I heard it said many times during conference weekend that God was “pulling on the strings” of heart as we gathered together to learn, reflect, celebrate, and be challenged on the divine calling on our lives.
You see, the beauty and power of conference for me is that drawing together of God’s orchestra, and as only the divine composer can do, begins to write a new symphony. A new piece that draws us in to wonder, amazement, and holiness. The piece has moments of deep tension, dissonance, and heartbreak but also moments of overflowing joy, gratitude, and reconciliation.
Imagine if you could, your part beginning as a solo, then a duo, a trio, a quartet, and quintet and eventually a large, full, powerful orchestra in the hands of the maestro Jesus; moving and pulling out the sound and unity of many individuals sounding in harmony.
This is conference. This is a new piece. This is holy ground.
It’s hard to explain how so many people from such diverse backgrounds could be drawn in by a common purpose but somehow God has ordained it, orchestrated it, and empowered it to be the hope of the world.
I fully believe that as our loving father looks over at us, especially when we are together, He exclaims, “It is very good!”
