The First Step



Today over at Faith Barista, Bonnie is asking us the question

“How Is God Currently Calling You To Walk By Faith?”

Here is my answer to that question.

What if I’ve read it wrong? What if they disagree? Will they laugh at my naiveté?

Imagine being a first year of a subject sitting in a class of fifth years. Would you sit there quietly listening to the discussions or would you be brave enough to raise your hand to ask a question or offer an opinion?

I feel I like a first year surrounded by my fellow Christians, they know so much and I so little. If understanding was based on a love for God I would be ok but on the study of theology I stay quiet.

Yet God isn’t asking me to stay quiet he is calling me to open my heart. He is leading me towards studying in his name.

I’m frightened, I’m nervous but I’m standing strong. I’m refusing to listen to the negative voices that are trying to invade my mind.

Studying theology is a big step for me; I’ve no background in the subject except my love for God. I’m praying that will be enough to start me on my journey.

It’s going to be an investment of time and money with no guarantees but isn’t that what is meant by a Walk of Faith.

I trust there is reason God wishes for me to be on this pathway.

So this is my first step on my Walk of Faith.

  1. “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.” Proverbs 4:18

    This verse jumped out at me earlier on today- I wasn’t sure why until now! Stepping out in Faith is like setting off at the break of day – you step out in the almost dark trusting in the certainty that the sun will rise before too long. Trust in God’s calling on your life and step out with boldness! Praying for you x
