Kairos,” is a Greek word used for time in the New Testament, more specifically defined as, God’s appointed/approved time. (Mark 1:15, 2 Corinthians 6:2, and 1 Peter 5:6) Kairos also signifies a unique moment in history, a predestined era. Man’s extremity is Gods opportunity… (His appointed time). We have to be mindful to never move ahead of God; for the steps of a good man or woman are ordered by the Lord!!! Yet, in our patience, we have to possess our souls. God has a divine plan, “a predestined era,” for his people. There will always be stumbling blocks, “opinions” and disappointments. If we can remember that in order to reach our “DESTINY,” God first APPOINTS, “AT THIS TIME YOU ARE TO WALK IN YOUR GIFT OR CALL AS TO PERFECT IT” (your extremity), and in his time, he APPROVES (Gods opportunity)!!!! “Acknowledge God in all of our ways, and he will direct our paths. God has called us for such a time as this, (therefore we keep our appointment), and for that alone…we are “THANKFUL.” All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change comes… TO RECEIVE HIS APPROVAL…DON’T FORGET THE MATH–[YOUR EXTREMITY / YOUR APPOINTED TIME + GODS OPPORTUNITY * GODS APPROVAL = “DESTINY FULFILLED”] Be Blessed!!! (SLW)
Vision: I challenge myself in the next 5 years to obtain and acquire with all of the Godly strength given to me, these things which have been placed on my heart…
a) to purchase/build a home for my wife and children. (Accomplished)
b) to study Gods Word as an ordained minister in preparation of pastoring one day.
c) To never move one gifts journey ahead of the other.
d) To produce quality music.
e) To choose Artist(s) with a heart and passion for their craft(s). In this circle of talent it is my desire that together we are able to transcend the normality of the current state of the music industry.
f) To build a state of the art recording facility that includes a rehearsal studio, offices, conference room, post and pre-production rooms along with film editing capabilities. My vision is that the studio is located in a woodsy or country area where there is peace and tranquility, along with spacious living quarters.
g) To produce music that is not just Stellar or Dove standard but Grammy Award winning music.
h) To become successful enough in music production financially that I’m able to care for my parents and allow my mother to retire and obtain capable help for the rehabilitation of my father.
i) To leave an inheritance for my children and future generations.
j) To establish other businesses under the Genesis Music Group umbrella.
These things that I desire to achieve are all necessary to be fulfilled prior to my final destination & call to one day Pastor. These requests and hearts desires I place before the Lord and ask his blessings over the receivers and the carrier AMEN…
