A quiet reflection…

A little over 30 years ago I was birthed. Just a few days ago I was reborn. Saturday, January 17th, 2009 marked the 8th year since my father went home to be with the Lord. I was in church on Saturday evening as usual and Dr. Dollar had us demonstrate something that was very profound. He had us take all those people that may have hurt us in the past and place them in our hand and cast them away… in an essence release them. Now as a World Changer I have seen this demonstration done before and had participated in it. However this time I truly did believe it by faith coupled with action of taking communion that evening just sealed the deal…

That night I released only one person; that one person was the old me. Now I know that I am renewed each and every morning by the blood.
