This being my first Christmas season at Potential Church, I didn't want to miss the kickoff today. I feel so blessed to have experienced an amazing service with my sons, bff and niece. The message was loud and clear once again. I have been receiving this same message a lot lately. Appreciate the past but let it go, be present and look to the future with hope!
MY FUTURE DIDN'T END IN THE PAST. Let that soak in. So I had never really heard Christmas being explained the way that Pastor Troy broke it down today. Christmas is about the future. About having HOPE for the future. Not about beating yourself up about everything that has gone wrong in your life. Let's face it we have all made mistakes in the past or have had people hurt us or even events happen which have shaken us to the core and dimmed our light. It's time for us to leave the past where it belongs, behind us. We cannot change that "event" but we can decide to live our purpose and destiny. Jesus was born to rescue us from our past and bring hope for a brighter future. Amen! "God did not send his Son into the world to judge and condemn the world, but to be its Savior and rescue it!" Amen!
At the end of service, Pastor Troy asked all individuals ready to step into their future to come forward. I felt compelled to do so and I did! The tug in my heart was too strong to be denied. With courage and faith, I prayed for courage and surrendered. I will live my purpose. I will lead and serve from my heart. I have been called and I am ready! 🙏🎄🎇💕🙌📿
