As I anticipate our Priscilla Shirer simulcast on Saturday, I wanted to share a few things with you.
First, thank you! Thank you for registering for this event and making the day a priority for yourself and your spiritual life. I have three kids ages four and under, a full time job teaching special education, and I am a pastor’s wife. I understand busy. I get just how full our schedules can become. I am thankful that God orchestrated our calendars and plans to make time available for us to gather this Saturday. I also know how stressful it can be to make plans to be able to get yourself somewhere, especially on a weekend. However, I believe God made it work in a way that you can come and, even better, come stress free.
That’s what we at Liberty Hill would like this Saturday to be for you – stress free. Please take the next few days to ask God to bring you into this conference seeking a renewed strength. God has things under control– the flowers can be watered later, your husband will take great care of your kids (Lunchables are a perfectly fine meal), your son is going to be just fine dressing himself for prom, the housework can wait until next year, and work can wait until Monday. I am praying that we come free from distraction and ready to be filled with His peace.
There have been many ladies at Liberty Hill praying for each and every woman that is registered for this conference. We have taken the time to ask God to prepare each of us for what He has in store. If you have specific prayer need in preparation for Saturday, please, let us know. We would be happy to pray for specifics. I have prayed each day for Priscilla Shirer as well, and that she will let God speak through her to lead us to any answers we might be searching for. While Priscilla will not physically be in our building, God will be and I believe that His spirit is going to be overflowing.
We’ve had many ladies ask us what they can bring or what they can do to help. There has been an amazing team of ladies, with servant hearts, working hard to make this day possible. There will be an amazing team of men on Saturday working hard to make the day go smoothly, help us park our cars, run the media side of things, and feed us lunch. I am so thankful for each of their hearts and willingness to serve. And, you know, if you’re coming to a Baptist church there will be plenty of food! So, back to the original questions of what you need to bring… The answer is simple. Please come overwhelmed or overjoyed, empty or full, exhausted or refreshed. However you come, please just bring with you anticipation that God is going to do great things.
I look forward to worshipping with you on Saturday!
