LINGERING STORM 2                       The image is of a threatening storm but with the Hope of it passing.

Tomorrow, I am leaving for a Conference in Sydney.   The KING OF GLORY CONFERENCE  for me seemed totally impossible two months ago.   From the perspective of finances, health, desire, motivation and enthusiasm it was out of the question.

I was grateful for recovery of almost return to full health  for both David and myself but all the other issues were swamping.   I prayed ‘Lord, do You want me to attend?’.

There was no obvious answer but peace and contentment flowed.

The next morning I found the image illustrated above and was amazed by the thought that I suddenly would like to go to this event.   By day’s end a strong feeling of Calling!  Impossible!

Two days later in the mail I received a beautiful card with a seeded monetary gift.   The card simply said ‘I hope to see you at Conference.’    This unknown  person’s  gift sparked a train of events.     Within the week I had airline (I had hundreds of saved QANTAS points)  tickets and accommodation arranged.   (5 minute walk – prayerfully believing this too will be possible four times a day for three days.  Tomorrow I leave for the airport.   David is and has been fully supportive in every way.)        I do not understand but have this unexpected certainty in my spirit.   I will go. If HE is with me.

Even if in that place, I am to do nothing more than stand or (sit as will probably be the case) for my Lord and Saviour there then,  I will do it.     This is an Aglow International Event  and all Christian Denominations who proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ will have representatives. Folks are coming from all the Islands of the South Pacific and from all Australian States and a few from overseas countries.

As long as I am in His Will and Purpose how can I not comprehend that the Impossible has become possible.

Thoughts and Blessings to all.

king of kings and lord of lords!

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
