God Came to the M11 Conference in Louisville, KY

This week I've been attending our denominational M11 Conference.  It's a group of leaders from the Church of the Nazarene in the USA and Canada all coming together for a series of meetings and workshops.

While I expected that this would be a great event, I did not expect God to show up in the way that He did.  For years I've said "You cannot be in the presence of a Holy God and remain the same."  When you truly meet God, you are changed by His presence.  That is exactly what happened this week.  God came - and we are different for the experience.

Right now it's almost midnight.  It's been a great week and I'm excited to get back home to my family.  I'm wondering how I adequately share with them what God has done this week.  I also can't wait to share with my church family on Sunday.  If God would come upon our church service in a similar way to how He showed up this week, things would definitely change.  That's what I'm praying for and looking forward to for this weekend - that God would reveal Himself to our people and that we would be forever changed by His presence. 

Thanks, God, for what you've done in my life this week!
