boys and bibles.....
I am pretty sure what I experienced at Passion 2018 was just a portion of what it will be like in heaven. I missed my boys and Payton but I honestly was super sad when I got home because it was back to reality. The weight that was off my shoulders was piled right back on but it seemed to be much heavier. I started to feel what Christine Caine was telling us....all the lies! "You're not a good a mother." "You can't do this." "Everything you do is wrong" all the lies the enemy wants me to hear.
"If you don't know what Jesus says about you, you will believe what the world says about you."
- Christine Caine
Don't let the enemy win! All the lies in your head are just what he wants you to believe so you will go into hiding. I was on a Jesus high and I had a feeling this would happen and it's not easy but I told myself that I want to have the confidence in myself to know all of those things are lies.
I want to share some of my favorite quotes and notes from the amazing speakers with you all....
Satisfaction in God is satisfaction in a PERSON.
not a thing.
not an idea.
Speaking Truth can make God angry.
- True things spoken with half truths
- True things coming from a proud, un-loving heart.
(just some examples)
He also said something that really hit me about "doing." I feel like I am never doing enough in the church, or even in everyday life. We can DO DO DO all we want but if we don't have delight in the Lord then it's all for nothing! Have delight in the Lord first!
1. Love God (Delight in Him, it's not what you do)
2. Love People
3. Do everything in the Glory of God.
4. God is glorified in you when you're most satisfied in him!
and we are not talking about being most satisfied in the gifts of God but God himself!
Let Him be your silver and gold!!
"The unfinished work of the Church is to make sure that every person on earth hears about the finished work of the Cross."

"Come as you are.... but don't stay the way you are."
- Priscilla Shirer
Man, I love me some Priscilla Shirer!!! I can't even go into great detail about her message because it wouldn't even be close to what I experienced. She is a warrior for Christ and a good example for every woman. She reminded me that in a world of social media we are all living for a applause from other people when we should be living for the applause of heaven!
I wish I could go into more detail but I won't be able to give it justice so I just wanted to share some of the highlights. I wish I could be in that atmosphere every single day but one day I will be. People say Christianity is boring.... I laugh because of what I just experienced.... but it also makes me sad that they will never experience the full joy and peace that Christ can give.
