“Oh ye of little faith”

One of the most difficult things for me to do is witness.  I spent five years without saying much of anything to anybody.  But I came to a point where I decided enough was enough.  I wanted to be used of God to bring others to Christ.  I told God I would start right on the street where I lived.

I did not have any tracts so I wrote everything down on paper.  Then I went about passing out the papers to people on my street.  Most of them got offended.  A couple who were previously friendly walked past me angrily while out on their walk.   I could hear their feet pounding as they ignored me when I greeted them.  I began to fear.  I didn’t finish the street.  I quit.

Right afterwards I came in the house and read the devotion for that day out of the “my daily bread”.  One of the verses where I was reading was Matt. 13:14 which had the statement , ” Oh ye of little faith, wherefore did you doubt? ”

I realized when I was out there I was walking on water.  Its when I started to pay attention to the waves around me that I began to fear.

About a week later I witnessed again.  I went to a town nearby and began to witness door to door.  It was in a neighborhood that wasnt exactly safe for a white woman to be in going house to house alone, but alone I went.  Then I preached at a local conveinance store, again not something that a woman should be doing, but just proving a point that you can do anything and not be so fearful if you focus and go into with prayer.

Was I afraid?  You bet I was.  But it got easier after prayer and just doing it anyway with the fear still there.  You never know what you can do until you try.
