When God asks you to do something new, is this how you feel?
"Oh, I'm safe inside here....do I have to come out of my shell?"
"It's comfortable here, must I leave my current cozy life?"
"I'm not sure God, do you really want me to do that?"
I remember the first time God asked me to do something. I heard his voice. I heard it distinctly. I remember exactly where I was. I was probably ten years into being Christian.
I hesitated. I pondered. I considered.
He asked me to enter a contest on a Christian radio station. There was a deadline...I had about a month before the contest would be over. I had plenty of time; it wasn't urgent.
I considered it again. I waited. It sat on my heart.
I kept hearing the radio ad....I started considering it more.
Then God gave me the exact idea to use...he gave me the words!
Okay. I considered it again.
The idea was original and sweet, only something God could come up with.
