WordFilled Wednesday prayer request
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and he will direct your step.
I chose these images this morning and this verse to illustrate the struggles that I am facing.
I have mentioned here before that it is my prayer that the desires of my heart come from God. That those desires are placed there by him. That my heart is not open to distraction from the evil one. That...
...Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.
It is my prayer that the decisions we make personally and for the ministry are plans that God has given us. That he will make our path straight and that he will show us where he wants us to step and where to go.
I included the photo of the sand because I pray that God is carrying us now. That the absence of two sets of footprints illustrates his holding us and carrying us through.
Dear one's I ask you to lift me and my Cowboy up. We have some big decisions to make.
Those decisions include where we will have "our" church membership and where will be able to be discipled, and encouraged.
These decisions include new doors that are opening for the chapel ministry that we do on Sunday at a youth prison facility.
Five years ago I felt God leading us to partner with a larger church in our area to plant a church for youth.
And now five years later it seems the doors are opening. A large church....no Huge church in our area is considering adopting our ministry. The amount of support that could be gained from a partnership is overwhelming and exciting.
The only thing is it is not the church that I feel God leading me. We have visited this church half a dozen times. And each time I walk away with the feeling I don't like it here.
And so there is my personal dilema. As a ministry this is a wonderful opportunity. Personally I question.
And so dear friends I ask you to please pray for me. Please pray for our ministry.
And please if you have words of wisdom or encouragement please, please leave them here.
Many Blessings and Happy WFW and Blessing to all the WFW participants today. Thanks Pennyhttp://pennyraine.com for hosting this week.
