What IF We Were A Generation of Women That Changed The World????
I just got done with a 2 day women’s conference called the IF Gathering. Can I say, AMAZING!!! There were so many things that happened, that my brain is ready to explode. I do know that I feel fearless. Like I want to go change the world. I feel like I am super woman on steroids and nothing is going to stop me. Not even the devil himself.
So I wanted to take this time and talk to you about, what the IF Gathering is and what it has done for me.
Once a year they do an IF Gathering event. This year it was in Austin, Texas. The great thing is that there is a live video streaming from the event, so anyone could watch it. I went to a local church about 40 minutes away and met with around 50 women. We were able to pray, eat, discuss and watch the video together. It was a wonderful time to refocus my life on God. To give myself a break as a mom (even though I felt bad), and make myself rejuvenated. https://ww2.ifgathering.com/gather/austin/
There is also an If Gathering Table. Each month you and some girl friends are suppose to get together and have dinner somewhere. While you are together there will be conversation cards that you can print out from https://ww2.ifgathering.com/table/. These questions help to lead you and your friends down a path that keeps you close to God. If you still have questions, like I did at first, checkout: https://ww2.ifgathering.com/new-to-the-table/.
I have 4 friends along with mysel,f that have been meeting once a month since March, to do the IF gathering together. I look forward to meeting with them. It is a time to grow in God with friends that are amazing. We not only meet once a month, but we also support each other in difficult times. We pray for each other, and laugh together. There is nothing like having 4 friends that really care.
If you go to http://www.ifequip.com/ and sign up with just your e-mail. They will send you daily devotionals (Mon.-Fri.). Each day you can read a Bible verse, listen to other women discuss what the verse means to them. Then you can comment on the verse yourself. Finally, there are questions after each Bible verse that will help you to dig deeper in God’s word.
Eventually there will be equip groups, http://www.ifequip.com/groups.
If you feel like God will never use you for anything. How could he? What talents do you have? This is the section is to help you see everyday, ordinary women that are making a difference in the world. They are all just following God and letting Him lead them. With God nothing is impossible. If you need that extra push to jump off the ledge and follow God, go to: http://ifgathering.com/unleash/.
* Please do not let another year go by, where you wonder, What if? What if I had listened to God? What if I had let my fears go and just take one step forward? What if I didn’t listen to the negative people around me and followed God instead? What if I thought that I was good enough and tried to do something new? What if…? What if … ? What if…? STOP!!! No more, What if years!! This is the year to make a difference in your life, in your families life and in the community/world around us. GO!! What are you waiting for?
