I'm going to a women's retreat today! Actually, I am speaking at a women's retreat today, or more accurately tonight. I am hitting the road this morning to North Carolina to speak at a women's retreat tonight and tomorrow. I'm excited and nervous.
The funny thing is, while I'm yelling "Retreat!" as in Women's Retreat on the outside, my insides are yelling RETREAT...as in the military term meaning draw back, move back, pull away, pull back, recede. In other words RUN FOR MY LIFE!
I know I have an important message to share, but in front of 200 women? And what if they don't like me! It's those old insecurities raising their heads again. Yet, I know this is what I have a heart for: Speaking and writing for women. This is my destiny.
So I move ahead, not retreat, toward the goal. I ask for your prayers as I speak tonight and tomorrow. May God be glorified!
Philippians 3:14 -- I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
