Walking On Water Moments #wowmoments

Reactions: 
I heard one time that “Movements not Moments Change the world.”   Yet on a personal level, I think it’s good to have a series of moments in your life that change you.  These moments can inspire a movement within you.  I like to call these moments, W.O.W. moments or as soon you will find that they are Walking On Water moments.


A W.O.W. movement is really a time when something about God can literally make you go “WOW!!!!”  The W.O.W. Moment helps us to see the Awesomeness of God and declare our faith.  It is these series of W.O.W. moments that can be strung together to move us closer to Jesus and stronger in our faith.

There is a particular lady in my church, let us call her Sis. Sue.  Now Sister Sue is kind of different.  You see, the normal thing in church is to say “AMEN” when there is something that is said by the communicator or preacher for the day, that you agree with.


But not Sister Sue.  She loves the word, “WOW!”


I think Sister Sue was like Peter and the other disciples who were on the boat when Jesus came walking on the sea. Imagine.... its dark and you see someone walking on the water coming towards you in the boat.  This probably would have spooked me out!


But nevertheless, it is at this Walking On Water Moment or W.O.W. Moment, that we see Peter’s faith increase.  When Peter saw Jesus walking on the water, I am sure He was like “WOOOOOW, Jesus ME! Me! Me!  I want to do that too…”  Then Jesus called Peter out and Peter sprung out the boat to go to Jesus but begun to sink when he got afraid.   Jesus then caught his hand and brought him up.  Jesus saved Peter and removed his fear at that instant.  Then, Peter was able to Walk On Water.

Peter had many other W.O.W. Moments with Jesus.  It was at each of those moments that his faith continued to increase.  Though we have stories of where Peter did not measure up or lost faith, in the end I would dare say that It was the series of W.O.W. moments that Peter had with Jesus that ultimate “turned up” his faith and helped him to continue a movement that still is changing the world. 

Have you had any WOW Moments with Jesus lately?  Let these W.O.W. moments increase your faith and by God’s grace you can Walk On Water too.  Then you can be like Sis. Sue and only think left to say is “WOOOOOOW!”

Happy New Year Everybody!!! Rebooting

Reactions: 


Not much of a person to celebrate New Years that others would but I love the aspect of the "newness" that the New Calender brings.  So kind of like a Reset button or Rebooting of the program.

So I am Rebooting!

I am The Masterpiece

Reactions: 
Have you ever wondered what's in a name?

Why name a brand of tennis shoes NIKE?

Why name really expensive computers Apple? (Not a Mac)

Why name a church a very particular very specific name? (Unless you are going for every holy sounding name i.e. The Holy Come as thou art redeemed kingdom ministry church)

The thing is that there is alot in a name. 
NIKE means... Victory (greek)...do I need to say any more, "just do it"

APPLE went with this name because...Steve Jobs said on naming Apple, he thought it was 
fun, spirited, and not intimidating“.  This is really good seeing that at the time, computers were seen as very intimidating machinery. Now Apple is still encouraging us to "Think Differently".

On the naming of Apple, he said he was “on one of my fruitarian diets.” He said he had just come back from an apple farm, and thought the name sounded “fun, spirited and not intimidating.”

This weekend, my Pastor, spoke on the topic "It's in me, It's always been in me" as we kicked off our Christmas series, "FINISH IT...A Turbo Christmas story".  In the sermon he is using the movie, Turbo as a spring board for biblical truths.  Well there was a part of the message where he talked about Names and kind of gives evidence of who we are as a person.  One example that he uses was God changing the name of Jacob which meant Usurper...To that of Isra-EL meaning God who prevails.  Pastor then challenged the congregation to consider what we called ourselves because what we call ourselves has a lot to do with our destiny. Hmmmm....

When we were little, my mom gave my brother, sister and I special names.  These were not just our government names but she gave us other names that she hoped would speak into our character.  

The name she gave me was "The Masterpiece of God's Creation."

I remember often thinking, "Really? Me?  The Masterpiece of what? The whole creation?....That is a tall order."  I also thought it was kind of arrogant if I go around calling myself the Masterpiece of God's Creation.  Yet, little did I know that this was not meant to be a badge that was worn overtly with a pompous attitude.  Rather, in her own special way my mother wanted me to know that I was special in God's eyes and God took the time to fashion me in God's way.  Therefore,  I had to live in such a way to show God off and be The Masterpiece that God created me to be.  It's in me, It's always been in me! 

Therefore, as of today.  (Well yesterday) I have a renewed vigor and drive and shall embrace who I am.  

I am The Masterpiece of God's Creation.

Its on, AGAIN....

Reactions: 
So I woke this morning realizing that I needed to do something.  Really I had to make a change. Again?  Yes, Again.  I have been down this road before and tried to change but I haven't been able to get over that hump.

Well I say something yesterday from Jemi Health and Wellness' Facebook page that changed my perspective.

I don't know where they got it from but I thought it was phenomenal.  I thought this was very interesting when you really think about it.  So I am on board with this.  Therefore,  I am going at it again.

Let's go!!!
