I started the day by heading out to our friend’s church to hear him preach. What a message he gave! He preached on Faith and how we should have the same faith and watch God work in our lives like the faithful servants in the Bible. Pastor Rob Mohr from Lakeview Church of God is a man filled with the Holy Spirit. He preaches the word of God with the Holy Spirit as his guide. I am thankful God put this man in my life. One thing I took away from this service is the power of God on this place. A church who takes the phrase “church family” to heart as they closed the service by standing in a circle around the sanctuary holding hands for the final prayer. Yes! A truly amazing way to start my Birthday!
That afternoon, I was asked to preach at The Windmill Center in Sandy Lake. Over the last couple of years, this little place has become very special to my family. God has created some amazing friendships and it was an honor to spend my birthday with all of them doing what I love to do and that’s share the talent God has given me as a speaker.
Before I stood to preach, they asked me to come forward for a very special ceremony. Pastor Gary Bennefield, his brother Pastor Bill Bennefield, their father Pastor Bill Bennefield Senior, Pastor Veda Holland, and others stood around me has Pastor Bill handed me my Ordination License. Pastor Veda Holland prayed the most powerful prayer of anointing on me and you could feel the Holy Spirit’s presence.
This calling to preach on my life has been solidified over the last several years with every opportunity I have had to preach and see lives changed. Having this ordination is saying to the world that God has placed this calling on my life and I am willing to do whatever and go wherever He calls me to go. I have made a personal commitment to him to stay true to the Word of God and to preach only with the authority of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you, God, for such an amazing birthday! Thank you for your love! Thank you for this calling on my life! You are my God! I am your vessel! Use my servant heart in a way that brings you all the honor and glory! In your precious name I pray! Amen.
