Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3
Calling all writers, speakers, and leaders, or anyone looking for great encouragement and wisdom! I attended this conference a couple years ago and it was by far the best conference I have ever attended! So many incredibly anointed speakers authors, publicists, agents, break-out rooms, one-to-one meetings, and prayer rooms. I left the conference uplifted, inspired, and rejuvenated! This year’s conference is accessible to everyone all over the world as this year it will be a virtual conference, online. There is still time to register and you can’t beat the cost considering all that you will have access to! Check it out below.
I am also excited, humbled and honored to be part of the SpeakUp Conference’s prayer team this year, as well as the conference’s virtual coffee room this year! I can’t wait and I am excited and expectant of what God is going to do in and through the lives of each participant in this year’s conference!
