One Month Ago Today!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas Odom @ 9:19 pm

Well…..what a difference a month makes.

It was one month ago today that two folks were taken via ambulance to local hospitals as a result of health issues that occurred at the church campus.

As long as I’m alive, I will always remember Saturday, February 21, 2009.

We had just ended a great revival on Friday night with Rev. Zane Estis – a revival where 8 folks were saved.

Scheduled for Saturday was a baby shower for a new mom in our church.

I had also been asked to conduct a private wedding in the late afternoon.

It was also my birthday – 33 years!

With all of that going on, a few men gathered together for a ‘work day’ at the new property that God had blessed us with just 8 days ago.

At 9:34am that morning a call went out to the local 911 office requesting an ambulance – before the day was out – two men had been transported via ambulance to local hospitals.

Three other men dealt with other issues – a rash on the hand of one, back concerns with another and the ‘winded’ effect for yet another.

While God has done great things – I will never forget what that day meant to me.

As I stood in the pulpit the next morning – torn with the events of the previous day – I felt the hand of God directing me one more time.

For a brief moment prior to taking the pulpit I thought about backing up and regrouping – maybe it was too much at one time.

It was then the Spirit of God checked me using this question – “Have you not done all that I’ve asked you to do and have you not sought me for direction?”

I had to answer that question with a BIG YES.

I gathered my thoughts and asked God to use me and this church to reach this area of West Orange County for CHRIST is such a dynamic way!!!

All I can say is – God is GOOD!!
