[We walk by faith]
I don’t normally post on both Saturday and Sunday, but I need the extra inspiration myself, so maybe you do too.
That being said, sometimes I can get lost in what Andrew and I are going through. I know God is working through it. He’s been so good to keep reminding us that He’s right there with us.
However, because we can’t always see where we’re headed or what this will accomplish, it’s easy to get discouraged. It’s easy to listen to the lies that the devil throws our way, but I know that God is using all of it. I need to be reminded that He is and He will. This is why we testify, which means to give evidence. We show what God is doing in our lives, and we share what God has done for others as well.
So I’m opening up a new category on my blog: Testify. I’m stepping out in faith on this one because I don’t have too many things lined up for this category…yet.
To get the ball rolling I want to start with a group of people who are very near and dear to my heart, even though I don’t personally know any of them: Casting Crowns. I’ve had this Mark Hall testimony sitting there for quite some time just waiting for me to use it. (That’s ironic. That’s how I feel at times–waiting to be used.)
I can’t say enough about Casting Crowns. God has used them countless times in my own life to comfort, encourage, inspire, lift my head…you name it. Whatever I’ve needed they seem to have a song that fits that bill. This is why Mark Halls testimony is so important and powerful.
I’m not the only one who has been steered by their music. If we’re willing, God truly is able. We have to believe this. He can multiply even our smallest contribution. Testifying helps us to all see a little further. It helps us to let go and trust God with our future.
P.S. You’ll love this video. Mark Hall is awesome. He has a great sense of humor.
