My Title: Don't Just Stand There. WORK!
My Verse: 3-5
"3For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. 4 And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts to the LOVE of God and to the steadfastness of Christ."
In December of 2019 God told me He was pulling the funding from JI. I incorrectly assumed that meant we had funding right around the corner for Famplify. In February we were connected with a promise of funding which never materialized. - Heather and I have wanted to quit in the past but never more than August. I came home from a meeting with several executives who saw too much risk in the future of Famplify's business model. They were so much smarter and more experienced than I, I felt so inadequate. Our financial situation had my wife up against the ropes too. For the first time we both ran out of gas to continue on. - Then God showed up... again. Because He is faithful. Literally brought rain for a late monsoon. Heather prayed for a sign to continue to encourage me to continue and He sent her lightening. I prayed for renewed strength and as soon as I finished my prayer Heather told me the story of how He brought her lightening as a sign that we were supposed to continue on and not quit... even though we had no idea what that meant. - For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. < He brought me this verse one year after He started this message of toil and labor. He is SO faithful. God. I NEVER cease to fail in trusting you with my whole heart. I am so sorry. Thank you for continuing to faithfully teach and love me like a Father.
