I tend to be a planner, a controller, and a details person. In the past, I have tended to operate in the natural, not leaving much room for God to show up in supernatural ways. Because of all of this, this leap of faith is especially hard for me. I’m learning to let go, to have supernatural faith, to trust God even when it doesn’t make sense to me. Some people might think this irresponsible, but for us, right now, it is a step of obedience. A step into a calling that we can no longer run from and deny. I spent a few weeks a little scared by this, but am so glad that the Lord has brought me to a place of complete peace amidst the unknown. I have been asking God to give me the spiritual gift of supernatural faith for many months now, and Jeremy has jokingly (sort of) hinted that this is my chance to use that gift... that supernatural faith involves trusting in things unseen and taking steps that don't make sense to the natural mind.
So here we are, stepping into the unknown. Believing that the Lord will make our path straight and lead us. Desperately seeking Him in that. Desperately seeking Him with our whole hearts so that we may have something to offer others... the only thing that matters... His love, and power overflowing out of us.
We are in the beginning stages of pursuing non-profit status for our ministry, Bastion Ministries. We are in the beginning stages of trying to raise support for our family to live off of.
We would love your prayers throughout this process! This is how you can currently be praying;
- that all of the details/ administrative/ organizational stuff will be worked out smoothly
- that no plans would be our own, but that each step would be in complete submission to the Father's will
- for provision
- for God to show up in big ways... that people would be saved, healed, and set free by the name of Jesus. that He would use us in this, and that His name would be known and praised throughout this city, and the world, as a result
- for protection for our home and family as we step out and engage in battle with an enemy who has come to steal, kill, and destroy
