Audacious Faith

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” -Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

 

Faith might be defined as great attempts founded in great expectations. Most of the time, I grossly underestimate God. My natural tendency is to carefully live my life in a safe way that doesn’t really require any great move of God-and certainly does not expect God to do impossible things.

 I want to believe more of God than that.

I believe that God wants to do impossible things, and I want to live my life with an expectant, audacious faith that gives Him a chance to do them. My blog is titled “Audacious Faith” not because I understand what that looks like, but because I want to learn. To that end, I am living in Dakar, Senegal sharing the gospel with Muslim college students that don’t have access to it. The fact that I have moved to Africa does not at all mean that I am living my life with audacious faith—it simply means that I am now breathing African air. I hope that God is building that kind of faith in me-and that He might use some of my stories about what He is doing to build that kind of faith in you, as well.

My team and I-you'll get to know all of these people fairly well as you read. From left to right, meet Ben, Cash, Christy and Dayton!
