I attended a Daughters of Destiny conference yesterday evening and I must say the message was and continues to be profound.
Lisa Bevere was the speaker for the night; she’s the best selling author of Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry.
Here are a few notes I took down and my prayer is that you will be encouraged and inspired to write your own life story.
11 The Lord announced the word,
and great was the company of those who proclaimed it:
12 “Kings and armies flee in haste;
in the camps men divide the plunder.
It is important to have the voice of the woman and the voice of the man in the home.
We need to pass on the legacy of love to our children, who will inherit that legacy and pass it on to their children
Lisa noticed that women, world over, don’t like each other, even in the church, and as a result see men as answers. This only triggers a vicious cycle of women acting and sounding like men, the reverse is true, men acting and sounding like women.
We are answers not problems. There’s a problem out there that you and I are the answer to. Ladies, look in the mirror everyday and tell yourself that you’re an answer.
If you think you’re a problem, you’ll become one. Change your mindset. Think of yourself as an answer, and before long, you’ll become one.
Single women, stop selling yourselves cheaply. A single man today looks 10yrs older; a single woman takes off the same number of years from him. It is broken women that tend to divide others and things that God needs multiplied.
You need to know the Word of God personally. Read it.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Definition of the word ‘write’ means to ordain or prophesy what will happen in the future.
When God speaks the Word, it goes back to Him when we speak it back into the lives of our children, our families, our friends, everything.
We are not what we do. We are what we pass on.
9 Daughters of kings are among your honored women;
at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir.
10 Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear:
Forget your people and your father’s house.
11 The king is enthralled by your beauty;
honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The Daughter of Tyre will come with a gift, [b]
men of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber ;
her gown is interwoven with gold.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king;
her virgin companions follow her
and are brought to you.
15 They are led in with joy and gladness;
they enter the palace of the king.
16 Your sons will take the place of your fathers;
you will make them princes throughout the land.
Lay hold of God’s promises in your life. WRITE YOUR LIFE WELL.
Men plan wars. Women plan weddings. Being the last days, those two events are at hand. Let’s get up and get cracking. Connect with relating people, people that believe in the same cause that you do. Relating people look alike
50For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
God has something specific for me. Find out what that is.
Revive the dreams your heart once had. Let that divine hunger make you write your life. You need to face your fears, and become FEARLESS.
The end of your story is not yet written out.
Write it out.
She closed with scripture from Esther 4:14
14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”
till next time,
easy does it 🙂
