Recently I did the music at a Women's Leadership Conference in Grand Rapids, MI at Cornerstone University/Seminary. The keynote speaker was Dee Brestin and wow what a great speaker! One of the things she kept saying over and over that really challenged me was "God loves us just the way we are and too much to let us stay that way".
It's so nice to be loved and accepted just as I am - no strings attached. But I like the thought of being loved enough to be moved on to be all I can be - not just what I am now.
