This was an exciting month for me and I couldn’t WAIT to share it with you! The TOUR that Angie BEE Presents kicked off our month with prayer, fasting and our first Community Business Showcase Workshop of the year. Our host was Pastor and First Lady Cassandra Jordan of Impact Church Daytona and we all had a simply wonderful time of fellowship.
I don’t believe it a “coincidence” that we started our 2017 outreach season reaching those in the community. A community is the foundation of growth, spirit and change and we can’t ignore it.
Let me tell you why!
There are some communities in the world where food, shelter and medical treatment are not readily available to all. Other communities restrict an individual’s prayer life and in other places, you can’t even determine the size of your own family. The joy of gathering together, with families and in a house of worship was an honor! We talked about commerce, we prayed, we encouraged one another and the Spirit of the Lord arrived to bless us all.
The winds of change have a fresh new smell. Some church leaders discourage money “changing hands” in their sanctuary. Not the Impact Church Daytona… they accommodated the business owners as they networked. Some event leaders will charge an admission for attendees to be fed and “entertained” during an event. Not on this day as Impact Church Daytona provided our refreshments. Some presenters charge a “speaker’s fee” in order to share their lessons or testimony.
Not the members of The TOUR that Angie BEE Presents as we count it a honor to share the blessings of the Lord with others. Tahara Thompson spoke about her new business and shared her testimony about the goodness of the Lord. Attorney Regina Nunnally had us all in tears as she shared HER testimony of encouragement and endurance. As one of the newest members of The TOUR, even Chaconna Downs shared her experiences of love and change as she was celebrating her first year of residency in Volusia County. Change was all in the air for each of us, and I believe the winds will continue to blow!
The bible teaches us:
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8New Living Translation (NLT)
A Time for Everything
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away.A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace”
There was a season to discourage free commerce in a place of worship. Now, it is understood that the marketplace leaders can not only fund a church, but they can enlarge the territory of a community.
Now is the time to birth a new business or endeavors as old ideas and visions can now die off. Start “pruning” those old, dead limbs of discouragement and frustration and cling to a new vine!
Plant new seeds in your family by introducing new concepts to your children and siblings.
Kill old habits and soul-ties and allow your heart to forgive and heal.
Scatter away any stones of doubt and worry and collect the stones of faith and trust!
Search the scriptures for the answers FIRST and stop resorting to the living word AFTER you have exhausted all other resources.
Keep the Lord’s voice in your ear and throw away the lies that the devil tried to tell you. Cry over those that are lost and don’t know the Lord and help mend their hearts by sharing your testimony with them.
Be still and quiet and know that HE is God and speak the love and blessings that He has allowed you to enjoy. Encourage peace in your home, on the job and in your community and pray for an end to war, famine, discord.
There is a time for everything and change is in the atmosphere. Share this word and your heart with another as God continues to blow the winds of change our way.
Much love andBEE Blessed!
