Colour Your World Women's Conference
It was beautiful. Everything is orchestrated magnificently beautiful.
9 thousand women gather together, storming heaven with praise and worship. It's an incredible experience.
For me, it was like a time of cleaning up. I found myself like a garden without TLC for quite a while, neglected by all sorts of reasons. It really took no time for the weeds to grow. Didn't know when it started, but certainly there're some weeds there, and without management they're shooting up and overtaking the good grass and flowers. And it just looks messy. Well, that's exactly like my life. I haven't guarded and protected the garden, and all kinds of negative attitutes, thinkings and behavior are shooting up all over the places. And it's a time for a big cleaning up.
It actually takes a lot of work. You can't just expect the garden or a house to automatically remain clean and tidy all the time by itself. You have to constantly pull out the weeds, fertilize, water, dusting, vacuuming, etc. ... to keep them under control. And it's the same with our spiritual lives. We have to work on our spiritual lives, water the garden and pull out weeds on a regular basis. I can just see there're so many long long weeds in my spiritual garden, and I need to recognise them and pull them out. And I need to let the good grass be nurtured and have a chance to grow. It takes decision and action.
Then heart is everything. When you have a heart of Jesus, it comes out of you in every way, and people feel it and see it without you even say anything. "You have to be before you can do."
The finale was a perfomance piece, and it was absolutely brilliant. Four male singers lowered down from the ceiling onto the stage singing a beautiful love song, and then little princesses danced around, with full lighting while pink and silver confetti was showered over the stage and the audience, and the whole stadium was like a night time sky with millions of stars shining and moving around. It was just beautiful. Ladies around me were in tears as it was just so nice. And Ellie was among the little princess dancers. They look gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous and adorable. Then Bobbie Houston, the hostess of the conference took Ellie's hands as she walked around and closed the conference.
It was such an experience. I'm so glad that I went. I knew God wanted me to be there this time. And I have to say that it is lifechanging.
Well, you must have thought how messy it is with my writing. Your right. I'm so tired now my mind's just not working. I'm still too excited to go to bed. Anyway, I'd better go, it's 1am.
