I was so blessed by being able to attend the Joyce Meyer Conference this weekend at the Phoenix First Assembly Church. She is such a positive speaker, a little in your face, but in a good way! This weekend's topic was how we get "offended" so easily. How when we hold on to something even if we know we are right, if we choose not to let it go the only person we are hurting is ourselves! Do I want joy in my life or do I want to be angry at everyone who offends me?
I learned that I have been living most of my life offended by so many people, holding on to stuff that is only hindering me from growing in my walk with Christ. How many times have I offended God, and he has and continues to forgive me. Far too many times for me to count, so what gives me the right to be so angry at everyone? I know this will not be an overnight change for me, but I want to strive to live a more joyful God filled life that honors God.
Just as my good friend Iris told me once you have to take baby steps, it will not happen overnight. Good thing is I don't have to do it alone! I can call on God to fill me with his Spirit, and to make the impossible possible for me. I am not alone, and that is what I need to remember next time someone cuts me off when I am driving, or looks at me wrong. I am not perfect and never will be perfect, and that is okay. I have comfort in knowing that I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens, what more could I ask for!
Here is the outfit I wore to the conference. I don't know about you but yellow makes me happy. I found this yellow dress that looks like it may be from the 80's found it at the thrift store. It is really comfortable, it is cotton dress with really cute buttons all along the back side. The dress alone is really plain and could be a little boring, good thing for blazers and accessories you can do so much with a simple dress!
Justfab's Bombshell is such an amazing bag, I loved it so much ordered it in the nude and the black. What's not to love about the bag, the cute bow,studs, and it's the perfect size for any on the go mommy. You can just throw everything you need in there and still have room for more!
I purchased these heels from the Shoedazzle sale and they are extremely comfortable! These are also available in black, I added them to my wish list because I know I will get so much use out of these cute and comfy shoes!
