92- Willing and Obedient
December 11, 1982
Dan has been offered a position as program director at KNIS—full time! Could mean a move to Carson City. I’m sort of shaken.
We are on the brink of an adventure, a certain step of faith.
Guest speaker at church last night and this a.m. is Anthony Campolo. He is speaking on self-denial, sacrifice, giving, meekness, peacemaking, mourning over the world condition.
He was teaching us Jesus’ heart.
I have definitely come to appreciate Dan’s sincere and anointed edification of the saints on the radio. It’s not his own personality making it up. It’s a man seeking and serving a living , loving, worthy Lord, and sincerely encouraging others to do the same.
Moving is not my idea and it sounds hard. I do not care for the small town of Carson at all.
But I lay aside these for Your perfect and blessed will. That we might be in fellowship with You, that our boys would know You and Your reality.
Campolo got onto missions in today’s message.
He asked for full surrender and full commitment. Pastor Dave asked for hands of those interested in missions.
He seemed to acknowledge Dan and I. Dan gave his testimony tonight at church and some teaching. It came off well, serious, sincere, Spirit-filled. Gene gathered everyone around us to pray for KNIS job and our lives and Pastor prayed for the missions interest to be confirmed, put together, and moved along.
ONLY BY YOU, LORD! My feet are cold; my faith is small, but I am willing and obedient.
Looking back, I am in awe that one dear friend prayed about the job offer, and our faithful Pastor picked up from the Spirit about the missions calling. God, You are amazing in how You work!
