I have to admit that when the Lord gave me the idea to start a MyGFA campaign to support one hundred unsponsored Bridge of Hope Children, He dropped an enormous blob of faith on me. The blob of faith was so big that I thought, “This will be so easy. Just a piece of cake for God and me to handle.”
Now, one of the things about God’s enormous blobs of faith is that their effects only last until God has us where He wants us to be. Then, our blobs of faith evaporate and we are forced to operate out of our inner faith.
Yikes, right? What do we do then?
This is how I handle it:
I remind the Lord everyday that this was His idea, not mine. And because it’s His idea, it’s His responsibility to bring the money in. It’s His reputation that’s on the line because, Lord knows, my reputation stinks. If He doesn’t move on behalf of these one hundred unsponsored kids, I will fail. So, Lord, my trust is in You. What do You want me to do next?
