It was wonderful... as usual... how could it not be considering you get to hear a prophet of God speak?
Conference always gives me a spiritual infusion and helps me re-evaluate my life and my relationship with God. I am so grateful for it. I am also grateful that this Conference I got several new insights that I am very excited to share! But first I have to share an experience I had last week at the General Relief Society Broadcast that just reinforced my testimony of God's great love for women.
Last week I wrote about Eve and her faithful daughters and I remarked that I would LOVE to get a glimpse of these women. Well, God answers the prayers of our heart because during the broadcast I got that glimpse.
Imagine this place
Conference Center for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints, filled to capacity with over 21,333 righteous women (and millions more in meeting houses around the world) standing and singing "How Firm a Foundation". Especially imagine them singing at the top of their lungs with tears streaming down their face (I'm sure I wasn't the only one crying) the last verse of the song,
The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose,
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes:
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I'll never - no, never, no, never forsake!
I wish that they posted the musical numbers from Conference online, but they don't. But I did find this clip from a previous General Conference, not a Relief Society meeting, of "How Firm a Foundation" being sung by the congregation. It is powerful and if you haven't ever heard this hymn sung before I HIGHLY recommend watching this clip.
