12 Days until the invitations start arriving!
I am so excited about the launch of all things Colour for 2012 that I can hardly contain myself.
I have been privileged to be a part of this journey since the inception and have personally witnessed what was once a dream become a reality. A global Sisterhood has arisen across the earth poised, positioned and prepared to do good works in a manner and of such, depth, reach and magnitude that has not been witnessed before.
The compass, unity and connection for this movement has and always will be the gathering that is known as Colour.
To endeavour to capture all that this conference is in a simple blog would be futile because it is so much more than a conference. I consider it to be a gathering, strengthening, equipping and mobilizing of the daughters of the King like no other.
When the walls of Jericho seemed impenetrable the Lord gave Joshua a unique, distinct and unusual battle plan. He told Him to gather the children of Israel together and to begin to march around the walls for 6 days and on the 7th day they were to march around the walls 6 times and then on the next lap around they were to make a unified, strategic, synchronized shout. Only then would what was once an impossible obstacle simply come tumbling down and they would take the city.
In our world today there are many thick seemingly impenetrable walls of injustice that need to fall down. There is no natural way for this to happen, it requires a supernatural battle plan and I believe that Colour is an integral part of that plan.
Each year that we gather can be likened to taking another lap around another wall of injustice wether that is a personal, local or global one. With each lap another crack appears in the wall and over the process of time walls do come tumbling down.
I have a profound sense that Colour 2012...or Lap 17 as I like to refer to it...will be a profoundly significant one in more ways than any of us could even begin to imagine.
The sequence of divinely orchestrated events leading up to this Colour would astound even the greatest sceptic. It has been and always will be a profoundly miraculous adventure, one that you do not want to miss.
We get the opportunity to be a part of making history- I really genuinely, sincerely and totally believe that.
If like me you have been a part of the miracle thus far don‚t lose momentum, strength or courage, join us for the next lap, who knows what God is about to do. If you have missed a few laps and have not been for a while, come and joint us again. It will be easy to fall into step, join the rhythm and pattern of the symphony that God is writing called Colour. If you have not yet been a part, then I, together with multiplied thousands of other women await your presence, it won‚t be the same without you. Trust me when I say that Lap 17 is not one to be missed.
