Stepping Out in Faith

Sometimes you just have to have faith that God will help you when he gives you a nudge to do his will.

Daily Prompt: All About Me February 13, 2013


Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you. This is my response to yesterday’s prompt:

When I first started blogging, it was in response to our church’s need for someone to take over the website. I contemplated this for several weeks before offering to rise to this challenge. I had never run a website before and I had a lot to learn, but nobody else was coming forward to take the job.

After much prayerful consideration, I felt that I was being called by God to “Step Out in Faith”. I knew that God would provide the skills I needed to complete the task at hand. The blog was a result of my feeling of God’s tug to have faith in him. I felt that this was something I needed to share with others to challenge them to step out in faith also.

 

Operation Christmas Child October 19, 2012


I attend the Church of Christ at Milan, in Indiana. For the second year, we are participating in the Operation Christmas Child ministry sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse. Last year, as a church family, we donated 47 filled shoe boxes! The shoe boxes are filled with everyday items that are very much appreciated by the children in countries all over the world who receive them. This year our goal is to fill 100 shoe boxes for this outreach. Collection week will be November 12-19, 2012. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, check out the website for a list of suggestions for items to include and how to pack the boxes: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/ . Please be in prayer for the success of this project. If you live in the Milan, Indiana area and would like to participate you may contact the church office at 812-654-2177 or our website at www.milanchurch.com . If you live far from us, there is a link on the OCC website that will help you find a drop off site near you! Let’s all get involved and see how God touches this outreach project!

 

Don’t Let Satan Wreak Havoc in Your Life May 28, 2012

Have you ever thought that God was giving you a clear sign that things were supposed to go a particular way in life, but for some reason or other it just didn’t turn out that way? It is so disconcerting when that happens. Then you’re trying to figure out what happened? Did you misunderstand or is Satan trying to step in and mess things up? He does that sometimes, you know. He will do anything to take God’s people off course if he sees them making progress toward winning new souls for the harvest. When things like this happen, we need to take a step back and evaluate what it is that God wants. It’s His church after all. Go to God in prayer and ask him to give you discernment to be able to see what His will is. I believe, if we ask and then truly listen for His answer, He will lead us in the direction He wants us to go.

I leave you with this thought for the day: “When the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us, I believe we gain a built-in inclination to take our concerns and needs to the Lord in prayer.” -Shirley Dobson
