[called] "Don't be afraid to step into your calling"
So many of us are so afraid to step into the calling God has placed in our hearts. But what we're failing to realize is that when you refuse to step into your calling, you could be holding someone back from moving forward.
Let me elaborate — I heard a story from Chris Durso, youth pastor of Misfit NYC/ Christ Tabernacle; his older brother Adam was youth pastor at first and there came a season where his brother was called to leave youth ministry and do more of the adult ministry, so feeling the call from God Adam asked Chris to take over. Chris ignores this calling for a long time, which meant Adam couldn't move forward in this new ministry because Chris refused to step up. This creates such a roadblock in the church some weren't able to comprehend it.. In short, Chris finally stepped up as youth pastor.. But now runs one of the largest youth ministries in his area! I think they average 800+ kids a night
and honestly I am so blessed by hearing Chris Durso speak every week! —
Don't be afraid to step into your calling, stop being fearful. Reach where God wants you to reach.
You were called and chosen with a specific purpose, God has already validated it within you, so stop questioning it.
Stop debating it in your head or discussing your pro's and cons , you are called for greatness.
It doesn't matter how you feel about it, or what anyone else says. No one can stop a movement from God, not even you.
I know, because I doubt and question myself even down to this very second on the calling God has in my life and youth ministry. I understood the calling 2/3 years ago but since have found almost every excuse NOT TO. Eventually, some how or way I always find my way back, no matter how hard I fight it.
But see once you stop fighting with Jesus, and you let him have his way in your life he will do his part! He won't let you fall, he will provide every way for you! He will open up the paths—
