DAUGHTERS CONFERENCE 2018
Wow! What a beautiful, Holy-Spirit breathed weekend we had at Daughters Conference! I'm in awe of all God did in us and have such anticipation for all He will do though us this year.
There was such a strong tangible sense of God's healing power in the room, and I know many women experienced personal breakthrough as Jenny Gilpin shared her story and prophesied over us so specifically. I'm inspired by Jenny's story and her life at large, a woman who came from incredibly humble beginnings, who has stepped out without waiting for perfect circumstances and has seen God use her mightily for His glory. I know many women were encouraged to "just start" with where they are at and watch God move! It was such a treat to hear from Mia and Joren and have a rather large Dinner Party 'living room chat' with them! They let us into their story once again and gave such wise relationship advice!
I feel such a conviction in my spirit for all God wants to do in and through Daughters—we are living in a time when it is imperative that the women of the global church stand up and don't shrink back. Hebrews 10:39 says, "But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved." If we shrink back in the hour that God is calling us forward, that will only lead to destruction. But if we stand up in faith, that leads to the building of God's Kingdom, the redemption of our city, God's love flooding into the lives of the people of NYC and beyond. There is a generation to come that needs us to stand in faith in the trial we are facing, in the time we are living. I for one, have more conviction that ever before on the importance of women rising in faith.
So here's to bold faith, faith-filled prayer, dedication to the Word of God and fast obedience to the whisper of the Spirit! For it is these mighty weapons that when yielded, defeat any opposition that seeks to kill, steal and destroy humanity.
I love you and I'm so proud of each of you for your faith, your strength in adversity and your passion for God and His plan!
