Today's Devotional Thought

A Little Piece of Heaven
I am very excited today because Wendy and I are taking a group of women to the Extraordinary Women Conference this weekend. By the time many of you read this, we will have already left for our 36 hours of God-time and girl-time!
I just love going to conferences. I know I have written about it many times before, but it is the closest thing to heaven, I believe, that we get on this earth.
If you ever have an opportunity to go to a women's conference like Extraordinary Women or Women of Faith, then I urge you to go. And, go with your best friend or some girlfriends from your church or family. There is truly nothing better than worshipping the Lord alongside your friends with thousands of other women. And I believe, it is a taste of heaven. It is a momentary glimpse into what it will be like when we have nothing to worry about except worshipping our Lord alongside the people we love.
A day is coming, dear friends, when you won't have to worry about grocery shopping or running to the gym or laundry or strained relationships or any of the hardships and stressors of life. A day is coming when you will get to worship and sing and laugh and bask in the presence of the King. And as I reflect on the piece of heaven that I will get over the next 36 hours, I smile and am filled with excitement at the thought that even though I live in a hard world right now, someday I will live in that state for all of eternity.
