Stop Struggling - Start Doing
I grew up around big trucks and heavy equipment, so it was not a huge surprise that I found a job in construction. I had to work my way up from the bottom, doing all the jobs that were less than desirable.
As I proved myself with each job given to me, I was promoted to horizontal directional drill rig operator. I devoted myself to becoming the best operator I could for our crew and the company. I read all the books and practiced techniques to make me better and more efficient.
I made it to the head of my class and was the senior operator. I was now the "trainer" for those learning to drill. I had all the knowledge and could run this machine with my eyes closed. Now I had to pass this information on.
I can remember one particular situation where I was told I needed to train a guy I will call “Kenny” to run the horizontal directional drill rig.
As I began to teach Kenny the basics of this complex machine, he was excited to get on to give it a try. So, I sat him on the machine for his first drill. It did not take long to see that he was struggling. I went back and gave him more instruction. He still seemed to struggle.
I went to the far ends of my knowledge to help Kenny learn this machine and how to operate it. I drew him pictures. I wrote out simple step by step procedures that he could study, memorize, and practice at home.
Day in and day out, Kenny would come to work and try to run this machine but could not get it.
Kenny refused to apply the simple principles that I had given him to make this machine work. He had a plan and idea of how it should go, and he was determined to do it his way!
How often do we find ourselves doing God the same way? He gives us a blueprint, yet we still try to accomplish His plans in our own understanding. Perhaps you are still in the phase of “God has called me to be an evangelist, pastor, teacher, prophet, or even apostle”, but you do not even know what that means! This is a good thing! You just need to say YES to His call and then allow Him to train you up.
Please know that I am here for you! I too have walked these same roads and have had the same questions. So, I know what you are facing right now. The Lord directed me to A.M.I., and it was through them that the Lord brought the clarity and confirmation I needed to see what He was doing in me.
I no longer had to wander in the wilderness for 40 years to figure it out! God sent an apostolic team ahead of me to prepare the way. They could easily recognize where I was in my call, and then they put the tools in my hands so I could rise up and be the mighty warrior God called me to be.
If you have any questions, please contact me. I will get you to the right place to get you the training you need, okay?
