When Josh and I decided to start this ministry, it was a huge leap of faith. We knew God was calling us into the unknown and it was scary, but it was also really exciting! Over the past three years, we have watched God work in such huge ways. Not only have we seen Him touch hearts, change lives, and heal broken people; we've also seen Him provide for us miraculously and direct us clearly.
We now find ourselves once again, listening anxiously for His voice. We believe that there are some changes on the horizon, but we're not sure what that means or what that will look like. Josh and I have both felt a stirring in our hearts, so we pray and wait. We are confident God will direct us, and yet it's scary! We want to be wise, to go where God is leading, to step out with courage or to stay in contentment. We want to love each other and our boys and our friends and family well. We want to shine bright for Christ. But sometimes, the how? and where? and when? are not clear.
This morning as I continued working my way through the book of Deuteronomy. I found myself reading these verses and smiling.
“If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?’— you shall not be afraid of them, but you shall remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt: the great trials which your eyes saw, the signs and the wonders, the mighty hand and the outstretched arm, by which the Lord your God brought you out. So shall the Lord your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid."
And so, when I am afraid,
when I feel overwhelmed or uncertain about the future . . .
I will remember well what the Lord my God has done!
I will remember well the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm by which the Lord my God has brought us out and through!
