God was calling me to get out of my boat. At the time, my secure place was in Corporate America, making good money. However, in this position I was asked to lie, and knew that God would not honor this continued sin. I had to leave and trust in God’s plan for me. It was not easy, but I knew what God wanted me to do. I knew without a doubt that God wanted me to take a leap of faith and trust in Him.
I am grateful that the leadership at Open Door Mission took a chance on me, and have been supportive of my journey for the past eight years. I am grateful for the many friends I have made over the years. I am grateful that in my walk with Jesus, I have grown in ways I never before imagined. I am blessed to be able to serve alongside amazing coworkers. I am honored God called me to love on the hungry and hurting people in the Heartland.
Today I would like to honor each staff member at Open Door Mission, as each one has played a huge part in my journey. Thank you!
Remember this: God is with us though the winds and the sea may rage. His still, small voice is saying, “I know you’re afraid, but I love you. Get out of the boat and come to Me. I will hold you up when you begin to sink in the wind and the waves. I will hold you up and bring you safely to shore.”
Trust in that still, small voice. When God leads you to take a leap of faith, listen to Him, trust in Him, and know that He is with you through every leap you take.
