This past weekend was Hillsong Colour Conference here in NYC—it’s a global gathering of women that meets annually all over the world. Colour is always my very favorite because the heart of it is to champion, empower, equip and value women. I mean, what’s not to love, right?!⠀⠀⠀
On my way to the conference venue I got a glimpse of this stunning mosaic water tower while crossing the Brooklyn Bridge (Tom Fruin: WATERTOWER). The tower immediately caught both my eyes and my heart. This beautiful piece of art made up of different pieces of colorful glass reminded me a lot of what God can do with our broken lives. It reminded me of how he is constantly making beautiful all the broken pieces of my own life. It was also a picture of the gathering of women that I was about to walk into: a colorful room of women from all different backgrounds, ages, sizes, ethnicities, nationalities and socioeconomic backgrounds, coming together like a beautiful mosaic and in so many ways forming a metaphorical water tower. Gathered together catching everything that God would pour out on us that weekend…catching it and being filled so that we can in turn pour out into our own unique worlds.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t cry a teensy bit as my heart absolutely leapt in anticipation of all that would take place over the weekend—it felt like actual summersaults in my chest! I love that God tugs at our hearts that way and that he meets our anticipation and exceeds our expectations. I look forward to sharing some of what God did in my own life this past weekend with you all soon.
