Pastel Pleats and Praise

Hey everyone!!
Well this post is L-O-N-G overdue! I’ve been super busy the last few weeks and I when I sat down to recap my experiences at the Joyce Meyer conference I wanted to be sure I had enough time to devote to this post. The conference took place a couple weeks ago at the Palace of Auburn Hills.  I was fortunate enough to attend on the last day of the conference and I was even luckier to snag a third row seat in the packed arena!!

Praise and worship was lead by Isreal Houghton and New Breed and they really aided in getting the praise session started. I was so pumped and overjoyed just to be in the presence of so many believers! It was truly amazing! 

After reading over my notes which are three pages long, I figured it would be a good idea to split this post  into a mini-series entitled Armed and Dangerous. 

Prior to my hiatus from blogging earlier this year, I had never really listened to or followed Joyce Meyer before. I had heard of her but I didn’t know her story. During that very difficult time in my life I needed to be feed by the Word and one day the Spirit lead me to begin listening to Joyce Meyer’s teachings. I very quickly became hooked to them and I quickly downloaded every app that I could find and I even purchased two of her books, The Battlefield of the Mind and Living Beyond Your Feelings. 

She encourages us to get to know God for ourselves and not rely on a preacher or teacher, but to have an intimate, one-on-one relationship with God and get to know His Word for ourselves. 

What I love most about Joyce Meyer is her ability to share her story so freely; we can all gain hope and increase our faith and endurance by knowing that God can and will keep on His promises to us. He will never abandon us regardless of  circumstances, now, present or past.
