I'm full like Thanksgiving....like stuffed and ready to pop!! I just returned from the God's Glamorous Girls (#ggg2k17 #pinkrain) women's conference and it was an absolutely amazing, life changing experience!! Not only was it entertaining and energizing, but it was truly a confirming experience. There is no better feeling knowing that God cares so much about His children that He continues to speak to us, lead us and guide us. He answers our prayers and affirms us so we know that we really are important to Him.
I could run down the list of presenters (including our visionary, co-Pastor, and anointed woman of God Dr. Dee Dee Freeman), speakers and entertainers, names of people who are known in both the faith-based communities and in the secular world, but there were so many that I would suggest you check the various social media outlets using hashtags #ggg2k17 and #pinkrain!
While I enjoyed the fellowship with other like-minded women, I also attended the conference because I wanted confirmation about some things I have been seeking God about. I was not sure exactly what answers I would get, but I knew there would be answers. And WOW did I hear them so specifically that I knew they were exactly what I needed to hear!
Each of us has questions about our lives and how God wants us to live it. According to Ephesians 2:10 (NLT): "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago". We can take comfort knowing that our God has already created us to do good things in our life. We read in 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV) "And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work". This should give us the confidence in knowing that not only has God created us with a plan and a purpose but also that, by His grace, He has abundantly given us every ability, skill, resource, talent, etc. that we need to do everything that He has ordained us to do.
Although there are CD's and DVD's of the event that I can go back and listen to and watch, I wish I could bottle up the atmosphere that was in that place during those three days! That way I could ship it to each of you so you could experience what I experienced! But since that is impossible (lol), I encourage you to introduce intentional praise and worship into your alone time with God so you can draw even closer to Him. Yes, we know that God is always with us, but there is something about really infusing your atmosphere with His presence and allowing it to permeate the walls, the ceilings, the rafters, the floorboards, the studs, the foundation...to truly dwell in His presence. In His presence there is joy, answers, direction, peace, everything you need! Let Him guide you in every area of your life so you can fulfill the very things for which He has created you.
Ephesians 1:11 (NLT)
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for He chose us in advance, and He makes everything work out according to His plan.
God bless you. Stay encouraged.
