Priceless

On Monday I mentioned that I went to a Women's Conference this past weekend, and yesterday I blogged about how I met your mother Sherry

What do these things have in common? Well, Sherry is the friend who invited me to the Women's Conference! And boy, am I glad that she did!


There's just nothing like a room full of women who love God. 

I walked in knowing no one (I got there before Sherry), and was greeted with so many hugs and warm smiles. I gave up on the whole hand shake thing, because clearly these were hugging ladies. 

Which was wonderful because so am I


The theme of the conference was Priceless, which is exactly what the weekend was. 

Every single message spoke straight to my heart. Every. single. one. 

***
We discussed the priceless promises of our God, and specifically how Jesus promises us that there is only one thing worth caring about on this Earth. And no, it's not food or work or exercising or cleaning or any of the other things that I tend to stress about on the reg. 

It's our Heavenly Father

And Jesus took this one step further and promised that time spent with our Heavenly Father will not be taken away from us. After all, spending time worrying about things of this world will never add to our life, will it? But time with Jesus will!

***
We got a renewed sense of priceless perspective. Those problems that we face on an every day basis? Believe it or not, we can choose to be thankful for those problems and consider them priceless. Why? Because problems in your life can bring you closer to Jesus.

And it's a lot easier to keep that positive mindset as your facing your problems when you're facing them with your priceless partners

Hey all you wonderful blogger friends! You better believe that you are some of my priceless partners :)

***
We studied the priceless peace that Jesus can give us, and reminded ourselves how appreciative we should be of this peace that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. 

We are called to be peace makers, but in order to be this, we need to first accept the peace that comes from our Savior. 

***
At the end of the weekend, we were all returning home with some more priceless passion for our incredible calling to be a part of our Father's kingdom. 

And not only that, but I returned home with many wonderful new friends. 


So thankful for our amazing God. His unfailing love is priceless.

I love the idea of Priceless Perspective because it is so true! Whenever I have gone through a rough time, He has been faithful and I have learned a lot and come through it stronger. The problems in life really do bring us closer to Jesus and they can become a learning experience for us.
