The Next Step

Have you ever had the feeling that God wanted you to do something, but you just did not feel like doing it? I have had that feeling the last couple of months, and with everything else I have had to deal with health-wise, I just could not believe that God was asking me to take the next step now. The bottom line is that I was just being disobedient (1)because I did not feel well, and (2) because it involves doing something that I am not comfortable doing.

The past couple of months I have been feeling that God wants me to get out and give my testimony. Writing this blog is one thing, but He has impressed upon me that reading about miracles is one thing; people sometimes need to see and hear from the miracle. Right now, I can really relate to Moses. God wanted Moses to go to Pharaoh and lead His people out of Egypt. Moses' excuse was "God, I am slow of speech and just not good at that."

People who know me really well know that I am an in-the-shadows kind of guy. I don't like being out front of a group of people and especially talking to a group of people. I have, on occasion, forced myself to speak to a group, but it really pushes my comfort zone. So, like Moses, I am just going to trust God to provide the words, directions, and opportunities to present His message.

If you would be interested in me giving my testimony to your group, please e-mail me at and we will see how we can make it happen.
