Dear Church of Veritas

I greet you in the name of our loving and powerful God.

I have heard of your struggles and your triumphs, your challenges and your lessons. I am proud to be linked to you. You have been through a lot, but you have not turned your back on God. He has been teaching you and stretching you and you have been obedient. You love those around you. You seek God's voice and His Plan. You serve without complaint. You hope and believe.

But your hope is waning. You are letting fear sneak into your thoughts, your prayers and your lives. You are missing opportunities for God to work because you fear and don't follow God entirely.

Do not lose hope. God is not done with you yet. He asks us to follow Him, but He will only show you the steps beneath your feet. You must learn to trust Him to lead and not get in front of Him. You must take the steps He asks you to take even when you don't know where it will end.

The road before you has not been traveled by many, but God has it well planed out. Travel it boldly. But don't travel it alone. This is a command! This road is not only for you, but for those around you who God loves and longs for.

You are not alone in this journey. God travels it with you, even when it feels like He is far away. And there are many who are traveling this journey with you in prayer. They are doing what they can to support you in your journey, don't get lazy and not do the work where you are.

I cannot wait to hear more from you and your progress, your adventures, your lessons, your tests, your successes, your failures, and how God uses you. I will write again soon.

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. {Hebrews 10:24-25}
