As a Minister you deal with all sorts of life changing decisions as well as great great physical losses as people within your congregation, friends, family and others make their transition to eternity. This can cause great sorrow at times and great joy at the same time because you’re aware of the freedom that takes place as they take flight. Today I celebrate a life that taught me how to live and not just exist when at one time all I did was exist. I celebrate Marilyn Howard who was a powerful instrument who used to tell me life was too short to simply exist and I deserved to live. A great supporter of myself and the ministry. This beautiful Soul was used by God to show me that what I had prayed for from the tender age of 14 was standing right in front of me, all I had to do was say YES!!! Also a visionary who knew the value of investing in others. Although her flight and celebration of life happened 10 years ago this month, I am so very grateful for her and give thanks to Abba God for allowing me the honor of such a gift.
Today as you spend time in meditation and prayer give thanks for the supporters, visionaries and powerful instruments who were life changing for you.
(Philippians 1:3 CPDV)-“I give thanks to my God, with every remembrance of you,”
