Welcome Gilmour Family and Friends to Our Capital Campaign Site,
This is brand new. It is going to get used and updated regularly and we hope will be a vehicle to pass along information that you need to know. The logo too, will identify information about the Campaign.
On this day in November of 2019, I am certain that God planned my days leading up to this one, preparing me so that I could be utilized by Him for now! Many of you know that I am a believer, a thinker, a learner, a story teller, a teacher and a doer! All of which are needed for this project, but never have I used them this way before. So, here I am the face of the Capital Campaign, Oh so willing and yet Oh so lacking! And there it is, my part. God’s part is to provide all that I can’t do. He truly went before, preparing others too. We are now a group, a “village”, sharing our expertise, volunteering our time and feeling the excitement of being used by God, seeing a piece of this puzzle drop into place, in His Time.
Is our timeline clear? No. Is it clear what a next step should be? Sometimes. Are roadblocks slowing us down? For sure. But even though there are more things we don’t know than we do know, right now, we are pressing in prayerfully, knowing the answer or person will come.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now Faith is the assurance of the things we hope for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality”.
From Dr. Tony Evans, “Faith is acting like it is so, even when it is not so, so that it might be so, simply because God said so.”
Together we are entering into a season of the unknown. Perhaps the biggest adventure Gilmour has ever experienced. The world would tell us to be afraid, doubtful, overwhelmed, confused and divided.
What I know is, we have all been on our journeys of preparation for NOW! It is God we are listening to, NOT, the world. He has brought this cast of characters together to accomplish the expansion of His Kingdom. We are all different and Thank God, we are! We are Bible teachers and learners and interested in growing up in Christ.
So, here we are, all in a different place in our walk with the Lord, but willing to be molded, improved, and be an active participant in this “growth spurt”! Although the money is not “in hand” it is “within reach”. It is not seen, but with us doing our parts and God doing His Part, we can expect it will be! While we practise faith, our trust in God will grow, allowing Him to do more through us, resulting in an amazing adventure for Gilmour to be His Star looking over Selwyn County.
To all my brothers and sisters, we are here together in this window of time that our Heavenly Father planned. We can believe and have faith that this will be a growing season for His Kids and for His Kingdom. Buckle Up, we’re on our way!
Be Assured, God Reigns!
