Boldness

I recently reviewed Altar Ego by Craig Groeschel  and was bowled over by his section on obedience.

When I was reading this, I was talking to God about this boldness and obedience business and he said quite clearly, that here  would be a time to speak boldly at a dinner party that night, he said it several times, but I thought, na that’s just me.  Blow me down if both Dave and I didn’t get asked about what we believe by two people. Now I did what I could (I wish I hadn’t had that second glass of wine) in trying to form answers that were both bold and would reach my asker.  I felt I hadn’t succeeded and started to beat myself up.  But then no I thought,( or was it the Holy Spirit?) I spoke as boldly as I could. It was a step on the way, and I am now eager to be bolder at the next prompting.

I now pray with Boldness, Dave and I WILL open a small B&B  where we will bless people who will really need a holiday, it will be a Christian outreach.  We WILL do this without debt, Dave and I WILL  be occupied and supported as we support others.

However, the effect of this prayer has had a quite different effect on me, I can see it in the small things I’m doing with my witness on the blogs and Facebook, where I can, I can’t help but speak boldly anymore!!!
