In our 5:17 Breakthrough Prayer we have been asking for God to, “Show us how to make a difference in our community and in the world.” God has been answering that prayer! This week we want to share with you a Breakthrough Testimony from one of our church members, Sheila Poindexter:
We first started giving out the Breakthrough Prayer Cards at the Food Pantry and explained to
the people what we would like them to join us in doing with this prayer and what it means.
Then I decided to keep some in my purse since we had extras, and when I sense God guiding me to share a card and explanation with someone -usually a stranger - I do. I can't tell you the peace and joy I receive when I let God lead me in doing this. Since I have been a member of New Creation, first through Grace Harbor, I am not as shy about sharing the Lord with others and sometimes in strange and different ways, yet effective.
Just recently I went to a new dentist and at the end of the visit I was put with the lady in charge of explaining cost, procedures etc. When I went in the office that day, I felt like I was supposed to share with someone, but didn't know who, and then the Lord gave me a strong push to give and share with her. She thanked me and said she would share with her Mom who is a pastor in a non-denominational church. It definitely pays to let the Lord lead; He truly gives and gave me boldness as our prayer says in the end. Amen!
Thank you, Sheila for allowing God to use you to make a difference! If you have a Breakthrough that you would like to share, please pass it along to us.
Sunday, we continue our series entitled Gospel. This week is also Palm Sunday. As we celebrate Jesus our King making His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, we will also be exploring the kind of Kingdom that He came to usher in. Invite a friend and join us for an exciting week of worship!
