Just goes to show when it is your time to stand before GOD's people and be in the presence of great men and women who carry the gospel of Jesus Christ, nothing will prevent it. Coming up to the service, I kept pondering why I was chosen. It wasn’t that I can’t read scripture. It wasn’t that I felt I had arrived and been invited into what some people think is the “it” club in the church. I’m a PK (preacher’s kid) so I was born into it and decided to refuse my card. I’d rather serve and work for every success.
And then it dawned on me. Pastor chose people he felt would support his new position and the new journey the church is headed on as we continue to serve the community. For those who really know me, you know I love serving especially children. This generation is certainly in need of role models, prayer warriors and committed individuals & groups who won’t quit and give up on them.
The evening after the service I was showering and I begin to weep. I was just so full of joy. The ceremony was beautiful. I know saying it was beautiful seems minor but I've been in church all my life, seen weddings, funerals, revivals, miracles and met famous singers, musicians but nothing measured up to the presence of GOD in Winners Church that night. It was as if all of heaven was rejoicing with us as the events unfolded. It was a perfect day in the Kingdom.
I cried tears of joy because GOD allowed me to be in a place, position that I never dreamed about and I’m a DREAMER! I concluded that moment was just a glimpse of the plans GOD has for me (Jeremiah 29:11). Despite leaving my job this year feeling like I had been kicked in the gut and demoted to nothing, it came down to my identity being living as GOD’s girl. That in itself is the most glam life I can every live!
I don't want you to stop by here and see me all dolled up and click through my post thinking clothes are as deep as I get. When you build a career and you start to excel and the wind is snatched out of your sail, you can tumble if you don't know who you are, what is your purpose, what is/are your gift(s) and consult GOD as your journey. The facts point to one conclusion. GOD has chosen me to bless me and you too if you are ready.
Are you ready?
