My cup is full. When I look at where my life has come, never EVER did I think I would be investing a weekend with a Christian woman icon. I grew up in the Catholic church and school and unfortunately it did not teach me the relationship I now have with Jesus. I am not knocking Catholicism at all, and am super grateful for having even a foundation of who God is growing up. But nothing could have prepared me for the journey in my faith that I have gone through in the last 15-20 years.
And trust me when I say that I am a work in progress and by no means perfection. I have struggled with shame, feelings of not being good enough and thinking I don't have a purpose. When I started at our church about 9 years ago I can truly say my life has changed. And that change is ONLY possible "by" and "through" Jesus. For some that makes you feel uncomfortable and I want to say...I understand! I was that girl that watched these women confident in their faith, living with defiant joy in hardship and I would call them crazy. But I can tell you, they have the "thing" we are all looking for. Nothing strips away the shame, guilt, fear, striving, than a relationship with the one who died for us.
Thank you @LifeWayWomen and @BethMoore for an incredible weekend!
