The most awesome thing about the conference was the victory of my obedience though. Last year at ACFW I went with my own agenda. This year I went praying like breathing and with a heart to serve others. I know God asked me to go focused on others and not myself. I poured myself into that and I can honestly tell you the fact that God enabled me to have a soft heart that said yes when He asked me to give up my own agenda for the sake of others is the true victory for me. I'll tell you though, winning the Noble Theme was pretty awesome, too!

Thanks judges!

congrats! Thank you for the message about serving others. I am having a tough time at home trying to take care of siblings and a parent on my disability income. Two ministers have told me to hang in and don't feel bitter, and to stop focusing on myself. I am going to really focus on making my family feel good today despite all things God knows I need. Thanks for the entry.
