It was an incredible week and it changed my life forever…
In January 2000, I attended a conference called Planetshakers in Adelaide and I said some things that were taken very seriously. I told God during the week that He could have my life and use me any way that He wanted. Little did I know that He would listen and He would take me (together with my family) on amazing adventures.
During the conference I truly connected with God in a real way like I had never done before. I experienced His incredible love and felt the overwhelming sense of the purpose that He wanted to give me. It was a great feeling and I poured out my heart like water before Him.
Since then I have been on an amazing journey in God. Lots of memorable experiences, life changing moments and great friendships. Some lows and hard times, and times I didn’t think I’d get through. But, through it all was the knowing that God was right there with me and with my family.
I wouldn’t have it any other way but I have learnt to be more intentional about the words to say and the things I tell God. I ask for outrageous things and I ask for the world. He listens, He cares, and He has a plan to bring me along the road that He has for me.
I now look back 13 years later and remember that week. I’m so glad I said those things to God. I’m so glad He listened. And I’m so glad He’s stuck by me, even when I didn’t want to keep going.
Be careful what you say, because God remembers. 😉
