Greetings from all of us here at Serenity Now.
I (Brooke) want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for this month, April, being the start of our 19th year in business. Not a single day would have been possible without your support.
The other day I was blessed enough to be reminded of the verse in Genesis where God said, “Let there be light and there was light.” I have heard the verse before, but this time I felt almost a physical impact from it. On that very same day I was here at the store, when a beautiful guest came in wanting to purchase the book, Your Word is Your Wand. It's a book that I read many years ago where the title of the book covers the meat and potatoes of the message which basically says we create like our Heavenly Father with our word. We are like kings and queens that rule our kingdom with our declarations.
Wouldn’t you know it, that very night I was guided to watch the movie Unbreakable. At one point, one of the characters says, “People are starting to lose hope. It's hard for men to believe that there are extraordinary things inside themselves as well as others”. In the movie Bruce Willis’ character has superpowers. I know you are so shocked to hear Bruce Willis is playing a hero. To me one of the messages of the movie is that these superpowers are a lot more common than we realize. I related to the sentence, “People are starting to lose hope.” I appreciated that they didn't end the movie at hopelessness, but reminded all of us that with Christ within, all things are possible.
