The Slumber Party

Last night my girl friends and I had a slumber party. Its the first time I've been to a slumber party, and I had a really nice time. I felt very loved that my friends took the time out of their busy lives to come spend the night at my house. We sat around the fire pit. We played with the hula hoop. We laughed. We ate. We roasted marsh mellows. We watched a movie. We told stories. To me, I moved a little closer in relationship with each of my friends, because I had time with them. I learned that each one of them is willing to invest in me and in one another, and to me that builds trust. To me that builds love, hope, and a future for more time together. To me, showing up is everything. Each of them are crowned Princesses shining with His light!
We stayed up late into the night and talked. We laughed. And, we were serious too. We gave the word "annoyance" a color, because it needed one. We talked about Macaroni necklaces, and someone called me out on being catty. She was right. It was the macaroni, I had to stop!
I awoke this morning and went to talk to Jesus. There were a few things I needed to settle with Him! I was so thrilled with my friends and the slumber party, and so blessed with all He has brought into my life. Yet, I was still feeling the color of olive green because of some old feelings of rejection that were trying to stir inside of me.
Jesus continues to remind me to rest in His heart and to focus on Him. He reminds to look at what I have, the beauty of the friends that surround me and love me. And, they certainly do! He has promised a revival around me, renewal around me, and power in His Spirit. He lead me to Luke 9-"-He commissioned them to preach the news of God's kingdom and heal the sick."
He has commissioned me to speak, and that is what I will do. He has surrounded me with friends to build me up not tear me down and I will praise Him for that. So, Friends, move forward with your crowns of glory and share Jesus with others, build them up, bring them in, love them, and let there be a revival in our land!
Jesus, Say That Again to ALL of us, there will be a revival in the land, and it starts with slumber parties, friends, real relationships, love. It's about Your Power, Jesus!
