Ladies Conference

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Joshua 1:8

The past few weeks have been a bit stressful and I am so thankful I was able to attend the Ladies Conference at Milligan College, a local Christian College just a few minutes away from our home.
The speaker was Alicia Williamson Garcia!! Awesome speaker and woman of God! She truly has the hand of God on her life as she speaks to women all across the country! If you would like to read more about her you can check it out here at Women in Worship.
I'm telling you ladies, if Alicia is anywhere near the area where you can see her you simply must!! You will truly be blessed!
The theme was, Becoming A Woman of Worship.
I must share some of my notes from today.

Worship - Bow down; comes from the word worthship, meaning to ascribe to worthiness to give honor where honor is due.
Alicia's DESCRIPTION of WORSHIP - a response to truth, NOT a reaction to circumstances. This is truly an awesome statement! I needed this Word today!

To worship we must KNOW the WORD of GOD and the GOD of the WORD!! Read that again slooooowly now!

A reaction implies a negative outburst.
A response is an informed reply.

Prayer: Jesus, YOU are my firm foundation, I put my trust in your Holy Word.

What is righteousness? Loving what God loves, like He loves it, and hating what God hates, like He hates it.

God is TRUTH! Look these verses up and see the truth.

Isaiah 65:16 - God of truth
1 Samuel 15:29 - impossible for God to lie
James 1: 17-18 - every perfect gift is from above, and comes from the Father

Thank you Father for this special day. My heart was truly blessed as I continue to grow in your Word.
