"Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase"
Today marks a new beginning, a new journey.
When I am unsure and doubtful, God gives affirming words of hope. He has surrounded me with encouraging people who speak his promises over me. I am so blessed to have my EBC family. My commissioning service was so encouraging, with prayers and well-wishes. The song we sang in the service, Here Am I Lord, gave me much assurance.
‘Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.’
I'm taking a step of faith, going to a place I've never been to before. But I am confident that where God guides, he provides. I am going because he is leading me. He has started the work here and will continue it in Jamaica with every person I’ll encounter.
Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
