The other week I went to a church event that they have every Saturday night. I had been going through a lot of issues that I was done dealing with. I had some people pray for me and they told me that I am a person that is full of joy. To be honest, I hadn’t been living like that for a very long time. It felt like a wake up call for me, like it was saying, “Katy you are capable of being this way, choose differently.”
See, this is what I have learned. It is a choice. Choose to be happy, and I can promise you that if do that, you will see your world change for the better.
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.
