“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”~ Jeremiah 29:11
This is one of the most well known and beloved scriptures in the Bible. It was one of the first scriptures that I held on to, memorized and turned to for encouragement. God has promised a unique plan for every single believer and that plan is designed to give us hope and a prosperous future. Are you living the plan God has for you? Do you know how?
According to a Barna Research Group study, 79% of Americans identify themselves as Christian, but 72% of them don’t know what that means. They don’t know how to live the abundant Christian life partly because they have not spent enough time with Jesus in prayer or with his Word. They don’t know who they are in Christ enough to claim the promises of God in their lives and have the faith to live the abundant Christian life of victory and impact. They don’t know how to hear God’s voice and surrender to his much better plans for their lives.
God called me to write Clips that Move Mountains and the Kingdom Impact blog to help people remedy that. Clips that Move Mountains is not a book you read as much as one you experience. It uses true stories, real miracles and film clips as inspirational jump offs to help answer some of life’s toughest questions such as:
• Is it logical to follow Jesus?
• How do I grow my relationship and intimacy with Christ?
• How can I find forgiveness and overcome life’s challenges?
• How can I hear God’s voice?
• How can I live my faith in today’s culture?
• How do I shine the light of Christ to people who really need Him?
The Kingdom Impact blog is an extension of the Clips that Move Mountains idea. Each blog article will jump off of a video clip that illustrates a scripture verse. We’ll dive into the spiritual nuggets in the scripture and a film clip and challenge you to make it personal with a life application question.
God wants to use this Kingdom Impact Blog and the Clips that Move Mountains book to draw you closer to Jesus. It’s practical Biblical guidance that will help you live out the plans God has for you. A permission's draft of the book is in the hands of the film companies seeking their approval for including their clips in the book. Please agree with me in prayer for a "Yes" and "Amen" for all 23 film clips for the book. God inspired me to write about them so I know that HE wants them included in the book. Both the enhanced e-book and QR code paperback versions of Clips that Move Mountains will be available for sale to the public in November, of 2013. God has big plans for you; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. Let’s learn more about them and begin to walk them out together!
