Wow... I am just soooo excited. We have a divine appointment with our heavnely Father on July 13th & 14th. A time set aside away from distractions, cares and worries, a for us to come and renew, refresh and revisit. Wow... Jesus I am so excited.
It has been almost eight years since I had my transformation through and encounter in Asheboro, NC. I remember many details and many emotions. Seemed like yesterday. Many things ran through my mind. "Would my intense fear of death leave?" Would panic disorders, depression, and my secret bondages finally leave me at peace? I came with guards up, I came with preconceptions, and my own plan of escape, but I also came with a thread of expectation. Just a threat of hope and expectantcy that this would be my time. My time when God would call me out from the crowd and wrap me in his loving arms and say..." I love you Sabrina!"
It was beyond my expectation... all I had was a thread and he met me where I was. I found my freedom, I found my deliverance and I found my peace. Keep your expectation. When you lose your expectation, you lose sight of your purpose. So expect a miracle, expect a power encounter, exepect expect expect.
"By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." It is all about love people! Has the church forgotten this quote from the King himself. Love is the basic structure for seeing the miracles, signs and wonders as well as establishing HIS kingdom. Love draws fellowship, which breeds unity, which breeds HIS presence, which once insde we learn kingdom living which house the wonders of HIS majesty! The world is watching us... by this will ALL men know. It is attractive. It creates an innate craving that all secretly desire. I challenge you! LOVE each other. Show it... breathe it...be it!
I believe that as we begin to step outside of church, outside of programs and fluff, we are then able to see a better view of Jesus. Sometimes we are so busy and caught up with the instituional western church protocol that we miss HIM. Let's try to look outside this week. Get out of the box and go forth and share HIS good news with someone. Let's not just talk love...but let's do love.
