Birthing a New Work

24 09 2011

Several months ago I began working on a conference to take around the state of Oregon, in response to the move of God’s spirit, called Igniting the Kingdom ~ The Shalom Blessing.

            In the past God has brought a speaking team together to share the load so I looked to build the team. The Lord brought the core of the worship team and several of the speaking team on board, so I went forward, when the unthinkable happened, the speakers had to withdraw. Sitting at my desk after the call, I was devastated and thought about scrapping the project. Then I sensed the Lord saying to me, “You wouldn’t have gone out on this branch by yourself, so this was the only way to get you out here. Go forward.” I was further comforted because the Friday night talk was together and God had provided the perfect person, who had caught the vision, to manage the Salem conference. 

            I wish I could say the struggle ended there, but it had only begun for I had to rethink everything, including the conference name since the two of the speakers were from Salem we were calling it Igniting the Kingdom, the Salem blessing. Several days later I got a call from one of the gals who had withdrawn and she told me “you know Salem means Shalom (peace)” and reminding me “peace is one of the fruits of the spirit!” So the conference got its new name. More confirmation came hours later, as I remembered God releasing a vision in 2007, of a fruits of the spirit conference, I would lead in Florence.  

           I am in awe as I walk this road with the Lord. I rejoice as He births this new thing in me. I have ordered the banner, posters and cards for the Portland Conference and the team is gathering on site for the first time to meet with the Lord in advance of the conference. I wait expectantly for His move in all our lives!
