Don't Give Up!
It's Beyond Me!
Even when I tried to give up, I couldn't. I tried, but I kept pushing forward and encouraging myself. Sometimes it appeared as though I was so exhausted I was going to drop. But I knew I had to keep forging ahead. If anyone has ever had to organize any event, you know what I'm talking about. You know that it is not by your might or power, but by God's spirit that propels you forward against all odds.
I thank God that He has poured so much wisdom and knowledge in me to do a myriad of things. Or as I like to refer to myself, "A Jacqui of all trades and a master of many." Believe me, when you are planning an event and resources, especially finances are virtually nil, it helps to be able to do many things. In my journey, I just had an inquisitive and creative mind that wanted to know. So, I would set out to learn it and do it.
Howbeit, when excellence is at the forefront of my requirements because I want God to be glorified in all I do, I push myself harder than anyone else. That means, if I pull all nighters and only get a few hours of sleep within a 48-72 hour period, so be it. It's all worth it!
Oh Break Out is all about breaking out of limits that have kept you in bondage long enough. Over the course of these past five events, it has been instrumental in bolstering me out of a state of mediocrity, complacency and passiveness to become diligent, assertive and passionate in doing whatever God tells me to do. Each year, the theme has resonated in me and transformed me in ways I can't even begin to explain.
Not only me, there has been testimony after testimony about how Oh Break Out has propelled people to step out of their comfort zones and do the thing that had paralyzed them. Last year, Psalmist Renee Harris Kinlaw overcame a debilitating fear of riding trains starting when she was 14-years old (almost 40 years ago). She crossed over those tracks and has been riding trains ever since.
For those of you, who have experienced Oh Break Out, send us your testimonies. It is because of you Oh Break Out exists. It may have been birthed out of my pain of oppression, but you are the integral ingredient for its success. It is because of you I, along with my team, labor naturally and spiritually to ensure that when the lights go out, you have been transformed forever to experience the fullness of God and become all He envisioned.
I'm looking forward to seeing you there. I'm not bias when I say, Oh Break Out is an Experience like none other. Experience it yourself and you will walk away with the same sentiment.
