Coming back from a vacation that refuels you is one of my favorite reasons to go on vacation in the first place. (That and my never satisfied travel bug that’s been in me for the past 2 years)
I feel so ready to make the last 3 months of 2018 really count for the better, and make some big changes in my life that I have been working on for a long time.
Going to Florida always gives me so much energy, happiness, and pushes me to do better. I’m almost always going down to visit some of my best friends, to better my business, take a break and relax in the sun, or heading down to a conference. My current obsession with Sarasota has made me seriously think about a move!
This past weekend, I was able to ‘Come To The Table,’ at Bayside Community Church and work on one of the hardest relationships in my life- my faith. When I heard about the all womens’ Fatih conference in June, something was pulling at my heart to go.
My relationship with my Fatih is something that I’ve been wanting to work on for awhile. Growing up, my parents were not strict with us attending church, but always kept spiritual values in our family. My dad has a very strong relationship with God, and I always felt that I struggled with mine. I was not as connected as he was, but I also didn’t realize at the time- everyone has a different relationship with their faith.
Standing in a room filled with hundreds of women, all worshiping together was so fulfilling for me. Church in New England is so different than services down south, and any chance I have to go I love to take.
The energy in church this weekend was eye opening to me. I saw how other women bring faith int every day life and their business. I was able to understand why some women feel so connected- while others are still figuring out their beliefs.
My biggest take away- make time for coffee with the lord like you would make time with a friend. Let him sit at your table with you- one on one. Your relationship with your faith is yours and yours alone. Everyone is different and that is okay.
“For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow,” James 1: 2-4
Are you working on your faith? I would love to learn how you worship!
