Preparing for Chapel

Tomorrow morning I have the amazing privilege of speaking at women’s chapel at Emmaus Bible College. When I was a student, I loved this event that only happened a few times a semester. We always had guest speakers, faculty wife’s speakers and even student speakers. Every time, I was so encouraged and empowered by the messages.  I always wondered what I would share if I had the opportunity to speak for chapel as a student. Well, this month I was  asked to be a guest speaker and I’m telling you, I have the jitters!

I’m so excited to bring the message that God has put on my heart from Ephesians 3:14-21. This passage has been on my mind since November and I’m still finding new gems from it as I dig deeper. It’s filled with empowerment and challenge as Paul prays for STRENGTH with the Spirit’s power and Christ’s indwelling to comprehend and KNOW His love  and thus be filled with ALL the fullness of God. This passage is dripping with God’s incredible power and strength and the reality that we have full access to that power and strength.  I strongly recommend taking a few minutes with this scripture. Take some time to challenge your focus and goals – do you greatly desire to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ  that surpasses knowledge? Are you asking for the strength to do so? Do you believe He will give you that strength?

If you think of it, you can pray for me that I would avail of some of His power and strength as I speak to the girls tomorrow. Pray that God’s Spirit would reach us with what we need to hear.
