The infrequencies in my posting have been rather disappointing…
I have stuff to say
So much going on within my life
With God, family, kids…the church plant and all that comes with it.
I think…no, I am pretty sure that I have a “fear”. Not that am totally “fearful”, but In this specific time in my life…I do have a fear problem. Yes I know of the scriptures that say:
“God did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7
“So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
I know the scriptures, I know what they say…the hard thing about them is actually living them out…and to be honest, I am not there yet. What we are doing as a family and as a launch team is something completely crazy. For awhile it was great just “talking” about what our next season God had planned for us. Talking is great, talking is cool, but talking isn’t “doing”.
You see we are way past the “talking” phase of this plant and we are in full blown “doing” mode.
No going back…and I don’t want to. I (we) have to go forward…
It doesn’t matter how fearful I get, I know my God is there.
and you know what?
That’s all I need to keep me going into the great unknown.
Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. 1 Peter 5:6-7
