Often times on our journey we will come to a place that feels like stagnation or like we’ve hit a wall. To be quite honest, most of the time we are the stagnation or wall.
We ask God to increase our faith but when opportunities arise for us to exercise that faith we fail to launch. We must remember that “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1) Sometimes you’re going to have to leap.
This isn’t a free pass to make impulsive unwise decisions but rather a reminder that a “a good man’s steps are ordered by the Lord” (Psalm 37:23). It was explained to me once that many people misinterpret this and think it means you just standing around waiting for God to hand you a detailed itinerary of His plan. While you should always move in wisdom, once you have received your confirmation (sometimes multiple times) you’re going to have to walk. When you walk, God will order your steps.
Even if you make a mistake, He always has a plan to get you to your destiny at the moment it was predestined for you to be there.
I don’t think there’s a better explanation of the hash tag #BlackLivesMatter
God has never required that we be perfect in order for Him to use us to uplift, inspire, & encourage others. Human “better than, less than” stinkin thinkin is responsible for that. Don’t let anybody ever convince you that you were not created with purpose.
Don’t forget to add caregivers to your prayer list. They go through more than they’d ever tell you. So if you know somebody that cares for another, make sure you pray for their health & strength! ❤️
Be a best friend…. EVEN when someone is not a friend to you. When you can learn to do that and STILL be consistent in the love and friendship you offer? That’s when you begin to tap into that kind of speak to the mountain #faith and actually watch it move! Never let someone else’s conduct knock you off how YOU are supposed to be living and what YOU are supposed to be doing. ❤️
