It was here that I came to the conclusion that my feeble body wasn't made for worship and God's presence to this extent. With a croaking voice, trembling lifted hands and weak knees, I belted out a chorus of heavenly melodies whilst mascara tears stained my cheeks. You know that verse that says "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak"? Yeah that was definitely the case here. One highlight of this time was when Bobbie asked us all to hold our phones in our hands to pray for the people around the world, and all of a sudden, people started putting their phone lights on. It was such a sight to behold!!! That top image that you see, the one that says "you are the light of the world" doesn't do justice to how incredible it all actually looked. It took one woman to light up her phone and soon thousands of us followed. It was a real testament to how we as Christian women ought to be in the world; shining our light individually, but lighting up a dark world collectively.
It's monday as I'm writing this, and I'm having to scramble through my camera for some decent pictures from the Colour Conference 2016 to illustrate this blogpost. As I'm desperately trying to edit and put together these crappy photos, I realise that this is good. I mean that it's a good thing that I was so lost in the moment that thinking about something as trivial as picking up my camera at every turn was last on my mind. For three days, my hours were filled with preaching and sermons from speakers like Christine Caine, Holly Wagner, Bobbie Houston and loads more. I along with almost 9000 women filled the Wembley Arena for the annual Colour Conference, initiated by Bobbie Houston, my senior pastor. Words forsake me when I try to explain events like this. It felt like a "waiting to exhale" moment. From crying to laughing to talking about all things womanhood, I loved and cherished every second of it. To put it very annoyingly, you had to be there.
