Ladies, our Hearts Ablaze Women’s Conference only weeks away! Our annual conference hosted by Women Rock is an opportunity to be encouraged and refreshed as we come face to face with Jesus, and form lifelong friendships with other godly women.
For some of us, this can be intimidating. If you are an introvert like me, you regret making those lunch plans with a friend and might even consider canceling about fifty times. When it comes to social interaction, just the thought of it makes you want to throw on sweatpants and catch up on your new Netflix series, or start that Pinterest project you pinned months ago. This is an issue that I have dealt with, and before you decide to pass up this life-changing conference, I want to share with you a story about another introvert:
I look back to my life in 1995 and there has been such a drastic change from 22 years ago. It’s a great feeling to help people and to know you’re pleasing God because, in the end, it’s all God’s work.
Okay, ladies let’s get real…
The statistics around us are crazy! Turning on the news is a battle in itself. The world is overwhelmingly dark and humanity is being lied to and these people hurting around us don’t have an idea of what true Love actually is.
We have a people selling themselves short to Gods best. But ladies we have the answer- we are the body of Christ, the wells of salvation that can and will trickle into the hearts of people around us. In the neighborhoods, schools, communities, and nations!
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, and all the more as you see to Day approaching. — Heb 10:25
The Bible exhorts us to gather together, and truth is, sometimes we feel like it and sometimes we don’t. With Women Rock Conference just a few weeks away and registrations in full-swing, I thought we’d take a look at reasons we gather. Why does God tell us to gather and to keep gathering? Why should we take time and resources, make a plan, carve out a day, and block out our calendars to come together? There are simply many, many reasons, from the very personal to the very social. One thing is true: there is the real power in gathering together. God’s manifested presence is found when His people gather. Here are six simple yet life-giving reasons we gather. I hope they encourage you to make the time, put forth the effort, and chose to be part of what God is doing!
