A week and a half has gone by since Allume and it is hard to believe that it’s over. There were so many weeks and months of planning and anticipation and then the weekend finally arrived.
I’ve read the various blog entries on the take-aways and lessons learned. I’ve read about the callings impressed and reinforced. I too wrote about what God did during those few days and the change has been constant over the week since the conference.
But one fear keeps niggling at the back of my mind and it’s prompted me to pray for all of us. We had an amazing weekend full of God’s leading. I don’t want us to forget what God did. I don’t want to look back and see that the lessons were just the result of an ’emotional high’ and that we’re right back where we were before Allume.
So, my prayer for you is Galatians 6:9
“And let us not grow weary of doing good,
for in due season we will reap,
if we do not give up.”
Promise me that you won’t give up. Promise me that you’ll write the book. That you’ll build your community. That you’ll love your family because that is your calling – a worthy calling.
I didn’t get to meet many as many of you as I would have liked, but you are ALL on my heart and I know that God has a plan for each of us.
Don’t grow weary, I’m praying for you.
