The conference was amazing and God provided in so many ways! Not only did He bless me with many contacts, some of which I regard more as friends than simply “business contacts”, but he also provided me the energy I needed to get everything I could out of the conference. I feel much more equipped to do the task that lays before me.
My weekend rest at my family home was a rich blessing to me as well. It is always edifying to spend time with them and speak of the Lord’s work in our lives. It is also a blessing to worship the Lord together! For this I give Him many thanks and praise His name.
Now that I’m back to school and catching up in classes, I’ve realized how depleted I still am from the conference. Though I do not feel like I’ve recovered from last week, I know the Lord continues to provide everything I need to accomplish what He would have me do. This week is proving to be difficult, but I know by His grace I will get through it and bring glory to His name.
I look forward to the weekend, hoping to find time to find true rest that only comes by abiding in Him! To those of you who also feel exhausted and depleted, know that God will give you strength to get through whatever you’re going through and know that peace and rest can be found when you abide in Him! Take the time to drink deeply of the Living Water!
