Have You Seen His Power?

Amen

This morning as I was making my way to the first school I drop off children at, this song came on the radio. I have heard it before but I have to tell you, life after 17 days behind bars is completely different than it was prior. Part of that would have to be due to the intensity that I was able to witness God at work every day. I truly must get going on my next book, “16 days and 2 head Counts” for I know it is certainly a volume that will encourage me every time I read a chapter. I know it will for that is what my third book full of true life stories does for me.

Anyway, this song sung by Finding Favor that is called, “Say Amen” started and as I sang the words, I was moved by the words, the truth of them and just the mere fact that I could sing a confident Amen every time he asked if there was anybody out there who had seen the LORD God in a glorious light. For those that can’t see the posted video, here are the words to this particular song:

This life is a journey we walk by faith
And there will always be the mountains in our way
But right here in this moment, may our strength be renewed
As we recall what God has done and how we've seen Him move

If there's anybody here who's found Him faithful
Anybody here who knows He's able
Say Amen
And if there's anybody here who's seen His power
Anybody here brought through the fire
Say Amen
Anybody here found joy in the middle of sorrow
Just Say AMEN!

Sometimes through the darkness, it's hard to see
So just be brave and follow where He leads
'Cause greater is the one who's in us, than he who's in the world
So child of God remember, the battle is the Lord's

And if there's anybody here who's found Him faithful
Anybody here who knows He's able
Say Amen
And if there's anybody here who's seen His power
Anybody here brought through the fire
Say Amen
Anybody here found joy in the middle of sorrow
Peace in the storm, hope for tomorrow
And seen it time and time again
Then just Say AMEN!

Even in the valley of the shadow when you feel alone in the unknown
Just say Amen, Just say Amen
Even when the storms are raging, Stand and know your not forsaken
Just say Amen, Just say Amen

Is there anybody here, Tell me is there anybody here
Come on and Say Amen

And if there's anybody here who's seen His power
Anybody here brought through the fire
Come on and Say Amen
Anybody here found joy in the middle of sorrow
Peace in the storm, hope for tomorrow
And seen it time and time again
Just say Amen, Just say Amen!


As lines were sung, memories came flooding back and instantly I was in awe of how glorious the LORD God truly is. I know it is in giving thanks that our eyes are opened further and we are able to catch glimpses of the LORD God working in our lives. This truth is obvious in my own true life story. As I lived many of my published chapters, I didn’t always see my blessings. It was in coming to the cross that my own eyes were opened to countless things I had missed while living through my trials and tribulations.

Today I know I am guaranteed trials and tribulations, I mean in all honesty, I spent the first 17 days of this year dressed in orange and being seen as guilty until proven innocent by our justice system. I truly believed I was 40 days “in the desert” since as a felon, you don’t even get a voice until your 40th day. I was resolved to the fact that I was going to be behind bars for a minimum of 40 days. Every day, I asked God to use me where I was and I am so excited to share just what all took place in what I will forever consider the “Pit of Hell” in my next book which I am going to call “16 Days and 2 Head Counts”.

Alas, I am getting ahead of myself. What I am trying to say is when you finally find your way to “The New”, you discover a kind of peace regardless of the storm. You begin to truly have faith that your Heavenly Father is truly your provider and when you walk in faith, you live supernaturally. The LORD God is truly able to move mountains for you because you know He will. I truly believe this is what we gain when we live from Faith to Faith and Glory to Glory:

For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” ( Romans 1:17 NKJV)

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV)

If I could give anyone a gift, it would be the gift of freedom from doubt and fear and uncertainty. It is truly my prayer that my true life story that the LORD God called me forth to share does just that for countless of my brothers and sisters who remain lost today or who are wavering in their faith. I would love to be part of what spurs you onto greater faith, which brings me to this:

ON MARCH 6th and 7th, you can download a FREE copy of “You Are Worthy Too: The Proof is in the Pudding” on Amazon.com by clicking on this link: Click Here for a FREE Copy! Fair warning, I allowed Amazon to convert my print version to a kindle format and it doesn’t look like they created a linkable table of contents so sorry about that. I was truly only going to do this book in print but then I was tempted to let Amazon create a Kindle version as part of their publishing package allows for a offering the book for free for a couple of days!

It is my prayer that as you read my story, it does for you what many have already claimed it has done for them. Lifted their spirits, encouraged them, given them hope and INCREASED their FAITH! I will be making the announcement for the next week so that as many people as possible have time to hear about the Free Download. Please spread the word to anyone you feel could use a little pep in their step! Be blessed and BE A BLESSING!
