Trusting God and Doing Good

Last weekend I had the opportunity to see Joyce Meyer speak at a conference in Long Beach, California.  Now, if you don’t know who Joyce Meyer is, Google or YouTube her.  She is amazing and hilarious to boot!

Sadly, one of the sessions was cancelled due to a power outage in the area, but that did not stop the rest of the conference from happening the rest of the weekend.  Her topic for the conference that weekend was about trusting God and doing good.

I think this is a very hard lesson to remember for anybody, but also very important. I think it is so easy to see how hard life can get and easily forget that God has it in the bag.

I think God wanted to see if I was really listening this past weekend because I was constantly tested with things that were going on in my life.  It was like the inner voice in my head kept saying “Trust Me and keep doing good.”

She also said something about healing that really struck a chord with me and something that I completely agree with.  Joyce said that healing is a process.  Now, if you have kept up with my blog you know my thoughts and feelings on healing and being healed.  She went on to say that many Christians think and believe that being healed should be a instantaneous thing and they end up not enjoying the process and journey that comes with it, which in turn brings bitterness, anger and hatred in my opinion.  If I were to use praise hands, it would have been during this segment of the conference.

Going into this next week, I feel more encouraged and positive that things will turn out for the best, I just got to keep pushing forward and doing good.

  2. This is the first time I’ve read your blog – and I enjoyed it immensely! I am a great Joyce Meyer fan, watching her show Monday – Friday mornings. She has pointed me in a good direction, and she speaks to my heart. I truly believe that God speaks through her.
