God has had me on a very specific journey for the past year and a half. He asked me to trust Him. I have been a lot better about it than I used to be, but I still have moments of putting my fingerprints on what God wants to handle.
Right now, there are a lot of things up in the air for us as a family. It seems the adult members of our clan are being required of God to trust Him in an even deeper way. We are all thinkers, and it is easy for us to rationalize our way through life. He is calling me personally to watch what He can do. It is easy, sometimes. 😀
“Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:13
- What is the most effective way for me to reach people?
- How can I get the church motivated to get outside the walls of their local buildings in the name of Christ?
- What does God want me to do in order to accomplish these things?
- I am a singer-songwriter. I have a somewhat flourishing business in the non-Christian market, where I “sneak” in songs about faith and God. Should I give that up?
- I have Christian songs that I write. Should I do that instead?
- I see the body of Christ fumbling and bumbling in their methods to get people to attend regularly, but church attendance has been declining for decades. Should I do music to get THEIR attention?
- Am I that effective of a person at all? I mean, I mess up… A LOT.
- Because I mess up a lot, and admit it, does that mean that I am relatable or just ridiculous?
- The church seems to ignore me a lot. Is this because I speak truth and I should keep going doing what is difficult? Or…
- Should I just leave them to whatever messes they are up to until they listen to someone, and “preach” where I’m wanted?
Yep. I’ve got lots of questions.
Vulnerable souls are usually susceptible to people’s judgment. Either they consider you a “good-hearted” person, but incapable of saying anything of worth, or you are too flawed to be able to give. What they don’t see is that vulnerability trends to change faster, because of its honesty. And oftentimes, vulnerable souls are very strong in faith.
