When I think back over my life and think about the moments I am most proud of, I think of many, but a few stand out and bring a smile to my face and joy to my heart.
The first one that came to mind was when I accepted Christ as my Savior and was baptized. I remember a Pastor’s class and him asking folks of all ages that had gathered how they felt in the moments after accepting and believing Christ was their Savior. He was going to skip me, because I was so young, but I waved my hand in the air, because I wanted to share with everyone and this was the beginning of real ministry for me.
The second proud moment for me was when I was ordained. To sit through that council, answer those questions, share my testimony and then have the men I had grown up admiring come and lay hands upon me and pray for me was one of the most proud and humbling moments of my life.
When I married my beautiful Bride Joy and when she gave birth to our two beautiful daughters had to rank up there as proud moments. Words cannot even come close to describing how I felt in those moments.
Each church I have been called to minister at have been proud moments for me. For a group of people to entrust their lives into your hands and ministry is such a great blessing and not for the faint of heart.
Just knowing that I have had an impact on making someone’s life a little better is one of those things that makes me proud. I have been blessed with many moments that I was proud, but looking back I have to acknowledge it wasn’t me, but Christ in me that made it all possible, each and every time. G3! = Give God Glory!
