Russ and I went to an incredible conference this weekend in Augusta, GA. The conference was put together by Point to Hope Ministries. It was titled "The Year of Great Faith"! Russ spoke for one of the workshops and sang the special music each evening. The most incredible part about the whole weekend was God speaking directly and specifically to Russ and myself. But the message is for everyone! The main thing God tried to get across to us is that He loves us! He chooses us! And He has a great plan for us! He only asks for two things in return. One, that we love Him more than we love ourselves. And two, that we obey Him. Whatever He asks of us, we need to do it! Also, God is not going to give us the big picture right now. He is only leading us one step at a time and He wants to see if we are going to obey Him day in and day out in the big things and the little things. So here we go! One step at a time, one day at a time, one obedient act at a time, following blindly a God who would rather die for us than live without us!
