In a couple of days it will be eight years since I made a decision which changed my life for the better. This week will mark the anniversary of when I received a cd set titled, “Your Wish Is Your Command. After listening to the training, I became a member of the Global Information Network on April 28, 2010.
A lot has happened over those eight years. I have travelled to parts of the world I would never have dreamed of seeing. I have met wonderful people from all over this planet, many of whom I am privileged to call friends. I have been encouraged, mentored, and blessed by those within, and outside the club. There are others who have criticized and de-friended me, both on social networks and physically, because I was a member and continued to be a member. The last group questioned my integrity and my faith for because of my decision. I realized a long time ago, they never really knew me, or understood my commitment to the path of truth and to God and His Word.
These eight years have been an exciting, Holy Spirit lead, journey of discovery. I have had the privilege to represent Jesus to individuals I would never have met, to share insights with others who were turned off to God and His Word, to pray for people and situations I would never have dreamed of earlier in my life.
One of my blessings has been the challenge to go deeper in God’s Word to find answers to questions I might never have even considered. I have been called “preacher,” “pastor” and friend by people alienated by negative experiences with those who called themselves “Christian.” Opportunities have been mine to connect with people who, many in the “church,” would label as “new age,” or other negative labels. I have been able to provide a listening ear of understanding on their expertise, without condemnation, to discern truth they believe in, that is in fact Biblical in foundation. Being able to agree to amicably disagree on some things, without denying my faith, or putting someone else down, is a gift I believe God has provided as part of my journey. It has opened a door to continued opportunities to influence others for Jesus.
I know there are those who would demand to know names, dates, and numbers of individuals who have specifically “been born again” as a result of my time in the Global Information Network, as justification for my decision. How do I know this, because they have. However, I don’t, and never have been, a pin head counter. I believe it is my responsibility to represent Jesus, as best as I can, where ever I am, with honesty, integrity, and love. It is task to “sow and water and God’s to give the increase.”
I really never have been committed to a specified lingo in the representation of God’s Word and truth. I am however extremely committed to the validity, inspiration and application of the principles and truth of God’s Word. I believe in the power of the sacrifice Jesus made on the Cross of Calvary to reconcile God and humanity and the benefits of that action to provide life, both abundant and eternal, to all who will say YES to the relationship with God through Jesus, the Messiah. If you ever attempt to say, “I am soft on sin, or avoid speaking about the ‘blood of Jesus,’” then you do not know me or have not paid close enough attention to what I say.
My journey with the Global Information Network began with a decision and it continues with a decision. My journey has prepared me for the process of building out The SEE Method of Living, knowing it is grounded in a Biblical foundation and also aligns with universal truth as it is applied into all areas of life. My desire is, you will SEE and experience it for yourself.
