I’m embarrassed that I haven’t written anything since July + I almost feel completely overwhelmed to say much of anything because of how my life has changed since July. I could sit here + try to update everyone month by month what has happened in my life, but I think I’d rather not. Instead I want to inspire you with what God has done in my heart through the past 8 months or so.
It’s been quite an experience walking with the Lord lately. I find myself being stretched in ways I never imagined. But through it, I’m still coming out victorious. My mind is being expanded(is that a word?), my heart is being refined, my vision more clear + my gaze is more steady upon the beauty of the Lord.
In all of this, God keeps showing Himself faithful – every time I ask for something, He gives it to me. Now I don’t mean like I ask for money + boom 50 bucks, or something tangible, I’m talking about as I walk this path with Him + I begin to waver or doubt in my belief, I will ask Him; “Show me Your will Lord!” + I have a dream, I hear a word, I read a scripture verse, I have a divine appointment + I know that I am on the write track.
I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that He is a man that DOES NOT lie, that He is true to His word + He who is promised, is able – more than we could ever ask for or imagine. Those words – I cling to, I know above everything else, above the circumstances + situations I face daily – my God is on my side + He is working it out for my good. It is only a vapor, a momentary affliction, it’s nothing in the grand scheme of things.
So I press on toward the goal – the upward calling in Christ Jesus. I know my future is bright, I know I am more than a conqueror, I know I am victorious. I’ve seen the victories in my life to know that I am capable of walking in the FULLNESS of all that I am, because of who HE is in ME.
Believe that God is always for you, no matter what the situation looks like, what it feels like, or what it sounds like. Cling to that + you will surpass all your own expectations.
