Desperately In Need Of The Miracle Zone
What? You’re kidding me right?
I had 36 hours to completely rewrite a talk that had taken me from January to May to prepare?
That’s what had just been laid on my shoulders.
But I had been living in the midst of what I call the miracle zone all year so why was I questioning this?
Because I Panicked!
Even though I knew the Lord had His hand over the women that participate in this conference, I couldn’t see how I could possibly pull this off.
But that should have been my first clue that God was right in the middle of all this.
If you trust God, really trust Him . . . when things look impossible . . . is exactly when things are about to get exciting.
But There Was No Time
The Director’s “I don’t think this is your talk” comment was declared Thursday afternoon around 4:45 P.M. (If you haven’t read post #9, please stop right here, go back, and ready that post so you understand what’s going on in this post. The link is above.)
The conference opening meet and greet started at 4:30 P.M. in the Chapel, so as soon as we finished with my practice talk, we had to dash over there. After the meet and greet we went to dinner, and then back to the meeting/training room for introductions and our first training session.
After the training session finished we had a worker strategy meeting that didn’t get over until midnight. I was exhausted so I trusted God and went to bed.
Friday Started At 5:00 AM with showers, church, and breakfast.
Then straight to the meeting/training room.
As I sat at the table, working with other women, I silently prayed.
I listened to the other speakers with fresh ears.
Read the Bible with fresh eyes.
And kept trusting God would show me what He wanted me to talk about.
But the hours kept ticking by.
While I had a lot of notes,
I didn’t have a talk.
bits and pieces.
But no talk
Inspiration Takes Shape
Tick-tock, tick-tock . . .
When we came back from lunch ideas suddenly started flowing like water.
But there was no time to write them down and create a talk out of the jumble of ideas in my head.
The day was jam packed till midnight.
After the closing meeting I decided to stay and see where the Lord led me.
Sure enough, my miracle showed up at midnight.
The Lord opened the Bible and reveal the scriptures He wanted me to reference, and I was able to easily put the talk together using humor, and yet, deep spiritual intensity.
My head hit the pillow around 3:30 A.M. but the talk was complete.
I was almost ready!
I only needed a couple props to help me pull it off.
Later that morning the ladies going to town for supplies added my few things to their list and by noon I was ready.
Step Into The Miracle Zone
At 2:30 I walked onto the stage with total peace and confidence.
My props were in place, my note cards numbered and waiting on the podium.
I was ready.
I carefully followed my first couple of note cards, and then . . .
I sat the cards down, walked out from behind the podium, down to the edge of the crowd,
stepped into the miracle zone, and gave the rest of my talk with no notes.
I couldn’t tell you exactly what I said, but I know it encouraged women to strip away the things that hold them back and become the Christian Leaders God made them to be.
The women must have been touched because there was thunderous applause as I left the building.
God received a standing ovation.
I merely allowed Him to speak through me.
I was definitely walking in the Miracle Zone.
Thank you God!
