Last night was volunteer appreciate at newhope church, No better way to spend a Friday. Laughter is truly good for a tired soul. I truly believe we have the most creative Pastoral staff in the entire Triangle. They know how to overload the senses and ensure you enjoy every minute of it.
In my over stimulated and yes up past my bedtime state, I had a conversation with a girlfriend, sister in Christ late last night about trusting God, obedience, and letting go. The Holy Spirit reminded me of a truth, and I shared it with her. I have often heard messages about trusting God and the reality of it is, that if we call ourselves Christian we have no choice. Salvation takes trust, water baptism takes trust, tithing takes trust, loving each other takes trust, praying takes trust and so on, and God invented it all. As hard as it is to comprehend, we must die to live for and with God.
Hebrews 11:1-3 (New International Version) Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
