God, Please dont move on.

I read this blog from Elevation Church pastor Steven Furtick. Talk about hitting home. The last thing that I want is to miss what God wants to do through us. I was almost brought to tears in thinking that it is possible to miss out on the timing of God because of fear or a lack of courage. I am asking anyone who will read this to pray for Beth and I as we begin to make decisions for our future. Pray that we will always be reminded of Joshua 1:8 "Be strong and courageous, dont be terrified, dont be discouraged, for the Lord our God will be with us wherever we go."

here was the blog.

The lifetime of the opportunityJuly 30th, 2008
“The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity.”
Leonard Ravenhill

Every opportunity has an expiration date. Exceptional people, churches, and businesses possess the agility to move at the speed of God. This usually means merging into oncoming traffic at breakneck speed.

A lot of people I know are more fearful of making a wrong move than making no move at all. Not me. I’ve been alive long enough to know that if I just sit at the intersection after God has given a green light, He’ll only honk a few times before He passes me by in the other lane. Doesn’t mean He’ll stop loving me or stop using me. It just means that that opportunity is gone. Forever.
If you are currently considering an great, godly, risky opportunity, consider this:The cost of missing out can be greater than the cost of messing up.The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity.

Go. Go to Boston. Now.

I lived there quite a few years back and it was extremely difficult to find a place to worship.
