I am sitting here sitting in Maryland and I realized that as a new corner is turned in the season in time another one changes in the spirit. God has been so very very good to me ( apologies to Garret Morris and SNL) but he has and I am blown away how he can love one such as I. As I get older and I see life changing, I see that although I have come so far from where I was in June of 1997 I still have so far to go.
I can remember like it was yesterday, May 1997 I was lost, hurting done with church and the hypocrisy that I saw in it. Then God met me and nothing was the same. I felt the presence of God like I had never done before. I call myself a spiritual schizophrenic because I fight for what I don’t need and don’t know what I do need. I asked God for power to spread his word, anointing to take his word to the earth. I felt so new life never before. I so long for that again! So much has happened in the last 18 years. I am now retired from the military, married and getting ready to leave my dream job.
God I meant it when I said here I am Lord send me. And he did, I went to Japan, Austrailia, Iraq, UAE, Dubie, PI, Thailand, Maryland, Hawaii and now Texas. Just when you think you know what God wants he throws a kink in it. God told me to pack and move to Hawaii, one month after I got married. That was a fun and painful assignment. I learned so much about God and how to sit and listen and when to move and take authority. Then a new season.
I am looking forward to the new year and new challenges ahead. New and old friends. As I look ahead to my imminent move to Texas I anticipate what God will have me do. Start a church? Sit and just relax? All ahead Flank 3!
