I am going to be sharing with you a link to a series of sermons by Michael Youssef…these sermons are in mp3 format and so you are only able to listen to them. There are a total of 13 sermons and I encourage you to listen to all 13 of them and see what God brings to you through the messages. While we may be at the end of this reading plan, but we are not to the end…it is not finished for us, here on earth.
I intend to listen to these sermons and then go back to read through Revelations again and answer the questions. It is up to you and your God how you move forward from this last day of this reading plan.
I am taking on a new challenge starting on May 13th. There will NOT be a set “Moment with God” over the next 30 days on the Many Strands page. The challenge I will be taking on is reading and working on a book by Sheri Rose Shepherd called, “Fit for My King.” This challenge includes fasting from certain foods and working on getting into a right mind-set that my body IS NOT MY OWN – it is His Temple inside of me and everything I do with my body is to bring glory to GOD!
I know that during this journey I will be given “Moments with God” and I will share them as He sees fit. If any of you are interested in joining with me and some of my friends…let me know. You will not need the book, but if you have it or want to buy it…great! There is a group already up and ready to stand alongside of you as we fast and get our bodies, minds and spirits into the holy temple that God created them to be. If you would like to join us, please comment to this post or go to the Many Strands page to send me a private message.
I just want to thank You for bringing this study to my heart. I want to thank You for all that I learned over the last 92 days and for the love that You show me through Your word. More importantly Lord, I want to be a vessel that is empty and clean of me, so that I can be a temple that You can live in and shine out of to bring people to You. Help me Lord…I can not do any of this without You. Jesus, I trust You! Use me to bring honor and glory to You! I Love You Lord! I ask these things in Your name, Amen
