cafe chat ~ step of faith?

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

Tell about one time in the past 5 years where you took a HUGE Step of Faith in your journey with the Lord. What was the outcome?

There have been several in the last five years. Probably more than in my entire life. Times ten.

But the one that immediately comes to mind is our step out to leave our church. We loved our church family so much. They were a rock when we were with Izzy in the hospital. Our faith and beliefs took a turn after dealing with this situation and after much studying we came to realize our beliefs just didn’t line up with what was taught at our church. We struggled with this decision for so long and tried visiting other churches looking for a fit. It just wasn’t happening. Finally, we visited a church called “Family of Faith.” The name alone appealed to us and what our search was all about. I think the first time we visited that church we knew that it was at least in the range of what we were looking for. After a visit from the Pastor shortly after our visit, we knew we had to make the move. He summed it up when he said, “You’ve already left.” In our hearts we had. Not the friends or the family, just the religion. I still love the church family there and have missed fellowshipping with them. Matt and I look at each other when the message in church is so clear to us and know by that gaze that we are in the right place… and we thank God daily for continuing to guide our journey.
