A Message From the Past

The below email was originally written exactly one month before the car accident that changed my life in 2012. Thank you to Barbara Stevens for sending it back to me. It was a powerful reminder for me. Please take a moment and read it below: Originally written on August 15, 2012…

Thank the Lord for His goodness and mercy that has been extended to all of us. I am excited about our future together in partnership at HWWC, ARE YOU? I sure hope so. So many times I find myself dreaming of what I believe we can, could and should be as a church to our community, surrounding area and also to each other. I know that God has greater things for us to be a part of. Have you ever said or heard someone say…..”could you imagine if”….We say this a lot as it relates to the Kingdom of God, COULD YOU IMAGINE IF or WHEN, and it becomes in many circles the talking point of future potential. I submit that this is a good thing to dream and consider however, I also believe that there must come a time when the CAN YOU IMAGINE, becomes a NOW reality in our lives. I will give you some key examples below of things I have heard in the Kingdom of God and I pray you grasp the power behind this email today……

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone would come together and pray……….

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone came to service ready to worship and went after God……

Could you imagine what would happen if every leader was as committed as they talk about…..

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone got involved somewhere……

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone tithed and gave according to God’s Word….

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone witnessed to others and stood for righteousness at all times….

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone invited someone to church and followed through with such invitations…..

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone read their bible and lived it in the earth…..

Could you imagine what would happen if husbands and wives lived as the scriptures declared for them to live towards each other…

Could you imagine what would happen if our children were admonished according to scripture and not the “political” ways in which many have fallen….

Could you imagine what would happen if the church spoke up in society instead of cowering behind their four walls….

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone layed aside excuses for behavior and decisions and were accountable…

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone understood the power of their life and testimony and then shared the same…..

Could you imagine what would happen if everyone in the Kingdom had church attendance as a higher priority than it is right now….

There are many others that I could write and no doubt you have thought of others as you have read this, but I want to leave you with one more that I pray speaks to each of us…

ARE YOU READY FOR IT?
Could you imagine what would happen if WE as believers stopped “imagining” and started becoming all these things and more…..NOW THAT IS A WOW MOMENT, time is ticking…LET US AT HWWC ARISE AND BECOME!!!

I love you all and count it an honor to stand with you!
