Here we are in issue 2, if it isn’t obvious already our vision is simple, to share truth.
So let’s get into this edition. I hope it gives you a good mix of life, joy, the odd knowing and nodding chuckle and cause you to ask the question (like it did me): “what does God want to say to me through this, right here right now?”.
A new hero of the faith is Maral Assadzadeh. In this issue she tells us about her life; growing up in Iran and how she used to hide her faith, being forced to seek asylum in the UK, and now working for Fusion reaching out to university students. She’s a total inspiration.
And finally our cover story features Caitlin Zick of Moral Revolution who talks about purpose and vision.
Do I want adventure or not? Am I after safe secure and satisfying? I wonder. I want to wander. To open up my day. To let God have his say. Where would I go, what would I do?
God, what would a day off spent with you be like?
I’m trying to think if there has ever been a time when I’ve said to God, “here’s my day, it’s all yours”.
Disappointingly no. Possibly parts of days, fractions or even minutes where I’ve said “Lord lead me, I’m open to you let’s go on an adventure” but no, not a whole day. Never.
I’ve got to ask myself why? Why the flipping heck not? I’m someone who wants God to lead me and he does, I know I’m walking in his purpose for my life, absolutely; but I’ve never thought to hand him my day and leave the agenda totally up to him. Ever.
I remember watching an interview of a guy who’d prayed for people in the supermarket after acting on a whisper from the Holy Spirit; and as a result someone who was deaf heard for the first time. I thought, “wow I’d love to do that”, but never acted on it. Never really been intentional about it. Never set aside time to pray or booked in a day.
Quite frankly, what am I waiting for???
“He told them, “You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business. What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit. And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria, even to the ends of the world.”
Acts 1:7-8 MSG
Damned if we do, damned if we don’t.
But I won’t I won’t I won’t allow that to stop me from walking in my destiny. The path God has for me.
The straight and narrow is wide and free. The bumpy and rocky is all there for me. If the road was easy it wouldn’t be that pleasing. No ups no downs. No laughs no frowns.
Round and round would get you down.
The road less travelled is the one for me, written down in the book of life. Free to explore. Free to ignore the haters, the backbiters and the fighters.
Be mighty in the land, not standing on sinking sand.
What shall we do? Throw in the shoe that’s what. Put in our lot. Go all in because what have we gotta lose?
ONE word that’s been on my mind recently is perseverance. To get to where I want to go will take determination, one-mindedness. The route most probably won’t be easy. There will be obstacles in the way and things to overcome.
But. That is part of the point. The point is the point. I need sharpening. Defining. The sharper the point, the more accurate it is.
The times when I have to really focus, really concentrate, just keep going no matter what. Those are the times that sharpen and define me.
So I’m going to keep going. Not slow up now. Not stop. Keep my focus. Fix my faith, fix my mind on the task ahead. It will be worth it.
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honour, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”
Hebrews 12:1-3 MSG
