Dear Friends,

I recently attended one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended in my entire working career. It was the annual national convention attended by over 1,500 professional speakers. Every time I attend a big conference I ask God to give me “divine connections.” This time was no exception. I prayed that prayer before I arrived at the event. And guess what? He did.

I attended the special “International Speakers Day” where I met a lady from Italy who has lived in 32 countries and speaks five languages. I was impressed with her background and we hit it off right away. We became friends. Throughout the conference I met other speakers from Ireland, India, Canada, and of course, from the United States. There were over 20 countries represented at this convention so it was fun to meet some of the other international speakers.

Through the conference my new friend and I spent some time together and I found out she and her husband are believers too. I then shared with her that I asked God to give me divine connections and that I believed God had put us together so we could pray for each other going forward and to simply be there for each other in the future.

When I returned, I shared with my husband that I had made a new friend and that this was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended. I told him I had several great takeaways that I hope to implement in my business. I emailed my new friend to tell her what a blessing it had been to have met her. When she emailed me back, I was surprised at what she wrote… She said, “My biggest thing I learned from this conference came from YOU… to ‘pray for divine connections.’ After you said that, something just clicked inside my soul, like an ‘aha moment.’ It’s simple but meaningful prayer, so important to have those uplifting connections.”

After I read her email, I reflected on this experience and realized God had taught me a big lesson too. I had prayed for God to give me “business” divine connections—which is totally fine to do and I encourage you to do so. But God reminded me with this experience that HIS people are always more important than business. And He connects us so we can support one another and pray for each other in time of need. Even though it was one of the best conventions I’ve ever attended, that was my biggest takeaway from the entire event!

I encourage you to always be on the lookout for God’s people. Always put people first and be ready and willing to be used by God to help others. God’s Business is always about HIS people!

1 Thessalonians 5:11

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
