Incredible Sunset Looks Like What I Think The Miracle Zone Would Look Like

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?

Why?

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.

Miracle Zone, miracles, God

Just Before Sunrise

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.

Only thoughts,

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.

Not me.

I merely allowed Him to speak through me.

I was definitely walking in the Miracle Zone.

Thank you God!

      Thank you Lowell! And you and Mercides have a big chunk of my heart!

      Hi Kristi, Just heard you on the YOM call…bless you! Thank you for sharing your story – I am incredibly happy you’re in the miracle zone! Yes…miracles are all around us, and it truly is amazing. We all have amazing miracles; when I share our miracles we’ve had, people can’t believe it. Miracle zones are absolutely divine!!!

      • Kristi Ross November 12, 2014 #

        Oh thank you HS! That was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! It didn’t even hit me until I realized Deb was crying so hard. Living in the midst of the miracle zone is incredible isn’t it?! My hope now is that I too can share that wonderful, glowing light with others. Thank you so much for coming and reading my post, and for your touching comment. Thank you! I hope you’ll come back and read more of the Miracle Series and then tell me what you think!
        Take care and God Bless,
        Kristi

    Well done….you left us hanging and then followed up with the answers.
    I have made those type talks where you don’t know how it happens but it flows like water, everyone is touched and unfortunately I can never remember what was said…we’re you lucky enough to have a someone tape it?

    Good Job! What’s next?

    • Kristi November 3, 2014 #

      Oh my wonderful friend!! Thank you!! You made me smile on a first of the month Monday! Today, that’s a feat! And you’ll just have to watch your email for the next one! You’ll get it soon because it’s time to wrap this series up and move on to something new. . . But I can’t spoil the surprise and tell you!

      Unfortunately, no, no recording. The organization doesn’t record the conferences because it can get very personal and they don’t want to take the chance of any sensitive material accidentally getting out. So I only have my notes, which I think I followed – sort of – and my props – which were amazing! If I do say so myself! 🙂 The Lord definitely took over and it did flow like water. Totally cool isn’t it?!? You should see if your church would have me come give the talk, or a close version, and then you can “experience” it yourself! Trust me, it would be well worth it! Plus then I would have an excuse to come visit!!

      Have you ever been to a Tres Dias Men’s Retreat? There’s one on the Front Range. I think you would REALLY enjoy it. It’s not really for new believers, but for us “old timers” it’s the best I’ve ever been to.

      Take care,
      Kristi

    I bet that was an over whelming moment for anybody to have God take over ur words and speak to whomever it was ment for. What a neat thing to of been able to be that vehicle for somebody. Sure wish I could of heard n seen it myself. Proud of you for trusting God to lead you. That had to of been so nerve racking but you just trusted and went for it!

    • Kristi November 5, 2014 #

      Thank you Mika! It was pretty incredible! From the reaction I received I think He definitely used it in several lives. It’s an awesome feeling, but incredibly humbling at the same time. I mean, I’m me. I cuss, I think some horrible thoughts, I sin on big and little ways every day. But He can still use me if I surrender to Him. Pretty amazing life lesson don’t cha think? !?
      Love you!

    This was great too Kristi! It isn’t always easy to let go of yourself and give in to God so He can take over. I’m thankful you were able to do that and since you did, someone’s life was touched! God bless you as you work for Him!

    • Kristi Ross December 29, 2014 #

      Hi Kathy! Thank you for reading this post, for appreciating it, and for your comments.

      Yes, at times it’s tough to truly let go and let God. But it’s always incredibly rewarding when you do!

      Thank you for your wonderful support!

      God bless you and your sweet family!

      Happy New Year,
      Kristi
