My husband and I embarked on the craziest, most impossible faith venture of our lives four years ago. God called us to plant a new church in a Muslim city where, humanly speaking, no one is interested in the gospel.
We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. That was a good thing because had we known, we probably wouldn’t have said “yes” to God in the first place.
Follow this link to join me over at God-Sized Dreams and read about what we learned when we took our biggest faith risk yet.
I’m also linking up with Meredith Bernard’s Woman2Woman and Jennifer Dukes Lee’s #TellHisStory today.

Thanks for being here today. Yes, we can trust the Giver of our dreams for sure!

Hi Betsy, I came over from this article. It is a beautiful one. God Bless.
Living the Christian life is laid upon dying to self but to live for the One who died for us. With respect to dream, we have to make sure that God is always at the center if we don’t to get into serious trouble that could have been avoided down the road. Unfortunately, we as believers have a tendency to do things according to our own human understanding and effort instead of relying upon God for guidance.
You are absolutely right. It’s so easy to make our own plans or else to slowly put ourselves at the center of our dreams rather than God. Thanks for commenting today.
First, you welcome. The point is that our job is to glorify God, and this is the foremost thing that He really needs from us. If we’re willing to glorify Him by how we live our lives, He’ll get everything from us. He must be the preeminent factor in our dream, which means that anything that will not bring Him glory should not be pursued because it will not have any eternal significant.
