Celebrating Milestones of Faith

I remember being at an inter-collegiate conference while still at school. I had been converted about a year, and I was taken to this wonderful gathering of Christian youth inbetween semesters. I sat under evangelical teaching from the epistles of Paul by a master Bible teacher. At the end of the conference there was a call to set our sails for missions. I didn't know what it was all about, but under the insistence of the Spirit that night I was ready to do whatever God wanted me to do with my life. But I remember there was also a deep conviction inside me that I needed to "renounce any hope but this one" if I were to impact my world. I sat down by the side of my friend Elspeth at that final meeting as the speaker called for renewed commitment and allowed God to deal with my ambitions and dreams as he would. I was at the point where I was, "exceedingly reached and wept much!"

Have you had milestones in your life of faith? They will of course be different from mine and from every one else's. All of us being unique creatures will have our special way of understanding what God is saying to our soul. The way it happens doesn't matter ?That' it happens does! Each in our different way need to come to a point of no return when we say to God: "Anytime, anywhere, any how!"
