Today, I’m live-blogging the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta. The next speaker I’ll be live-blogging about is Carlos Whittaker.
Carlos is a People’s Choice Award winner, a former recording artist signed to a major label, a social media maven, and currently spends the majority of his time writing books (recently released Kill The Spider) and speaking on stages around the world.
Being human is hard. But there is hope.
Sin creeps in. It sits in the corner. And we keep letting sin sit there.
The good news is, there is hope. There is hope in surrender.
We have to get to the point where we’re not striving for courage. Courage is found in surrender.
Surrender looks different for everyone.
Carlos’ father was a preacher and he was doing a revival. A lady came to him and asked him to pray that God will clean the cobwebs. He prayed for her.
The next night the lady comes back. He was thinking she was coming to tell him God had cleaned the cobwebs. She didn’t. She asked for prayer once more for God to clean the cobwebs.
The third night she comes back. She begins to ask him to pray God cleans the cobwebs. He told her NO. We are going to pray that God will KILL the spider making the cobwebs.
We all have cobwebs that have come from the spiders in our lives. These spiders need to be killed.
