A Taste of Heaven

Most of you might think the title of my post today will be about food. In a way it is. Food for the soul. This weekend I was fed with Heavenly food that nourished my soul. It was like a shot in the arm, so to speak. If you have never attended a Women of Faith Conference, you've got to go if one is in your area. The one I attended was held in Oklahoma City for two days and this was the last one on the tour. Next year, the conference will kick off the tour in OKC in August. I am already anticipating the next one. 



The arena was filled with around ten thousand women of the same faith. ( Sixteen in our group.) Although our doctrines were slightly different, we all believe in the same Lord God and were there to praise and worship Him.  What an awesome sight. There were five speakers over the two days and three well known christian singers.  Mandesa, Sandy Patty, and Amy Grant.

                                                                    Amy Grant

                                          All speakers and singers on stage singing.

The speakers were women who shared personal experiences of how God has worked in their lives and how he can work in our lives today. They spoke on christian values and how we should let God's light shine in our everyday lives using the Bible as our guide. The singing was absolutely beautiful, especially when all music stopped and only the singing voices of ten thousand women were heard throughout the arena. What a melody!  Like I said, it was a taste of Heaven.

Blessings,
Christine

Oh I'm so glad you had a wonderful time! I haven't been to a women's conference in a few years. But I did go to a Joyce Meyer one about 7 years ago and it truly was life-changing for me. Just worshipping with so many other women made such an impact on my life. A little taste of heaven! Thanks for your comment on my blog! And I have two recipes for you. I posted them years ago, no pictures, but they're very easy and quite delicious. Here's the link: http://wifeofthecolonel.blogspot.com/2008/11/recipes.html

Hope it works out for you!!! Enjoy your day!

I have never been but have heard they are life changing. The atmosphere and worship must be awe inspiring. It sounds like you were blessed.

I always wanted to go to one of those, but have been to many smaller types. So glad you came home well fed!

I wasn't able to go this year but my daughter in love, Sarah, did. She said it was wonderful!!! I'm planning on going next year and taking my girl.

I decided after hearing Sarah's JOY from attending I dug out some tapes from past conferences and have been enjoying the hours and hours away. Can't ever hear the message of hope, love and redemption too many times.

Thank you for sharing...

Now...get your girl to JUSTICE. It's a bit costly but worth the visit. Totally sweet!

What a wonderful experience..
looks like a perfect way to spend the day!

Thank you for your thoughtful comment - yes, it is my birthday this week and my son is living in Italy working for the U.S. Defense...he sends me nice gifts.

I did do a good job raising him..although...during the teenage years it was out with the jury.

Have a wonderful day!!

Such large crowds are daunting for me, but I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall. I'm so glad that you went and enjoyed the blessings.
