Has God asked you to do something that you have never done before? Is the thought of it a bit scary and is that fear and strangeness of the task holding you back?
Take a look at this video, of a 4th grade (9 or 10 years old) girl who makes her first ski jump. Scary? Yes! Exhilarating? Definitely!

That is what the will of God seems like sometimes. But without letting go and allowing God to bear you along, you will accomplish little for him.
Let go! You can do it, with Christ as your helper! Let the momentum build and then leap forward into God’s perfect will for you. That sure is exhilarating!


This video tells the story of the iconic poster. Thank you Denny Burk for bringing it to my attention.  It reminds me of something that I have been learning recently.

How wonderful to know that we can experience the deep calm that comes through trusting implicitly in God, whatever our circumstances.

Today’s post is a real musical treat. I first heard this song at The Faith Mission’s convention in Edinburgh. The singing nearly lifted the roof of the tent, and my heart nearly burst with joyful praise.

I hope you enjoy this life studio recording of Come people of the risen King, sung by the composer, Stuart Townend. Listen out for the great Celtic-sounding intro and bridge, which get my Scottish heart pumping!

Today I came across, a site whose tag line is How the gospel can OVERFLOW from you to others.

A recent post there included a three minute video about an opportunity to witness which will come the way of most of us every week – on a Monday!

Kevin Harney (author of Organic Outreach for Ordinary People) spells it out for us.  Anyone can do it. We don’t need to have Bible College training, or be confident with apologetics. Probably all of us have this golden opportunity most weeks.

So, be prepared for it, by giving three minutes of your time to view this intriguing video.

On the OverflowToday site there is also a link for a discussion guide , or an audio download of this brief item.
