    Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more. He said to them, "Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: for behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and behold, your sheaves came around, and bowed...

The Game Changer

  • But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward mankind appeared, not by works of righteousness which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior; that being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7 WEB.

    When I was about twenty years old, I was playing music at a party one night. When suddenly, the Holy Spirit came on me with such a loving presence. What happened next was a bit strange. I had a third-person vision of myself where He let me see my life through His eyes in an instant. Then He whispered, "Do you want this, or what I have for you?"

    It instantly changed my view on life, my desires, and my plans. I didn't really know who He was, but I wanted to learn. At the end of the set, I placed my bass in the case, said goodbye to the band, went home and into the bedroom, and I made things right with God that night. The next morning, I got up and went to church. Soon I was baptized. I started Bible college, got my degree, and He began preparing me for the ministry we do today. That was certainly not my game plan at the time.

    I grew up very legalistic and viewed God as a mean super-being waiting for me to make a mistake. After a while, I learned that I was not very good at keeping rules. And by now, He was probably really angry at me. So I avoided Him and the places that I thought He would be.

    That night the loving-kindness of the Lord chased me down, and I have never viewed God the same again. He will find you. No one had to preach to me, for He drew me like a magnet. God is not mad nor mean. Even when we ignore Him and go our own way, He loves us more than we can comprehend.

    Wherever you stand with God today, know that He is pursuing you. He wants a deeper relationship with you, and He will never give up the pursuit. You can try to avoid Him, but He will come to where you are. He is the game-changer.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please send Your Holy Spirit into my life and change things as you see fit. I know that You have the best plans for me, and I surrender to You today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

Yes, He is the Game Changer...I went to a Sunday Night Service where 7 to 8 area churches joinened together In Praise and Worship, to Thank God for His Son Jesus for His Sacrifice for us Also we gave Thanks for the millions of Veterans that gave their lives for our freedoms all across the world. You know if These People did this So we could Praise and Give Thanks to Our Lord and Saviour...There are many more alive that are in the Armed Forces that we need to honor for their service, plus first responders, fire dept. and those that put themselves in harm's way like our police force. May we Love like Christ Loves. Also we need to live the unloveable people and not judge them. Because God loves them too, even our enemies...

Love You All,

Sharon
