Hitting A Wall

Hitting A Wall

Several years ago, I decided to hire a voice coach. I only went once, because I was so discouraged after my first lesson. I walked in thinking I was “the man”, but by the time she was finished with me, I was frustrated. I convinced myself it wasn’t worth going because the drive was too long, but I have to admit I was also nervous, perhaps because I deep down, I was convinced I wouldn’t be good enough. In my first session, the song we worked on was Kyrie by Mr. Mister. I could hit all of the notes except for one. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t hit the note. We continued that first session by doing additional exercises where she would ask me to test my range, and would push me beyond what I was able to do. I grew frustrated. What I didn’t realize was that while I was hitting a wall, she was trying to push me beyond it. The children of Egypt experienced the same thing, whether it was facing the Red Sea or coming out of the desert facing the Jordan. In both circumstance, they “hit a wall”. A wall of water that stood between where they were and where they needed to go. A wall that confined them from their destiny. God creates each and every one of us with so much potential, so many different talents and abilities, but many of us have buried this potential beneath a pile of doubt and worldly lies. We hit the walls life slams down before us, unconvinced they can be broken down....
Host the Presence of God

Host the Presence of God

There is a scripture that I see all of the time and yet, it wasn’t until recently that God revealed to me a deeper revelation. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. – Ezekiel 36:27 You see, God has put His Spirit WITHIN us! That’s powerful, that means we are truly hosting the presence of God What would happen to your life and the lives of those around us if we were more aware of the revelation knowledge that we are hosts to the presence of God? It would be like enjoying His voice, His goodness, and His mercy every moment of your life! It didn’t seem like a life like this is possible; well, until I met my new friends, John and Heidi White! You see, John and Heidi are the executive producers of a groundbreaking, audio-visual experience called The Presence. They have made it their life’s work to teach and train people how to host the presence of God. The Presence is a breathtaking presentation full of music, insight, and revelation designed to equip sons and daughters to experience God’s presence all of the time by highlighting men and women — all around the world and from all walks of life — who are living daily in His Presence and experiencing the wonder and friendship of the Holy Spirit. Everyone can have a deeper and more abiding relationship with God. His presence is what helps us through the trials, struggles, and storms of life so we can have the joy and peace...
