It always makes me giggle how God lines stuff up when he’s trying to teach me something. He has the BEST sense of timing!
Last night we had our monthly worship leaders’ meeting and we watched a session from the Global Leadership Summit DVD called “IT: How churches and leaders can get IT and keep IT” by a speaker called Craig Groeschel and part of the talk was about shaking off failure and stepping out in faith to do what God has given you a vision and a passion for. This morning I sat down to spend my time alone with God, working on my Hebrews experiment and I’m up to chapter 11 where it talks about what faith looks like, what God thinks about faith, and how he promises to reward us if we have faith and seek him earnestly (with oomph and energy and proactivity – yup I made that word up) and has some concrete examples of dudes that walked by faith and were rewarded for it.
I just love it when God lines things up like that. So very, very cool.
