We Made It!

We made it…the fast is over! And, while the fast may be over, it is the start of some new amazing things. It is a day for miracles, breakthroughs, overcoming, anointing and VICTORY!! As we head towards our Miracle Offering weekend we are in the victory lane. Can you feel it?

Tonight as we broke the fast at First Wednesday, it was supernatural, and I believe that is just the start of things to come. We are in the victory lap for our miracle offering this weekend. You are not going to want to miss it. Continue to pray for C3 that God would provide all we need for His House.

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. John 6:35

Isn’t it awesome to know Jesus is all we need? He satisfies. Speaking of bread…. tonight we went and got sushi and Starbucks coffee. Can I just tell you my taste buds are amazingly sensitive. I felt like I was drinking the whole bean! I could taste all the flavor. And the same with the sushi, I could taste all the flavors and spices. And so could others who had been on the fast. It was incredible.

My prayer is that I will stay that sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

Take some time to pray and journal and wrap up this defining moment in your life.

I am so proud of you and how you stepped up to the calling God put before you to fast.

Thanks for taking this journey with us.

We love you guys!!

    What an amazing journey the past 21 days have been. Thanks again for you and Pastor Matt taking the lead on this and being such an inspiration. I have to say, it felt a little sinful enjoying the sushi so much, it was WONDERFUL! You’re awesome and I thank you for challenging us as a staff and in our own lives to be all that God has called us to be. I know although the fast has ended something new is beginning in our personal lives and in the life of our church. I can’t wait to see what God has in store!

    This may sound crazy, but this morning as I drank my first cup of coffee in three weeks I was filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude at the goodness of God. I think it takes going without something to truly appreciate it. I want to thank the leadership of C3 for taking us on this journey. I never thought I would eat tofu, much less enjoy it! Thank you Martha for all of the insight and encouragement.

    Thanks so much for your encouragement through your blog Martha and all that you do. The Fast was a special tool God has used in my life and your blog was very helpful to me during this new experience. May God richly bless you, your family, and C3 in the coming days!!!!

    Proverbs 3:5-6
    …Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on you own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight…
    So many times I’ve fallen away, but I feel as if this time, I’m here for good and now I know what my purpose is. I finally feel at home and a sudden peace has come over me. I’ve learned not to worry or doubt anything because God will never give me more than I can handle, nor will I try to attempt to handle anything on my own.
    I’ve memorized this : Faith is trusting and believing in God even when it doesn’t make any sense.
    They say if you raise your children in Christ that they may stray at times and it may take a while but they will always find their way back. In my case, this is true. From 15 to 21, no longer active in the church, leading a life of my own and on my own making mistakes and having endless regrets, this was my life. All of those times I lost my faith and felt hopeless, I turned to God, but it seemed only in desperate times when I had no one else. Then I turned away once things got better, although still with an empty feeling left over.
    An emptiness that soon was replaced by this overwhelming feeling and tears of Joy that I cannot even begin to explain once I found C3. I felt at home and I didn’t have to search further because all the answers were right in front of me and I know where I belonged and I feel closer to God, the closest I’ve ever been. I look forward to Sunday mornings, I would be empty all over again without them. You can go out on a Friday night, and drink and stay out late and have tons of fun, wake up with a hangover and forget about all the fun you had. I wake up and remember God and I am happy and after church on Sunday, I find myself already talking about next Sunday. I feel as if I’m not the same person and I feel as if I have grown so much in such a short amount of time. My outlook is a positive one. My life here on earth is because of Him and I am here to thank Him for it and share what he has layed on my heart.
    I’ve learned to surround myself with positive people, it reflects on me, we reflect on eachother. Have you ever been in a room with one negative person, just one little person, and how quickly their bad mood affects everyone? If you surround yourself with positive people then that is what you yourself will portray.
    There is more to life than everyone thinks or lives. More than the parties and late nights. Its a miracle that I’ve washed my hands clean of it. I wish people would give God a chance. I’ve learned that you can’t experience a miracle if you aren’t open and willing to accept it. If your heart is hardened and your already looking for ways to not believe then how will you ever be able to be open for a change?
    God works in ways you wouldn’t even think of.
    I think we as people all need proof of something to believe in it. We need to see a miracle with out own eyes in order to believe it. People need proof that Jesus exists, those are people with little or no faith.
    Hebrews 11 :1
    …Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about the things we cannot see…
    I have witnessed many “mini” miracles in my life and in those close to me. Everyone needs a miracle. I honestly wish I could change the world, but if I could help just one person find God then I’d be just as happy.
    I am no preacher or any better or higher than anyone, I am changed and I couldn’t ask for anything more…
