catalyst.

Last week I attended

Mind you, as it was approaching, I tried to bail.
There were some childcare issues that needed sorting out.
A.D.D. to battle.
A pressing to do list.
Fear.
Laziness.

But God had other plans for me.
He got me there.
He met me there.
Unexpectedly and mightily.

He has big plans for our future.
Big dreams.

Everything is different.

Honestly, I am terrified.

But it is a really good kind of terror.

More to be revealed as it is revealed to us.

  5. hmmmmmmm...? i'm intrigued. i was terrified when he brought me betsy, and, well, i'm not sure how he packed so much in such a little person, but he ain't the boss for nothin'. it's like willy wonka once said (or oscar wilde), 'the suspense is terrible. i hope it'll last.'

  8. Isn't it always nice when the Lord gets us someplace that can bring us new perspective. Especially when it seems all is against it (including ourselves with our busy lives). Glad you got to go. Glad you felt some guidance.

  13. I love when God knocks us down in his abundant majesty, in his beyond our comprehension blessings, in his amazing plans that defy what we believe we are capable of! Excited for you and all God's plans!

  14. Jealous...

    I've been trying to get to Catalyst (east coast) for YEARS. Had a ticket for 2009 and got VERY sick two days before I was set to drive to Atlanta. As much as I was disappointed, I was convinced there was a reason God didn't want me going. And, in turn, I was able to pass along the ticket to a pastor from my former church who couldn't get a ticket due to them being sold out. If my sickness was in order to give him the opportunity to go, then I'm glad I could help.

    But here's hoping I make it there one of these days... :)

  18. God does not lead us to do things that we are not prepared for... that is something I, myself, have to remind myself of.

    Whatever plans He has for you --- He's got your back - and has prepared you :)

  19. God is calling me to go out of my nice, safe, really wonderful in my book, comfort zone and do something for Him. I'm going to follow as well. Praying for your peace in the process!

  25. Awesome. My husband was there too. What or who was your favorite thing there? I went to the http://www.comedytheroadlesstraveled.com/ as was completely moved by what he is doing. Shiloh (my hubby) liked Stanley's last message and Driscoll's message a lot.
