I am excited to hear that you feel God's leading into the ministry. There is no reason to fear this because if God is calling you to serve Him then you will not be fulfilled doing anything else. It has been amazing to see how you and your wife have grown in your faith. Growth like that takes a Godly husband and father. In your quest to find God's will for your life, look at the small things. Ask yourself questions like:
- "Are there areas in my church where I can serve?.
- Where does God want me right now?
- Am I currently serving where He wants?
- What am I not doing that I believe God wants me to do?
- What will take the most faith for me to do?"
Finally, talk with your Pastor or another Godly mentor. Pray for God's direction and do not be afraid to act when He gives an opportunity. When you look at Moses, Noah, Abraham etc. God gave them a command with few details. This caused them to depend more on Him during their journey. He does the same with us. Fear is okay if it moves you to action.
Romans 10:15 (HCSB) And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things!
I am praying for you both, let me know if you ever need anything or just want to talk.
So what do you think? What advice would you give this young man? What would you agree with, add or take away?
