Challenged by Oswald

I was reading My Utmost for His Highest last night and I came across something that really challenged me, but I liked it. Here's an excerpt:
"Many of us are faithful to our ideas about Jesus Christ, but how many of us are faithful to Jesus Himself? Faithfulness to Jesus means that I must step out even when and where I can't see anything (see Matthew 14:29). But faithfulness to my own ideas means that I first clear the way mentally. Faith, however, is not intellectual understanding; faith is a deliberate commitment to the Person of Jesus Christ, even when I can't see the way ahead."

I really do believe that we're called to step out where the path is dark and live by faith rather than by sight. It's challenging because as humans, we're worry warts and control freaks. That being said...we're also a New Creation. It all depends on which life you want to identify with I suppose.
Anyhoo, anyone who saw the Ember Days and enjoyed them should go to and download their new EP for free! It's so good! There's a lot of instrumental but they also do a cover of "It is Well." Janell has such a pretty voice.
