I have now been in Slovenia for about a week and it feels SO good to be here. God continues to work in my heart and after meeting and seeing many people in the past week after a year it is evident that God is working in the hearts of those here as well. Some pretty stinking awesome stuff. It is making me pumped for every single day here.
Currently we are working on and preparing for our first camp coming soon..
This video was a recap of last year’s fusion camp and it was such a BIG highlight of the summer last summer and I am SO beyond pumped for this year’s.
As I am preparing for the camps for the summer I am in a study of the New Testament for the summer and something has stuck out to me in the Gospels this time around.
Prayer needs to be BOLD. Like B-O-L-D. BOLD.
And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”Matthew 14:28-31, ESV
Great story, right? Go back and read it again.
Something that sticks out to me strongly when reading this is Peter’s boldness in saying “command me.” That is kind of nuts. To invite commandment into your life. That is convicting.. like “clutch my heart” or “oh crap.” I don’t talk to God like that.
Is my faith too small to even be bold in asking for a command? Is there fear in that? I don’t know..
If you have read my last few blogs you may know that I am on a “yes, and” craze right now and that is true! But my boldness in asking God for commandments and opportunities is missing. Okay, let’s change that.
I am going to pray impossible prayers. Ask God to command me into the waters so that I may serve Him and love others as He has called me to. I am going to pray more boldly. Ask that God sets a fire to the movement of Jesus in Slovenia and the rest of Eastern Europe. It is bold prayers. I am going to pray these prayers until they are answered or until I am dead.
What a mindset right? THAT is BOLD.
That does not mean it is easy though. It takes practice. Nourishment. Growth.
Okay then. Let’s do it. What is holding me back? My unbelief? Dear God, help my unbelief.
Yeah, maybe my blogs can get vulnerable but I love it. It pushes me to love deeper and more boldly.
This week was an awesome week of meeting up with young people and the ministry team. Pray that this next week these meetings continue to happen with young people. Pray that Fusion Camp is overwhelmed with young people. Pray the impossible prayers. Pray for me, that I may grow into what God has for me.
