As I'm preparing for the VIP Conference, my mind goes back to a message I preached exactly 16 days ago and I'm so reminded that nothing just happens to us except that the Lord allows and everything I do is exclusively Jesus.
I know you may be wondering, what has happened to bring Danyelle to this point? It's been a couple of things but the most pressing things are these:
1) I've gotten disappointed often thinking about how my life has gone and....
A. I had to realize that my life is not my own
B. I had to come to grips with my worldly success does not define me; and
C. I had to recognize that I must have a motive for whatever it is I'm doing whether it's a conference or a weekly gathering.
2) I've wondered why people don't treat me like I treat them and....
A. I had to understand everyone connected to me is not in covenant with me.
B. I had to notice that whether people like what I say or do, is not a reflection of the merits of my actions; and
C. I had to believe that my belief in Jesus will always carry me where people refuse to take me.
3) I've thought everything I put my hands to was about Danyelle doing Danyelle or at least what I was purposed to do then....
A. I was shown that nothing is ever about me or my happiness; God is concerned about me having joy.
B. I came to know that Jesus is the only One and only Way; not just to the Father but to abundant life; and
C. If I keep EXCLUSIVELY JESUS at the forefront of my mind, not only will I do all things as unto the Lord, I will live, breathe, and have my being in HIM!
So whether you have planned on attending this conference because you know me, or because I showed up at yours, reevaluate your motives. Know that this is no ordinary conference and it's not for ordinary people. It is EXCLUSIVELY designed to bring EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN in one place, at one time to devote some hours to finding out how VISION leads to a life INSPIRED by PURPOSE and they have come to understand everything they do is EXCLUSIVELY JESUS!
