A sold out conference, a line to get in… I’d expected to wake up Sunday morning on cloud nine. But I didn’t. I was feeling different than I thought.
The Overwhelmed Conference couldn’t have been more perfect. Anointed speakers, audience participation that shared their heart’s transparency:
“Who would want me?”
“I can’t leave it. Surrender is too difficult.”
“I’m very broken.”
“I’m not sure I trust God.”
But by the lunch hour, new words were lining the lips of women. Heads were lifted, spirits renewed.
That’s what happens when God shows up.
So why didn’t I feel that “over the top” excitement? I’m typically recharged by others. Jubilant. But I felt this strange feeling…I searched for exactly what I was experiencing and then found my answer.
This happens when I live out my purpose and do what God has called me to do.
You see, the highs of victory can drop me into deep valleys. While on the mountaintop, I can wonder, How can I top this? and then free fall into a dissatisfied spirit. But when God whispers, “Well done daughter,” it brings something more than a momentarily high. It brings an amazing feeling:
That’s were He calls me to dwell.
As Big Daddy Weave sings;
I delight myself in You,
Captivated by Your beauty.
I’m overwhelmed, I’m overwhelmed by You
