Read the winning entry below:
For the past two years I have been going to The Little Church of Bluffton. We used to have 50 members now there are only 4. The old pastor had gotten in some trouble misusing the funds and had to step down.
We have had over a half a dozen pastors come and give their message but none of them wanted to commit to captain our little church. I have been the music director there since the old minister had to leave. Every time I go to play the Holy Spirit comes over me and I begin to testify.
I get so welled up with the Spirit that tears will flow from my eyes. I have been weaving a sermon every time I go to play with no practice or intention to do so. Last week I went to the church by myself to change the locks because you could enter with just a pocket knife and there were signs that others were coming in and using the facilities.
I went from room to room just looking and feeling the little Church for the first time. Then a feeling came over me that the reason the church could not find a preacher was it was waiting for me!
I posed this to one of my minister friends and they said that they believed I had the calling and would do the honers of ordaining me. I am now acting as intern Minister until my ordainment and everyday I am filled with the holy spirit.
The reason I consider this a bold move is:
I have never been one for commitments( as some of the folks at TCP may already know)
It was a bold move on God's part to reach out and touch me with this inspiration.
All those things that were once Grey are now clear!
AS a true testimony, live large for the Lord and he will give you the right direction in your life.
My God always bless you in everything you do and give you the tools to praise him everyday.
