This past week has been life changing. It didn’t happen while being prayed for, during worship, or even during an intimate time with God. It happened…well to be honest I don’t really even know when the switch was flipped. I have recently been asking God to help me have an attitude that I WANT to soul win. I have always seen soul winning as something I had to do in order to pass a class and never really did it because I wanted to. Well something happened to where it’s like I cannot help but to soul win, everywhere I go I just need to tell people about Him.
I went to the mall the other day and I couldn’t help but to tell someone about Jesus. I ended up telling two people and they both said no thanks, but I have come to the realization that they weren’t rejecting me but they were rejecting Jesus. I saw it in a completely different way. It’s like my eyes were opened up to the fact that its not about me and it never has been I’m just the messenger and I’m delivering the message and I planted a seed that can now be watered.

I come home from work. She was eating some type of candy food. I don’t know what it was. It was smeared all over her face, in the hair, out the ears, the nose, the eyes, and I walked in and we had about 150 lb. rottweiler at the time and Bear was licking up the remains on the floor.
Wow!!! What a week this has been. All I can say is thank God for giving us The Holy Spirit. For without Him, I would not have survived this week. I have never experienced a week like this past week in my entire life. I am amazed that even in the midst of incredible pressure to perform at a high level, the lack of sleep, and public beatings (I exaggerate), I was able to do my job, remain at peace, and have fun at the same time. The truth is, the old me would have melted under the pressure, would have been offended (many times) and would have been paralyzed by fear.
So I want to thank-you Holy Spirit for changing me, breaking bondages, and tearing down strongholds. Thank-you for setting me free to become the man that you originally designed me to be. Only when I was put to the test and was able to sit back and reflect, can I now see how much I have changed. It truly is amazing what God can do in a very short period of time. I thank God for placing me in this ministry. I thank God for opening the doors of opportunity to serve and to minister and I thank God for the changes that He has made in me. Thank-you Lord for using me (us) to reach a lost and dying world. (thank-you for helping me write this blog)- Lorne Y.
Now, while I’m kissing Lisa, I see, out of the corner of my eye, Lee Beth smiles from her candy mess and begins to smile and begins to kind of nod her head and a twinkle in her eye, kind of like, “Pour it on, dad! (laughter from audience) That’s right, dad”. Why? Because that communicates love.
