Journal Entry 1-14-07...Follow up to last Blog...
So after receiving the vision from God to start a bible study on International Drive for the Hospitality and Visitors, I waited for His confirmation. For a whole year I kept things to myself and I rarely even referred back to the vision. I got caught up in LIFE and in Business and Ministry and ho humming along.
Around early January of 2007 (one year after I received the vision) I went to Atlanta, Georgia to do a few business seminars and at the end of my second day I asked if anyone knew of a bible study I could go to that evening. Someone invited me to the bible study at their church so it was done I was going to get my fill that night...
The preacher was sort of preaching a prosperity message based on the scripture found in II Corinthians 8:9-9. The preacher preached on that scripture almost the entire night, but God told me to keep on reading...so I did, and this is what the WORD said to me...
2 Corinthians 8:10-15
New King James Version (NKJV)
10 And in this I give advice: It is to your advantage not only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago;11 but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have. 12 For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.
So I had no idea what the Lord was talking about at that particular time, but I made note of it in my journal and I listened to the rest of the sermon on getting rich, and wrote very little else that evening in my journal.
A few weeks later it occurred to me that I should go and look back a year in my journal to find out what this scripture was referring me to. Lo and behold I found out that the vision for the bible study on I Drive was given to me almost exactly a year prior to January 14th. That is when I looked up into the heavens and thought, "You are not going to let up on this one, are You?"
It was then that I knew that I had to find a place and start that bible study so that I may do God's will.
After may exploratory drives through International Drive, many meeting with our mother church, and many meetings with religious organizations, we opened up our doors in June of 2008.
God is GOOD!!!
