Beth Moore....

well, My mom bought me a ticket for the Beth Moore conference this weekend...
So, we go Friday night. The praise music was spectacular. It was wonderful to worship with at least 14,000 other women! Then, Beth Moore shared a Christ filled message! She was talking about Paul in Philippians where he talks about striving for what is ahead... tobe like Christ. She talked about taking hold of whatever God took hold of us for. She spoke of the simple truth that our future is ahead of us... we don't need to look back at past success or failures (both can hinder) but look ahead and chase Christ. She pointed out that many of us are weary in running the race of the Christian life because we've stopped chasing after Christ. Awesome truths.

THEN.

Saturday morning I woke up with a migraine, nausea.... My mom picked me up, we got all the way downtown and I then knew I wasn't going to make it. Mom started driving me home and I did get sick on the way. ugh. I recovered by afternoon but obviously did miss the rest of the conference. I am thankful I got to hear the truths I did...

God, help us persue after you. Help me not to look behind me when you have new things ahead. Give me the desire to persue after You with all my heart.

Charity, I am SO sorry you got sick but thankful you got the truths you did on Friday! I was in a 3-day conference in Dallas this weekend! And it too was AMAZING!!! One of the things the head of BSF said was to "soak yourself in Scripture." I loved that use of the word "soak." We do need to soak in Scripture daily kind of like chasing Jesus daily. Love it! I pray you feel better and that you will have the opportunity soon to see Beth Moore again!
