Tonight I got to teach someone about Twitter for a school assignment, and I left so pumped! Twitter is not even my favorite social media platform, but I honestly loved every moment! We met for an hour and I was able to ask a lot of questions that made her think, show her examples of others in her industry, and give her a crash course of the ends and outs of Twitter! I also showed her Periscope because I think it could be a useful tool for what she does (and Twitter owns them) she left excited and had fun!
After the meeting was over, I could feel the joy rushing through my body and I couldn’t stop smiling, I told William that I need to figure out a way to do what I just did full time because I absolutely loved it! I forgot how good it felt to do something I loved doing! Tonight was definitely a rekindling of a fire that was put out and I’m excited!
I want to go into organizations and teach them how to use social media for their benefit.
If I write it out it has to come to pass, right?!
So consider this my faith goal, and the beginning of something to come!
I know I already made a new year resolution or two, which I have begun putting into action but I saw a few posts already this year incorporating one word “themes” for the year and I couldn’t help but think about what one word my year would encompass. That word for me is ACTION! There are so many things that I have wanted to do (like play the piano) that I have started to do (I’ve already had two lessons where I’ve learned three scales along with the proper technique). I have also wanted to coach volleyball or at least have the opportunity to coach and I finally get to. I met with a friend who coaches/directs a volleyball club in town and I did all my paperwork and am a sub/ assistant coach and I absolutely love it!! There are things that I have learned over the years mainly the last two years that I have not really put into action but I just know that this year I will use all the spiritually things The Lord has taught me. I am a willing vessel that has been equipped and now it’s my turn to share what I’ve learned with others! Not to mention that I will be going on a mission trip to some place other than Bolivia, South America which is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I think with action comes confidence and boldness and I am ready!! Not to mention during my corporate time of fasting a prayer last week I came out of that week knowing that this would be a year of action and then my pastor preached an amazing word on doing what God has called us to do this year! It truly was phenomenal. So with all of these outside confirmations to what God spoke to me about in my quiet time I am ready to do more this year!! Have you thought about your one word “theme” for the new year? If so, what is it?
It’s been awhile, and I’ve missed you, I’ve missed telling you all about the great things that have occurred in my life over the past few weeks. So here I am to tell you that my life has been transformed! I went to the Every Nation School Of Empowerment which is a wonderful three week course that teaches you and equips you to be aware of and use all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. It is very much biblically based and we focused on all of the gifts mentioned in both Ephesians 4 and 1 Corinthians 12! I highly recommend this class to anyone who has ever wanted more of the Holy Spirit or wanted to know more about what the Bible says on the gifts and offices of the Spirit!
While there I learned so much concerning the gifts of the Spirit things that I read and then later put into action during different activation sessions. We went out to local North Carolina universities and ministered to people there. I met some wonderful like-minded brothers and sisters in Christ from all over the world and I know that we will always stay in touch. Towards the end of our time there we were taken through a smaller ministry time to get rid of some of our ungodly beliefs and to replace them with Godly ones. It was truly incredible! The method they used was a combination of things they came up with as well as some of the methods that the program Restoring the Foundations uses! Talk about life changing!
I arrived at the school so bound up and afraid but I left free and full of faith, and overwhelming joy! I know a bit more of what God has for me and I am ready to stop hiding and walk in the boldness and the confidence that God has placed inside of me! There are things I am meant to do and I am ready to go and do them! I am ready to go out into all nations and preach the gospel and tell everyone that I come in contact with about Jesus… I am ready to put into action all the great and wonderfully biblical things I learned while at the school into action! My life has been transformed and I want to share it with everyone!! God is good and His Love IS real and I want to tell you all about it!
Today was a day of encouragement! All around me was encouragement at the right time in the right amount. Today I got to teach (I use to want to be a teacher and I absolutely love teaching people new things) and I haven’t found the joy in that for some time… (don’t worry William I’m not going to change my major again), but it’s always nice when you teach something; anything and people actually get it.
This morning I asked the children from Children’s Church if they remembered what we did last week, kind of as a review and they actually remembered!! I was so overjoyed all I could do was smile!!! and this afternoon I taught a friend how to swim!!! I am so excited I felt like a proud mom watching him swim those first few feet…. and then he got better and better and is now comfortable in the water!!!
I guess what I am trying to convey to you all is to be encouraged. If you have a talent or skill know that you will be put in positions to use them and use them you shall!! Only you can do things the way you do them and the way you do them is exactly how someone will learn. So be encouraged and keep doing what God has called you to do, no matter what it is, dancing, singing, teaching, you get my point… GO FOR IT be confident so that God may get the glory!! AMEN!!
