Hey all my faithful readers (whoever you are, if there really are any. 🙂

I am back!

I should be done traveling for a while now, or at least two more months. On to our regularly scheduled blogging! 🙂 I am hoping that I will be back to posting at least one post a day! So that means….

You have to come back and check out those posts, because I need people to read them, or you know…why blog? 🙂

———————————————————————————————

So you all know, (maybe?) that the Lord incredibly blessed me with an all-paid-for trip to IHOP-KC in Kansas City, MO. I was able to go with a sweet family that has “adopted” me. The Carrs.

We went to the Passion for Jesus Conference. I said that I would blog about my experience and all. So here I am, finally getting around to it. 🙂

I feel as if I have acutally been living for the Lord for only about 3 and a half years. I’ve been “saved” for 12 years. And what I mean by actually living for the Lord, is that I have given Him all of myself. I am ruined for anything else but Jesus Christ. I can’t live in compromise, and I can’t live in the world and Christianity. I choose Jesus. Nothing else will ever satisfy. And in the past 3 1/2 years I’ve become a completely different person. Oh please don’t get me wrong, I’m messed up and weak, but now I am letting God have His way with me. I’m leaning on Him and letting Him be strong in me. IHOP has had a HUGE impact in the way my life has changed. It is because God has used IHOP in my life. So I’ve been going to conferences and listening to sermons, and teaching and reading books etc…

But I really felt that even though I might hear some of the same things I’ve already heard or that I know at the Passion for Jesus Conference, God was going to do something. There were many amazing speakers and many amazing teachings.

Here is what stood out and what God is continuing to teach me:

1) The youngest Carr girl is Susanna. She is 10 and she is in love with Jesus! She blew me away with the things God was teaching her. She went to the Children’s Equipping Center during the conference. Every time she came back from her session, which lasted between 2-3 hours, she was bubbling with excitement over what God had done! She comes back excited to pray. She tells me how God spoke to her and showed her things. So God is doing something HUGE in the young generation. We cannot hinder the children from coming to Him. God speaks to everyone, even children. I love seeing Him move and what He is doing with those younger then me!

2) Mike Bickle spoke the first night on the First commandment. Which the Lord has been speaking to me about. And the thing that he said that impacted me and stood out was something like this: Most people in the prayer room believe that they are living out the first commandment when they are in the prayer room sitting before the Lord, and that they are living the second commandment out when they are outside of the prayer room. He said this is a wrong perspective. Yes, you are loving God when you are in the prayer room, but when you are in intercession for people, this is loving them. When you can spend hours praying for people, giving up your time because you believe that God is going to break in for them. Or giving up your time because you want God to break in on their situation. This is love. And when we walk outside of the prayer room and live our lives and we choose humility over pride, or we choose not to lust, or we choose to say yes to God in those situations when it is really hard, this is truly loving God…think about that. We have the wrong perspective of the prayer room. I know that I even do sometimes.

3) The Lord blessed me with the opportunity to sit in a Misty Edwards set in the prayer room. It was powerful and spoke to me about His love for me! And how He evaluates us on the heart issues and on how much we love Him. Not based on our ministries, or how many people love us, or how sucessful we are. It was powerful.

4) And last, I went to a break out session on Compassion for the Needy being taught by Benji Nolot. He started the organization called Exodus Cry, for the ending of human trafficking

This is something that the Lord has been speaking to me about. I’ve been praying for the ending of human trafficking, I’ve been having dreams about it and I believe that the Lord is leading me to go on a missions trip to a country where this is a big issue. His session really impacted me because I realized how little compassion I really have on those who are in need. Those who are being oppressed and victimized. So my prayer and cry is that God would put compassion in my heart like He has. That I would pray for the issues that Jesus prays for. That I would weep over the things that He weeps for! Help me God! And I know that He will do it because it is His desire!
