Melinda and I had the privilege of attending the Designed For Life conference last weekend in Ozark, MO. This was my 7th and Melinda’s 6th year to attend and we love it more every year. We came home uplifted, refreshed, and inspired spiritually, mentally, and emotionally (although our bodies were a little tired).
This year’s theme was She is the Revolution.
Take your everyday, ordinary life—
your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—
and place it before God as an offering.
Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.
Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture
that you fit into it without even thinking.
Instead, fix your attention on God.
You’ll be changed from the inside out.
The message of Designed for Life is simple. Every girl on this planet is magnificently and beautifully designed for a purpose by her Creator. Psalm 139 says, You (God) are the one who put me together inside my mother’s body. And, I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvelous!”
Women need to lay aside what they have been told, to forget what media marketing is telling them and realize that the most high God of the universe, their Heavenly Father designed and crafted every detail of their person…and every tiny detail is magnificent and beautiful! And I believe that when a girl (no matter what her age) embraces and accepts who she was created to be and can praise God for how she was designed (physically and intellectually), then she will be free to serve God fully and joyfully…released from the bondage of insecurity.
Make plans now to join us next year at Celebrate Designed For Life Women’s 2014 Conference on Oct 9-11. You can get details and registration information here.
