This morning, Facebook Memories reminded me of a post I shared in 2015:
it’s always easiest to step out of the boat and walk on water when the sea is calm.
it’s the high seas that call out your faith.
be still, and know: I AM GOD.
His love never fails.
One part buying a boat, nine parts navigating the high seas.
A year ago, I was heading to Zambia for the first time.
I quit my fulltime job in February last year, when God told me to throw the net out to the other side.
At the time, I had no idea what that meant, or what would happen next, but I was determined to walk in radical obedience.
Stepping out in faith is never without challenges, but it is ALWAYS rewarding in ways I cannot describe in words.
One of the toughest challenges to date, is explaining to other Believers why the call to Missions is the MOST IMPORTANT call you’ll ever respond to.
Being a missionary does not mean you have to leave your vocation, but it does require selfless love, sacrifice, and obedience.
In 49 days, I’ll be back in Zambia for the 3rd time — this time to do AMT with Overland Missions — and I am extremely excited to see how promises and scriptures and prophetic words of more than 10 years come into fruition.
I am already amazed at the great transformation I can see in my life since crossing through the wilderness. Beyond this lies more wilderness, but it contains the Harvest of the Promised Land.
Even when the seas are rough, and when times are uncertain, hold on to the steadfast hope you have in Jesus — He is the anchor for your soul.
In all things, may you have the courage to #runwildlivefree
[Now] we have this [hope] as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whoever steps out upon it–a hope] that reaches farther and enters into [the very certainty of the Presence] within the veil, [Lev. 16:2.] ~ Hebrews 6:19
