Make A Step!

Opportunity is a parade. Even as one chance passes, the next is a fife and drum echoing in the distance. 
                         ~Robert Brault
 
But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.
                   ~ 1 Peter 2:9-10
 
     Last night I prayed for Christians who have been captured and imprisoned for their faith.  Normally I would not mention this, but I awoke so certain that the prayer needed to be prayed.  For courage.  For courage, that the people would see their opportunity to escape and not be afraid to go.
     So often I have waited past the first and second promptings of the Spirit of God.  I have waited for the third and then hesitate once more.
     If the Lord prompts you, take that step.  In His name.  Just one.  You can do it!  Today, I pray for you!
 
I made a step- Mighty Clouds of Joy
 
Because of Him,
