I have been a singer all of my life (voice major in college) and have spent the last 20+ years as a Worship Leader. I have led Women's Bible studies for years and I love the word of God! I have always sought out other speakers and attend women's events often, as I love fresh insight into God's Word.
All too often the problem for me was these women's events didn't build my spiritual knowledge. There were more cute stories than scriptural references and I was learning more about the speaker than about God.
I was leaving a women's event about 7 years ago and was lamenting with God in my car... "Ok God, so what is my take-away from that?" He pressed into me... "Well, if you think Women want to go deeper... then take them deeper... and I was off to the computer."
We were privileged to have Suzie speak at our women's retreat which consisted of 55 women. The content of her messages wove various scriptures, the lives of Gods people and their challenges together with her testimony of hard times, and the results of her own disobedience . She disclosed how Gods faithfulness has brought her to a deep love for Him and His word.
Her ability to share humor through relevant illustrations brought a sense of joy and laughter. Her messages caused me to do some deep soul-searching, longing for God to be first in my life in all things. I know I am a work in progress, but loved the challenge to consider, in order for Him to become first in my life. Along with her messages, she incorporated beautiful songs of worship. I went away knowing that I was drinking from the well of truth, and now I want to put into practice that which God revealed to me.
Thank you Suzie, for allowing God to use your life as an example of Gods transforming power, to those who say yes to God. We so need this in our ever- changing world that has lost Gods plumb line.
Refreshing and joyful describe my recent experience at a retreat where Suzie Umbel was both the speaker and the vocalist. Suzie authentically shared her own journey in life, and challenged me and others to trust and follow Jesus Christ. The songs she sang were beautiful and inspiring. She made me laugh, challenged me to think, and encouraged me as she shared her heart for God. Before the retreat was over many people were requesting her return for next year's retreat. I will be there!
