In the last post, I talked about the big moments we can recall in vivid detail. We remember who was with us, what happened, how it felt. Often, we share how that moment changed our life.
I shared one moment that is talked about a lot in scripture- I call it the RED SEA story -when the children of Israel were caught between death – and death. It was that moment when God showed up like he had never shown up before and they were saved. (You can read more about that in the post from yesterday)
I’m guessing that even as you read that description, you immediately think of one or more occasions in your own story that changed you.
I wish we could sit over a cup of coffee and share those moments together. I would love to hear about the moment that changed you in the comments section or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For now, I’ll share my story RED SEA moment with you. It was the day my 15 year old daughter, Leisha, died.
I didn’t know how I was going to survive the grief tunnel any more than the children of Israel knew how they were going to get out of Egypt, or get through the Red Sea.
God had to show up! And he had to show up differently than he ever had before! Continue reading What Happens When a Moment Changes Your Life
The discussion Rennie & I shared with a small group of friends turned to moments in our life we remember really well.
We each shared stories of special events- concerts, sporting events, etc. that we recalled in vivid detail. We remembered who was with us, what happened, how it felt. Often, someone would share how that moment had changed their life.
Like the young man who as a boy was with his father at a baseball game when a world breaking home run was made. He remembered the permission he and the entire grandstand had to celebrate the moment in a loud and crazy fashion.
Or the young woman who just experienced a training event over the weekend that seems to have had a life-changing impact on her future. She spoke with excitement, passion and tears about the moment she knew this was was she needed to do next.
Then our leader asked, ” What is the arena where God shows up in our life?”
Life events – Tragedies – Celebrations
We all had moments to share. And most of them were the Big Moments. Moments we could recall in vivid detail. We remembered who was with us, what happened, how it felt. Often, someone would share how that moment had changed their life.
I immediately thought of my MOMENT. Actually a series of moments that I consider to be my RED SEA moment. Continue reading Looking at the BIG Moments that Change Your Life
