Do You Know His WORD? Connie does.

When I was in Florida I met so many beautiful women. The longer I walk with the Lord, the more clearly I can see His rich presence in a life.

Connie is one of those who is walking hand and hand with Jesus and it shows. Her testimony is miraculous. I won't share her whole story, but you must know her and the Lord have beaten cancer together. I am hoping she will begin her own blog soon so I can send you all her way to tell her story in her own words. (You need to begin writing Connie!) I've included a small tidbit below of the blessing I received from Connie while in Florida.

What an example of how our lives can grow and mature in Him if I will (just get off of my lazy bum and) get in His WORD daily, study His WORD daily, memorize His WORD daily.

God's Word is alive and active. But, we must have it in our heart so we can speak it when we need it. That's the only way it becomes active in our own lives. As we grow in Him, He is going to expect us to do a little bit more than what I like to call Bible Roulette. You know, when you ask God to speak, close your eyes and open your Bible to any passage, hoping your finger will land on a Word from Him.

And in the beginning, it does.

But, as you grow up and your faith is tested, you are expected to dig a little deeper, to seek Him with ALL your heart. I was convicted while at the conference to have His Word ready and on my tongue. Not only for me to know, but that my children know His WORD too.

Thank you Connie for being such an encourager. Thank you for having such a heart for Jesus, and thank you for taking us girls on such an amazing Florida field trip. I can't wait for you to step foot onto California soil so I can return the favor. Hugging you with my heart sweet friend.

Hey what's the time difference between us? I'm so not good with that. Was going to look your # up on the list Lynn sent yesterday and said, Oh I wonder what time it is. It was about 9pm here at the time.

Love you girl.

I thought Connie did have a blog. I met her several months back and I thought I was introduced via her blog. But maybe she shared her story through email. Must've been email.
