Meeting with God in Ohio!

Today I’m traveling a few hundred miles to seek God with a group of hungry-hearted women tomorrow morning. We’ll be spending the day together and I’m asking God to fill my mouth to speak what He knows we need to hear. Will you pray for us?

Please pray that God will meet with us and instruct us. 

Whenever I speak, it is always with fear and trembling; knowing what an awesome responsibility it is to share God’s Word. So why am I setting out on the long drive and putting myself under that pressure again? What is my motivation in giving up the weekend with my favorite person in the world (my hubby) and missing out on a morning worship service with my church family (missing my favorite pastor’s message—again, my hubby!)?

Why am I in Ohio? I’ve shared this with you before, but I can never say this enough:

Women need to hear the truth about our great redeeming God.

We live in a day noisy with the clutter of false ideas and loud, ungodly, rhetoric. Women are confused and in need of truth. Marriages are failing, children are walking away from the faith and women are drowning in a sea of lost dreams and hopelessness. I can’t fix this, but I know One who can.

What is the answer?

Our only hope is a mighty, mountain-moving, earth-quaking, nation-shaking movement of God. I’m asking Him to do this. I’m asking God to bring revival.

Don’t misunderstand me when you read the word revival. I’m not talking about an old-fashioned tent meeting, or church event on the calendar where people come, have an emotional experience, and leave without measureable life-change.

When I use the word: revival, I’m talking about a revolution of mind and heart that so affects a group of people that there is no mistaking they’ve been radically affected by God! 

A God-Centered Revolution where:

  • People cannot get enough of the Word of God—they hungrily devour it, memorize it, meditate on it, and then (what a novel idea) they actually APPLY it to their daily lives!
  • Employees view their place of work as their mission field and live out their Christianity with integrity, graciousness, a God-centered work ethic, and sincere hospitality.
  • The cynicism of the age begins to close its mouth in wonder over the obvious work of God in people’s lives.

This is what I dream for. This is what I live for. This is why I pack my bags and take another weekend away. I’m only one small speaker in a world of voices, but I pray God meets with us. I pray God moves in the lives of women who are attending this conference.

I’m asking God to ignite the fire of revival.

Will you join me in asking for that? Will you pray for us this weekend?

    Heavenly Father, I praise you and thank you for placing this passion for revival upon Kim’s heart. Send forth your Holy Spirit, O Lord, to awaken a longing in the hearts of these women to know You as You desire to be known and to go forth as Your hands and feet as faithful servants of our Most High God. May Your words that You speak through Kim bring these women hope and encouragement. May they bring forth fruits of repentance where needed and lead to works of righteousness for the sake of Your precious Son, Jesus. Bless Kim and the words of her mouth. May they speak life to the hearers. Grant her safety in her travels. I ask in the name of Jesus. Amen!
