Came across this blog entry by Perry Noble. He asks:
1. Go to campuses and speak to young women. I have no idea how this will come about but I have been asking around how I can get more involved in campus ministry. I am not sure if I am doing enough but God has always come through for me in terms of opening doors. The last thing I want to do is be overzealous and go ahead of God. I know somewhere down the road the vision He has given me will come to pass. It's scary, nervewracking. But I know I need to step out in faith if this vision is to become reality.
2. Move out. Again I am torn. I don't want to just go for it. On the other hand, there's a fear in me that I am staying home because this is my comfort zone. I guess what I and my two other future housemates are looking for is favor. Then, we will know if this is something God wants us to do now.
If only courage were something that God can just hand to those who need it. But for courage to come, we need to step out and obey what God has called us to do, no matter how frightening, how uncertain, how utterly uncomfortable it may be.
Psalm 34:4 says "I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."
I take hold of that truth as I face the fears that come with obeying what God has called me to do.
