Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

'The LORD will guide you always;  he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.  You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.'  Isaiah 58:11


Tomorrow is finally here.  Yes, I know that technically tomorrow is always here, but in this case it's a very special tomorrow.  I will be traveling with a friend to Concord, NC for the Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference.  Although, for me, it should be She Writes...as that's what I'm going for!  I feel like a 5 year old getting ready to start school...excited, yet nervous and unsure of what to expect.

I am having to live out my Moving from Fear to Freedom principles as I'm leaving 2 of my 3 kiddo's at the lake with my hubby (that would be the concern over the well-being of my family).  Don't get me wrong, he's an awesome Dad, but that's just it-he's Dad, not Mama.  He'll actually have the baby Friday until my parents get there and then they'll take him home with them.  I cringe at the thought, but I am leaving them in Daddy's (earthly and heavenly) capable hands.

Then there's the issue that I have yet to get together any writing to take for the Writing Critique.  I should be doing that instead of blogging, oh well...
Add to that the fact I haven't really packed yet...and still have to pack for the rest of the family to go to the lake.  Did I mention I'll be going to the lake this evening and leaving from there in the morning? 
My house needs cleaned...especially the bathrooms and the dog hair where I'm sitting is enough to make extensions for me to wear this weekend.

But I am not going to let Satan get the best of me.  He is prowling around trying to get a hold of me and defeat me.  He is trying to make me nervous, anxious, and just flat out not want to go to She Speaks.  Did I mention that I really don't like to meet new people (no offense to anyone)?  I repeat, I will not let Satan win.  I will not let Satan win!  I WILL NOT LET SATAN WIN!  In Jesus name and power, I am ready for what He has in store for me this weekend!  See ya'll back Monday :)

Haha! I leave in about an hour and I just finished vacuuming up a layer of dog hair so I don't leave so much here before I leave! Can't wait to meet. :)

Allison, I'm so happy that you're getting to attend the conference. As you're full aware, your home, your children, your husband and your nerves are all in God's capable hands. Rest in His strength, and enjoy!

Have a Blessed Day!

Like Phil said, you know your family is in God's Hands. Go with an open heart expecting to see God move. And have fun!

I hope you have a wonderful time sweet friend! Heidi and I went together all the way from Reno last year! ROAD TRIP! Anyway, one thing I can say is guard your heart. Don't be tempted to compare. God has a special purpose and plan just for YOU! Have a wonderful time...the speakers were so awesome last year...so jealous!

It's going to be great!!! Just shove Satan aside and move on, you'll love every moment... even the writers critique group! Ditto to what Kelli said too... just enjoy it. The food was great too :) Can't wait to hear all about your experience!

MUITO BOM! Eu acredito que Deus criou o homem e deixou o manual de instrução, a “BÍBLIA SAGRADA!” A bíblia é a divina revelação da palavra de Deus e não produtos enlatados, eu costumo dizer que: “As pessoas precisam parar de comer tudo o que dão. E começar a questionar! ” Alguém escuta alguma coisa de alguém, e saem falando, sem questionar, sem saber se é verdade ou não. As pessoas precisam se perguntar! Será que a minha crença esta de acordo com a lei de Deus? Será que a religião que eu nasci sempre me falou a verdade? Quando uma pessoa morre pra onde ela vai? Ela volta? A bíblia apóia o homossexualismo? Quem não herdara o reino de Deus? O que devo saber sobre idolatria, imagens e escultura? O que devo saber sobre o único batismo? Será que tem uma seqüência para salvação? A quem eu devo me confessar, quem pode me perdoar? Religião salva alguém? Essas e outras perguntas e respostas em:

Você pode dizer, eu já sou salvo amém! Vamos atrás de quem não esta, “Se você quer se dar bem com o mundo seja hipócrita, mas se você quer se dar bem com Deu seja verdadeiro!” divulgue este site, porque: “Eis que vêm dias, diz o Senhor Jeová, em que enviarei fome sobre a terra, não fome de pão, nem sede de água, mas de ouvir as palavras do Senhor. E irão vagabundos de um mar até outro mar, e do norte até ao oriente; correrão por toda parte, buscando a palavra do Senhor, e não a acharão." ( Amós cap 8 ver 11 e 12 )Fale para outras pessoas, por que “O Senhor não retarda a sua promessa, ainda que alguns têm por tardia: mas é longânimo para convosco, não querendo que alguns se percam, senão que todos venham a arrepender-se.” (II Pedro cap. 3 ver 8) e “Que quer que todos os homens se salvem, e venham ao conhecimento da verdade. Porque há um só Deus, e um só Mediador entre Deus e os homens, Jesus Cristo o homem. (I A Timóteo cap 2 ver 5 e 6)
Seja sua bíblia, católica ou evangélica, aqui você vai tirar suas duvidas.

E conhecereis a verdade, e a verdade vos libertara (João cap 8 ver 32) Se você tiver coragem de perguntar, a bíblia terá coragem de responder!
