There are times in all of our lives when God will ask us to step out in faith. We don't understand it. We can't see how a situation is going to work out, but in the midst of not knowing, we can decide to trust Him. These times are necessary in order for our faith to be matured. Being comfortable in the unknown is a powerful act of trust.

i started listening to you when i was struggling with life and what feels like overwhelming obstacles and I’ve listened everyday. Just last week and yesterday I know GOD is on the throne. both of my daughters were in car accidents a week apart. thank GOD no one else was involved. Both cars were a total loss and it is By the grace of God- both of my daughters are alive. the Lord has control. # Praise God.
