If God is real…


The If:Gathering.

My head feels as if it is literally swirling as I am processing all that I heard this weekend.

So many amazing speakers who were so passionate about reigniting a desire to follow God in simple yet radical ways.  I still can’t put my finger on it exactly, even as I keep getting asked about what I learned and what it was about.  I am pretty sure that the simplicity of the whole thing is really just sending my brain into default mode.

The concept of the conference was very simple; If God is real, than what?  To be honest before I saw anything I really had no idea what this whole thing was going to be about.  The lure was basically in seeing some of my favorite speakers and spending some kid free time with my girlfriends.  As the conference began we were brought on a journey through stories and nudges and uncomfortable but honest moments, that just asked; If God is real, then what?

How do we find our purpose?

How do we know our calling?

How do we see people?

How do we interact with people?

We were presented with question after question after question that can’t be answered right away; it was a type A personality nightmare!

So I am being gracious to myself and giving myself time to digest it.  I am reminding myself that a true mind shift doesn’t happen overnight.  It will take time to adjust all the minor parts of my life that have been looking in the wrong direction; inward instead of outward and upward.

As we drove home and chatted over dinner about living life out in light of all we learned, I came to the conclusion that I don’t need all the answers right now.  Its ok to just let my brain be stretched and focus on what I know to be true.

I know He fills the cracks, mends the wounds, heals the hurts, and comforts with His love.

It is not through me or by me that anything in this life is mine.

For me, if God is real then….

He is enough for me.
