Make a Decision

Yes I am an impulsive person… I make decisions quickly. Of course I pray about it but if something seems right, I move ahead in it unless or until the Lord stops me. This frightens some and encourages others. I am blessed to find that someone like David Mainse (100 Huntley Street) agrees with this strategy.

Here is a snippet from his wonderful new blog, www.100words.ca

“If I believe that something is good to do, I move ahead. But at the same time, I pray that if what I’m about to do is not God’s will, He’ll step in and stop events before they progress. Even on our wedding day on the way to the church I prayed this: “Lord, I believe that Norma-Jean is to be my wife and I’m going ahead with the marriage, and I love her very much. But if this is not Your perfect plan, please stop it right now.”

Remember. When we won’t make a decision, we have actually made the decision.

Tribute to David Mainse

 

My husband and I happened to be invited to a wedding that included many a Christian ‘bigwig” guest. Someone dropped a tissue on the carpet. The bride and groom made their way down the aisle after their “I do’s” and guests followed. Many of the ‘celebrity’ attendees caught their toe on that tissue but traipsed over it. Not David Mainse. He stopped, picked it up and put it in his pocket.

That small action told us all we needed to know about David Mainse and for that matter, all we needed to know about the other guests, including ourselves.

Fifty years ago, David Mainse had a vision for Christian television. He began a show which eventually became 100 Huntley Street, the daily Canadian Christian TV program. To date, the amazing statistics include 9000 daily shows, 17,000 personal stories and more than 9,000,000 calls on the 24/7 prayer lines.

God showed up big time, but first a man prayed, obeyed and stayed in God’s will. I invite you to follow his blog, 100Words.ca as “retired” David Mainse continues to share his heart for God.
