My daughter Kim and her family are moving into their new home today and I am helping them. Being an old geezer, by the end of the day I will hardly be able to blink let alone type a blog.
So here, for your viewing and listening pleasure, is a clip on how a mobile phone salesman, who was bullied all his life, lacked confidence, always felt unworthy and yet had one place of escape in his life - his voice.
Paul had a room he would go to when he was feeling sad or rejected and his voice became his place of comfort. For many today, it is destructive behaviour that they turn to but for Paul, it was singing opera.
He filled in an online application for the 'Britian's Got Talent Show' and flipped a coin to see if he would press the send button. One Chance!
Here is his debut performance that stuns everyone and launches a world-wide career. From this moment on his life completely changed. How many know that good things still happen to people who dare to dream?
After watching the clip, and over 19 million have already, I would encourage you to look up as many Paul Potts 'YouTube' or 'Google' clips you can. You will be inspired by a young man who overcame so many obstacles to do what he believes he was born to do. He just kept at it. Interesting!
I am convinced that God is shaping our lives long before we realize it is Him. He is working in us as ministers, congregations and communities to do and to will of His good pleasure. We are fearfully and wonderfully made to glorify Him with our time, talent and treasure. Enjoy!
At Mission O, Ministers Matter!
