Won’t you revive us again,
so your people can rejoice in you?
Psalm 85: 6
For the past 5 years an ever-growing group of women from my church attend the Women of Faith conference. This year’s theme, From Survival to Revival, was appointed for me. Oh, who’m I kidding, there’s a lot of us who are stuck in the survival stage of life.
For me its lingering grief. Most days I struggle to get out of bed. I dread leaving the house and everyday responsibilities seem like mountains to climb.
For you it could be a floundering career, a dull marriage, an addicted child, financial strain, guilt, depression… on and on.
We forget about revival because we are just happy to survive.
But here’s the thing, Jesus leaves you in better shape than when he found you. Jesus gives life. Jesus resurrects. Jesus heals, restores, rebuilds and redeems… if we let him.
So here’s what I want to do. I want to start a revival Right here.
This one is all about class participation girls. In the comments section post your struggle. What’s making it hard for you to survive?
Then, this is the really important part, someone leave a scripture message that speaks truth and hope to someone else’s struggle. We don’t have to go to a conference to find revival. We just have to go to the Word of God.
Ready. Set. GO!
