Don’t you want a testimony
Haven’t you always looked at someone who had a testimony and wished that could be you, wished you could have a powerful testimony like that
Haven’t you always wanted to speak about Jesus with such love, and passion, with a fervency, and an understanding that God really can do anything, can deliver anyone, and can actually radically change someone’s life forever
Haven’t you always wanted to see the miraculous and move in signs and wonders
Haven’t you always wanted that
Didn’t you ask God for that when you were young
It’s baby steps
To whom much is given much is required
To be faithful in much you must first be faithful in the little
You got to start somewhere
and God wants you to start with your spouse
or your x-spouse
You see true love, I mean true true love, the kind of love that Jesus has, requires Faith to do it. If its easy to do it then that’s not the same love, it just doesn’t carry the same power or weight as Love that actually requires Faith to do it. The reason this kind of love requires Faith is because you have no idea if your going to get a return on your investment. In fact it’s likely that your not.
but that’s no excuse
So come on people you can do this
You want to go to Africa but God wants you to go home
He wants you to start with your family first
and Love some more
Not in a weird way…honestly weird ways don’t require faith
Start making dinner
Folding it and then putting it away
Coming home early from work instead of finding reasons to stay so late
Putting gas in your spouses car so they don’t have to do it in the morning before work
Buying them their special snack that they love
but then refusing to get bent out of shape if they don’t say thank you and appreciate you
You see true love doesn’t require something back
Jesus died for some people that will never love Him, some people he died for will never run up to Him and say thank you for taking a beating for me, but you know what He did it anyway, He died for their sins too.
Stop trying to manipulate
Get a job
or quit your job
Stop trying to change them
Stop being the Holy Spirit
Listen to the Holy Spirit
You risk everything
You lay down your life
You do what it takes
You start going to counseling
and be willing to pay for it
Stop keeping score
What was intended for evil God intended for good
Signs and wonders are coming but there coming to your front door
So if your reading this and saying, “I can’t do this” then I say to you, “You can!” Darin says, “You can!” Even Macy says, “You can” The Sims know just exactly how hard this is and what you are possibly facing if you do this but you can do it! God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him and that is what is required, to do what we are asking you to do. So if you know me or know Darin or know someone who knows us or just happened upon this blog then I’m talking to you, God is talking to you!
Be courageous and go get your testimony!
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
And without Faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him.
Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with little will be dishonest with much.
