A call to All

Last night I spoke at my home church, Maranatha Chapel. There were close to a thousand people there (I think). When I arrived my prayer was that God would show up. I always just want the Lord to not show His presence, but that He would take over completely.

There have been so many amazing things happening because of Soul Surfer. I’m constantly asking the Lord to help me humble myself through it all so He doesn’t have too. It’s kind of funny to say this, but I feel through it all, it has forced humility on me because I feel so inadequate to be used in any way.

I know and believe God doesn’t use us because we are good enough to be used; He uses us in situations so that we may bring glory to Him. Without Jesus and the grace He has bestowed on my life I would be and have NOTHING. What a relief it has nothing to do with my ability!!! God is good and faithful. May I give Him glory for all things;)

If you want to listen to the talk you may do so by going to Maranathachapel.com and check out the Sunday April 03, 2011 – Ray Interviews Sarah Hill webcast.

I am now headed to New York to praise His name. Please pray for me.

About Sarah Rachel Hill

After graduating high school, a tragic surfing accident changed Sarah Hill's life. Suffering a broken neck and back, Sarah clung to Christ and through this painful journey, God's plan and purpose for her life started to become clear. After recovering from her accident, Sarah completed her Associate's Degree in theology from Calvary Chapel Bible College (CCBC). Trusting God, Sarah returned to surfing and became a missionary to the island of Kauai in June 2001. There, Sarah founded Kauai Child, a ministry geared toward the island's kids. Soon after arriving in Kauai, she began spending more of her time in ministry to junior and senior high students. Sarah has helped create youth groups on the North Shore of Kauai and ministers to more than 150 kids a week. Because of her fun and loving approach to youth, she has one of the largest youth groups on Kauai. Sarah takes the time to truly listen and understand the full scope of each student's needs. Her ministry also includes helping establish Christian clubs in public schools, discipling kids, counseling students and their families, and of course, her ministry to kids on the water while surfing! Grounded in her devotion and love for Christ for more than 17 years and in ministry for 12 years, Sarah's training allows her to recognize those in need and gives her the ability to reach out to them. After growing up in a tough and abusive home, through God's grace, she continues impacting lives for God's kingdom on Kauai ... and beyond. In SOUL SURFER, Sarah is portrayed by Carrie Underwood.

    Thanks for speaking at Maranatha! I finally got a chance to watch it via the internet since I now live out of state. I am in the midst of a hard life event right now (divorce/homelessness/single parenthood/alienation of family), and it’s only be God’s strength and the compassion of followers of Christ that I’m getting through it. So the part about “flapping” or “soaring” really resonated with me. And the part about them taking Jer. 29:11 out of the movie is sad since it holds such purpose for me (and many) in hard circumstances. Thanks again!

      I am so glad you were encouraged. That was my prayer for the message. God is with you, don’t forget that. His grace will be enough to get us through the day. You will be in my prayers. Just soar on His strength(;
      In the end Jer.29:11 was left in the movie;) He will always win the battle. One day every knee will bow and tongue confess. Thanks for writing me;)
