
Go get your Bible and look up Luke 8:8-16 (She had the Message version on the screen and read out of the NIV I think once she began teaching)
This is the parable of the seed and the sower.
The very beginning of Ch. 8 talks about the women there who were graced by God. They had a passion for a ministry they loved. These are women of means. Say that out loud...."A WOMAN OF MEANS!" They were women of substance!!!
This parable is about the people who were exposed to the Word.
We need to increase our confidence and competence in the word of God.
Let's have maximum impact in our daily lives because we know the word of God.
We don't want to just hear the word do we?? We want to truly know the word, retain the word, and have a 100-fold blessing in our life. Pretty impressive promise from God huh?!
More to come...chew on that...read that scripture again and again and we'll put the pieces together on how we can have MAXIMUM IMPACT because we know His word.
Hugs and blessings....
Why did I show you the picture of my bed at the hotel??
