The whole conference was amazing! All of the teaching was incredible! I can’t get over how almost every message had the theme of personal responsibility for our lives and not blaming God for spiritual problems, which is where I am probably growing the most. It was amazing.
It’s amazing what happens when you suddenly view everything from a different perspective! As I am going back through my conference notes from this past weekend, I am in awe of what I was able to receive. I encountered God in a way that I honestly never have before. I’ve never fully surrendered to the God I professed to know, love and follow. There are parts of our hearts that we keep tucked away from Him... like you can have everything in me, but this part right here and that part over there... Those are the parts I won’t even dare to look at, much less let someone else... But when you truly open (your heart) and truly allow God into every area of your heart, light breaks through and suddenly things seem so different! The shadowy places you used to tuck away and try to hide are exposed and fully open and suddenly those things don’t seem like such large giants now. Over the course of the conference I was able to take the guards down, truly accept who I am, and allow God to basically give me a heart transplant. I woke up Sunday morning and I can’t explain it but I was a different person! There is an excitement in me, a reignited passion, I never want to lose! I’ve got things stirring in me that I had long forgotten or given up on all together! This weekend truly changed me!
