Ms. Heidi Baker (part 2)

Notice how willing this woman is to fail. A great reminder that the key to success is failure! And the key to overcoming failure, is, yep, you guessed it, failure. Learning from our mistakes makes us God-strong, because it teaches us to be God-dependent. History is being made by this simple, God loving woman who calls the Holy Spirit her “best friend” and preaches in the darkest and deadliest parts of Africa to groups of hundreds of obviously frustrated Muslims who are more concerned with trying to hit her with rocks than hearing about Jesus Christ.

She does all this, and just giggles as she re-tells of His Love. She weeps and giggles because we just don´t get it…we don´t get how simple it is to just abandon everything and just say “yes” to God in all the ways we can. I´ll admit, I´m ever learning this simplicity and can´t honestly imagine how I could ever look spiritually like a Heidi Baker, but I bet you, at some point, she was saying the same thing to this God we both follow.

Here´s to the God of epic proportions…the God of intimate nooks, crannies and cosmos.

About justingunter

I'm recently 29 years old, recently married and ready to change the world for God. He has called me to be a missionary! This means more than just changing zip codes and living in countries where I struggle (for a while) speaking the language the locals dream in. It means a lifestyle of sacrifice, audacious Hope and above all, a desire for Jesus simply because He is who He is. I moved to Franklin, TN in October 15th of 2012 and expect this to be the first of many changes for the great calling on the Gunter's life. Side note...I dig being married. It helps when you're married the best woman ever! Teale and I feel called to plant churches, combat sex trafficking and be a place of refuge and Holy sojourn to all who would seek to join alongside us for good or for a season. For now, Ol' Rocky Top is our home, Zoey is our Great Dane and we, the Gunters, love Jesus with all we have.
