This trust journey began when I looked out our front window one day and the Lord said, “Cut down your front tree.” My husband wasn’t thrilled with the revelation, but I heard it five times. I didn’t need to know why. I knew the Lord was telling me to do it. A week later, as I walked downstairs into our makeshift ministry center, the Lord said, “Finish it.” It took one time, one breath, to know He was speaking. I didn’t ask twice. I didn’t understand why after 15 years of ministering and now not ministering out of the room, He was calling me to finish it, but I did. A couple of weeks ago, it was officially done. I go down there and it is so anointed. I know there is a purpose, yet I don’t know what it is.
He is calling me to trust without knowing why. There are two other things; more recently, He has been calling me to lay down without it making sense, without knowing why, but I will be obedient.
This summer, He called one of my daughters through the same season and now, this week, my other daughter. He wants us to live by faith and not by sight. He asks for obedience and discipline to do what He is asking and trust Him in the process. We want to know why, what are the results, why would you call us to do this or that, but He doesn’t always tell us why at the moment.
My ministry center is finished. It has the best of everything. I know He wants to accomplish something. I don’t know what, but I know I will write and carry out the vision, and though it tarries, I will wait for it and trust.
