WOW!!! WCC was soooo awesome!!! I really went to conference this years seeking God for some answers to questions in my life and it felt like each message preach was an answer to my questions. I think my all time FAVORITE message preached was Bro. Joel Booker's...about fishing...oh man that message was sooooo AWESOME!!! I could totally relate...especially about WELL you guys just GOTTA hear it for yourself...BUT i'll try and sum it up...Bro. Booker told this story about how him and some buddies were out deep sea fishing, and how he wasn't really all that into it and he was feelin tired and he was gettin sea sick, and he was TRYING to not to throw up, but when he saw his friend's lunch floating passed him, his lunch joined his friend's in the sea, and oh man he was soooo sick and he JUST WANTED TO GO HOME...LOL...and all of the sudden he got a tug on his line and the crew members on the boat told him that he had a fish and all of the sudden he said he started feeling a little bit better, cuz even though he didn't really like fishing...HE DID LIKE CATCHING THE FISH...
and he said as he began reeling in that fish, he began to get more and more and more excited...and he said that he began to realize it was no ordinary little fish...it was a 200 pound, 6ft halibut fish and he said when it was all over and he caught that fish he really didn't care or even remember being sick...it just felt awesome to have caught that fish..and then he just related it to how its the SAME way being a fisher of men...you can grow so weary in your spirit, and he talked about the snotty nosed bus kids that break everything and drive everyone CRAZY...lol...and OH man I could sooo RELATE!!! I mean i've been peed on and EVERYTHING before!!! HAHA! ANd sometimes the smell...oh LORD HELP ME...BUT man...when you see one of those kids crying at the alter, getting the Holy Ghost...THAT IS LIKE THE AWESOMEST FEELING IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!! AND Bro. Joel Booker is RIGHT...its ADDICTING!!!!
Well, that was my FAVORITE message...BUT then when Bro. Morton preached his message it was just like WOWOWOWOW!!! He talked about the message being passed from generation to generation...but he just talked about like EVERYTHING!!! He talked about holiness standards and oh man it was SOOOO AWESOME!!! I was like man I GOTTA go through my hair accessories again...I gotta return an accessory too!!! I mean after being in the Apostolic Standards class at Bible college last semester, I had gotten rid of all my sparkly, glitterly, look-at-me hair accessories...BUT then RIGHT before WCC I bought this like totally, like sparkly, sequin thing and I was like OKAAAY i'm only gonna wear it ONE TIME...LOL...AND I had really planned that, it was for New Year's Eve in Times Square...I was like...I gotta have some bling-bling! for that!!! HAHAHA!!! But, yeah, i'm gonna return it!!! I'm NOT gonna deny that I'm kinda like really drawn to that stuff... but you know what, I DON'T NEED IT!!! I got the Joy of the Holy Ghost sparkling outta me and thats waaaaay better!!! :)
Anywayz, more than Bro. Morton talking about holiness and doctrinal standard's and LOVING this Apostolic, Penecostal message, he talked about not worrying about when the older generation passes is on. He talked about how there are still men of God that are going to hold true to this message, that aren't going to try and change the standards and Oh man it was just soooooooo GOOD!!! He summed it all up by just saying over and over again, "Everythings gonna be alright! Everythings gonna be alright!" And you know...I just REALLY, REALLY, REALLY needed to hear that!!!
Next I just wanna say THANKS to all the blog readers that came over and said hi to me!!! Some pretty awesome people out there and you all were an encouragment to me!!! Also, SPECIAL THANKS to Sis. Lugo/Loogo (sp?) from Bro. Morton's church, who was sooo kind to me and told me that she has been praying for a husband for me...I was like WOW!!! This sister doesn't even know me and has NEVER met me, BUT she is praying for me...I was OMW!!! That is soooo COOL! And that was the last thought I had when I went to sleep that night, "I might not be meeting any guys while i'm here, BUT... Sis. Lugo is praying for a husband for me!!!" AND I am soooo glad I got to meet so many people finally...
