A God Moment

Posted on September 1, 2010


Have you ever had a “God moment”? You know, when something happens in such a way that makes it clear that a higher power was at work in your life?

It could be something as simple as a song coming on the radio that is relevant to a challenge you’re dealing with, a headhunter calling with a job opportunity the day after you’ve been laid off, or maybe it’s something huge like the unexplained healing of a terminal illness.

It’s been said that God works in strange ways. But let’s be clear about something – that’s not the only way He works. The everyday, seemingly “normal” things we do can have a significant impact. We may not always see the results or experience the benefits of our work, but that’s absolutely ok. We are to give unselfishly, not so others will recognize us, but simply because it’s the right thing to do. To God be the glory.

I find it ironic that the “normal” things are so hard for me to do – is it because they don’t seem interesting enough? Do you ever feel that way? If so, isn’t it odd then that we often hesitate when God places something extraordinary in front of us, because we wonder “How could I ever do something like that? I’m just me!” Strange indeed.

We must faithfully allow God to work through us. Simply put, sometimes we need to get over ourselves and get the heck out of the way.

I would like to offer you a chance to get the heck out of the way.

Would you please consider an opportunity to let God touch others by working through you?

We learn from each other. And it’s absolutely critical that we support each other as Christ followers. Would you please consider sharing your story with others? This can be your testimony – how you came to believe and what it has meant for your life. Or it can be an example of how God’s grace has impacted your life in a certain situation. Sometimes those situations are joyful and often they are extremely painful.

It’s often in those painful times that we reach out to God and seek answers. As believers, we have an incredible opportunity to help others find their way back to God and to stay there. If we’re truthful, many of us have had no clue how to find God and consistently feel His influence in our lives until someone else shined a light to lead the way. This is why community is so important.

If you would be so kind to share your insight by e-mail to bwilly7@mac.com, I will post it on my website, www.testimonyandtunes.com for others to benefit from. I can’t honestly tell you who will see it or how God will use it, but I have faith that He will and I promise that I will do my best to get the heck out of His way!

My hope is that people who need to hear your stories and insights will find them – and that God will lead us to each other. NO ONE should feel alone. NO ONE can fill the gaping holes in our lives but God. This is a small step in hoping to close that gap.

Thank you in advance for your help. Also, please share any ideas you have for improving www.testimonyandtunes.com and making sure that anyone who would consider it a valuable resource can find it. Let’s spread the word!

God bless,
