Change of heart

In Dec 25, 2007, I signed a contract to God that I would seek Him first in everything I do.

A few weeks later, I visited my previous English pastor at Rhode Island.  Before his congregation, he stood up and introduced me....

"This is Cliff.  Did you know he sign a contract to God? [make a signature sign in the air]  Do you hear that?  He is going to serve the Lord fully."

I was sitting in the front, stunned and felt a bit embarrassed he put me on the spot.

Before I headed back to Mississauga, he told me (and my friends) that someday we would be missionaries.

That was about three years ago.

I visited him this summer.  As we discussed how the Lord had been working in my life, I told him what he said three years that time, I was in dis-belief.  Now it is foreseeable.

Funny how things can change in a short three years. How God can change one's heart.
The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.

A contract for God what an awesome concept. I always find it amazing when we by faith step out and do something out of the ordinary for God. I hope and pray that you find that special calling that God has for your life. Looking foreward to what he has for you next.
