Taking the Plunge...

After a year of thinking, praying, planning and preparing, I took the plunge this morning by communicating my intent to leave to my employer. iCompass has been a blessing and I have learned a lot while working here, but "it's time for the dream to come to pass". So, effective Nov 3o, I will conclude my full time employment here. I am off to speak at a pastor's conference overseas (details later) in early December and then I'll continue to book speaking engagements and move towards full time engagement in the ministry as soon as possible.

This is yet one more step in a journey of faith. We keep telling ourselves that the wind and waves don't matter as much as walking towards Jesus, but the spray hitting your face is a little un-nerving even if your feet aren't sinking into the water. I find myself singing "Jehovah Jireh, my provider..." a lot lately. Maybe it's declaration, maybe it's affirmation, maybe it's celebration. Whatever the case, it feels good to sing it and to know that it's true!!

Love to hear from you on this one!

Gert here, Tim
....so awesome to hear how you are trusting in God as your provider...24/7, and for your next steps where He is shining His light.
I know first hand as well, that with Him everything is possible!
Without Him we'd be at the bottom of the lake/ocean...
We keep our focus on God no matter how high the waves, or how stinging the spray on our face can be...we wipe it off so we don't lose our vision of Him. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.....thank God for faith!!!
Good postings...awesome in fact...so encouraging.

Kathie (Gert)
