Faith and Obedience in the Path to Effectiveness

by Peggy Benicke, Executive Director at Robbinsdale Women's Centerfaith and obedience

Have you ever thought, “Okay, Lord, here’s what I’m planning to do. Please bless and provide.”

Have you felt the Lord’s clear calling to do something that you were sure was impossible to achieve because you thought you didn’t have the money, staffing or resources? Maybe you were willing to step off the “cliff” of faith but were held back or discouraged by others with influence. I’ve encountered these circumstances many times in my 22 years of pro-life ministry and look forward to helping you not only navigate these challenges but also helping you to achieve miraculous, God-glorifying effectiveness and growth in your pregnancy help organization's future.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

I’m very excited about encouraging you at the upcoming Heartbeat International Annual Conference and look forward to sharing amazing testimonies of not only effective ministry but significant growth through faith and obedience during my workshop. Topics we will explore include:

  • Am I certain of my specific role in this ministry?
  • Discerning God’s next steps, (“Is that really your will Lord?”)
  • Being quiet and listening for God to reveal His plan
  • Surrendering to His will
  • Finding the courage to step off the “cliff” of faith when all the odds are stacked against us
  • Convincing those with influence who may discourage us of the importance of faith
