Sunday toward the end of the conference I invited the women to spend some "couch time" with God - processing the things we'd been discussing, listening to what HE had to say to their hearts. And when we had done that, one woman shared with the group what she'd heard Him say to her heart. She gave me permission to share it with you here. Be encouraged!
I KnowI know you are broken, but I can heal your brokenness! I know you are hurting, but I can take your pain away! I know you are afraid of what will happen, but don’t try to predict the future… it hasn’t happened yet! I know you feel you are amidst a battle, but the battle is not yours! I know you think you need to have control of things, but I’ve got this! I know you want to be at peace, but I am the peace you seek! I know you want to be with me, but I have never left your side! I know you feel lost in the darkness, but I am the light to find your way! I know you feel hopeless, but I am the hope for the world… I am your hope! I know you are tired and weary, but I will give you strength and perseverance! I know you feel unworthy, but you are worthy of all my love, and I love you! I know you are seeking, but I am what you seek! I know you are disappointed in yourself, but I have forgiven you and given you a new life! I know you are concerned and worried, but you will be okay… I’ve got this! Connie Shaler, September 30, 2012
