Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.

These words are quoted from Corrie ten Boom, a Dutch woman whom God used to change the trajectory of so many people’s lives.  She and her family were part of an underground operation that hid Jews during World War II.  They were eventually discovered and sent to the concentration camps and even there she did God’s work to change the lives of so many people.  She survived and continued her work as a missionary who constantly listened to God’s Voice and spread His Gospel wherever she went.  I consider her one of my heroes.   In my own life, I have always looked for the “certain” and “sure” things but these are not the things that faith are made of.  It is when we take a leap into the hands of our Mighty God which is the truest of all hiding places – that we experience and are exercising faith

Hebrews 10:21-23
and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
