Are My Plans Going to Fail? Am I Really Going?

When I discovered the Relevant Conference, I was so very excited.  I had just begun to really spend time developing my blog and was trying very hard to make connections with other bloggers.  I quite literally stumbled into a Twitter party that was all about going to Relevant.  I planned right away to talk to my husband about going, and I purchased a ticket.  I didn't know how I would pay for the rest of the trip, but I began planning to raise money by selling some items on Etsy and doing some graphic design work.

My plans were working, and I had raised the needed money to purchase an airline ticket, twice.  But two different times our household came upon some financial stress and I had to raid my Relevant fund to use it for household expenses. Ugh.

And now as we approach very quickly less than 100 days until the conference, I still do not have the needed money to pay for an airline ticket and hotel and my time is running out.

Would you pray for me?  If God wants me at Relevant, he has all the resources in the world to get me there, and He will provide.  However, if I have misread his intentions, I want to accept His answer with grace, as my disappointment will be heavy not being able to meet so many of you face to face.

Thank you, my dear Sisters in Christ!

Praying for you and sincerely hope it is God's plan that you attend- would love to meet you!

That being said, I have had God cancel my plans to attend a writing conference that I was REALLY looking forward to and I didn't understand it at the time. Well, He had something else in store for me ministry wise that I wouldn't have been able to do if I had been gone that weekend.

So either way, rest in the knowledge that He has it all worked out!

I'll be praying. I hope you'll still be able to go. Your post reminded me that I still need to order a Relevant necklace from you (if you're still making them). :)
