Take a Leap of Faith

Below is an excerpt from my guest post for the Everyday Ordinary Story.

God tugged on my heart as I read the email.

Three different women had heard the Gospel message because of this Christian ministry. As the year was coming to an end, they were asking for donations. 

I had given to the ministry before, but this time I felt God asking me to give substantially more. 

Have you ever felt God asking you to do something that was out of your comfort zone?

Maybe God has placed it on your heart to lead a Bible study or start a ministry at your church. Perhaps He wants your family to serve together. Maybe God has asked you to give of your time or your finances. He is inviting you to say, “Yes!” and take a step of faith.

Friend, this is how I felt that day in December. God had clearly placed a specific number in my mind, and He wanted me to faithfully give to this ministry. 

I had a choice: take a leap of faith or play it safe.

As I look back over my ministry, I am thankful that I chose to take the leap. Now I can see how that one act of obedient giving has opened doors that I could never have opened. It has allowed me to meet people that I would have never had the opportunity to meet.

I often think back to that day in December and I wonder, what if I had said no? Honestly, I would have missed all the blessings God had planned for me, and sadly I would not have even known it.

How many times have we missed a divine appointment from God because we wanted to play it safe?
