Living the adventure of trust and obedience
May 18, 2011
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will act.
I remember how I used to wake up every morning and watch the sun rise over the ocean at our home in Florida. The church I pastored, which was right on the Atlantic Ocean, was a wonderful place with such wonderful people. It felt like Deb and I had been on a honeymoon throughout all our days there. We had no desire, no thought, and no contemplation of ever wanting to leave.
So when I first heard from a pastoral search committee in Texas, it was a call from out of nowhere. But as I began speaking with the committee chair, I sensed in my heart that God was in this. And after many conversations and much prayer, Deb and I came to a place where we had to say, “Lord, we’re simply going to trust you.”
It soon became abundantly clear that God was calling us to leave our Florida home for me to pastor a church in Texas. And today, that church has seen tremendous growth and is doing things for the Kingdom that I never could’ve imagined! But it took Deb and me years of trust and obedience for God to bring us to where we are today.
Maybe God’s calling you out of your comfort zone and into the unknown. No matter where he calls you, live each day in trust and obedience to him and he’ll take you places you’ve never imagined!
LIVE EACH DAY IN FULL TRUST AND OBEDIENCE TO GOD AND YOU’LL EXPERIENCE HIS POWER IN AMAZING WAYS!

At some point, everyone goes through a difficult season, left wondering when God would come through. That’s why I want to send you my new booklet, God’s Promises for Doubt-Filled Days.
In this booklet, I share how the tragedy of my father’s murder revealed to me God’s steady comfort during times of trial. And I share in this booklet the four promises God makes as you search for comfort in the midst of your doubts.
God’s Promises for Doubt-Filled Days is my gift to thank you for your online donation to PowerPoint today, so please request it when you give.
It’s my prayer this resource will help you see how God works his good plans in you—especially during doubt-filled days!
