I want nothing more than to be faithful.
The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.
How grateful and blessed I am to finally have my eyes opened.
I assume too much and discern too little.
There is no need to sorrow, there is no need to fear. Christ will find a way. This is hard because as much as I want to give up my dream and my family and my life, it is only for Jesus and the sake of the gospel that I may do this. Even what looks like a sacrifice to the world could be contrary to what Jesus really has planned.
Better to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and rest in that. There is a rest for His people.
I don’t know what’s ahead. And that is probably best. I am pretty sure this page was left intentionally blank and for a very good reason. I’ve said it before, and I’m still frightened but filled with great joy. But that is why I keep going. Because that joy sustains me. That is my source of strength.
Jesus answered and said to them, “Are you not therefore mistaken, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God?” - Mark 12:24
The Scriptures and the power of God. Two things. These two things shape my perspective and determine the relationship I have towards Jesus. I’ve got choices to make and my decisions rest upon my knowledge and interpretation of the Scriptures and my understanding and reliance on the power of God.
Make no mistake, if I do not truly know the Scriptures, if I do not really trust the power of God, I am setting myself up for failure and disappointment of every kind.
