Some things that God asks me to do are just down right scary. I don’t believe in them. It’s not what i intended. I don’t know the outcome. The list goes on. But he doesn’t ask me to do these things to question his will. He asks me trust and have faith in his plans to bring glory to his kingdom. To share his word through my story of faith, trust, loss, heartache, joy…pause and repeat. It takes …a lot of courage to do what God has called you to do and I have to be honest I don’t always follow his ways. Then I suffer. I miss out on the blessing he gives when I am obedient. I miss opportunities to share the love of Jesus and faithfulness. So each day is a new day. A day to say yes. A day to be courageous and follow him even though it’s scary. Today is the day to be salt to others. Just as Matthew 5:13 says in the message version.
Salt and Light
13 “Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.
14-16 “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”
