Today I’ve been looking at my calendar and am startled by the fact that our first Going Beyond event of the year is just around the corner. In roughly two weeks, I and about 2,000 registrants will converge on Mckinney Bible Church in Ft. Worth for what I believe will be a wonderful time.
The following weekend, we’ll do it again in Mclean, VA. There’ll be enough estrogen, caffeine and chocolate to power a small village, I’m sure!
On the Friday night of the event, I always have fun going back to the hotel and seeing women, fresh off the heels of the event, getting ready to spend the night together after some gooey dessert and even more fabulous conversation.
I’ve been praying that God’s presence will hang heavy and that we’ll experience Him in a way we’ve not before. I love it when God surprises His people – and that’s exactly what I’m expecting Him to do.
As I prepare messages to feed the sheep of His pasture, I’m prayerful that every sentiment will be God-breathed and will stir hearts to pursue Him more fully. As I’ve studied, I’ve been convicted and challenged in my own life and hope that the Spirit will do what He does best – take one simple theme and make it apply to thousands.
So, are you coming to either of these events? Or have you been to one in the past? If you are coming, give us some details! Coming alone or with a group? Live in the DFW area or flying in from out of town? What are you anticipating that God will do in your life? If you’ve come in previous years, what was your favorite part of the conference and what did God do in your life?
Expecting great things,
