Leadership Summit Day 1

Kelley says...............

Today I went to a Leadership Summit. I really didn't know what to expect. Wow. God really showed me how my thinking about my calling has been really limited. My main focus has been that I want to raise awareness about self-breast exams and I had really been feeling like I wanted to focus on young women with Stage 1 breast cancer like myself, the ones who have hope like me. 

The interesting thing is I have been praying for 2 days now for God to reach through me and radically change others. For months, I have been quoting and speaking out Ephesians 3:20 "By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope". So today I feel in my spirit God ask me "What if by helping women find a lump, you help them find ME?" Well duh! Why hadn't I thought of this before? YES! This is the bigger picture. I am so excited about this I am about to jump out of my skin. To think that not only will I help save peoples lives I can actually help them find JESUS! I've never, ever thought of "witnessing" to people and the thought of it scares me to death. But I can do this! 

The second thing God showed me today is that I had limited myself to thinking that I wanted to only reach women with my exact story. But he showed me loud and clear that if a person who has cancer at ANY stage who has Jesus, they have hope. Even if they are dying with incurable cancer, they have hope. OMG, again.....DUH! Wow, I can't believe I didn't see this before and feel ashamed for having such limited thinking but so humbled, grateful and so very thankful that God revealed this to me today!! I'm so glad that God's ways are so much higher than ours and that he who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil 1:6)

Love you all!
