For the past week, this phrase has been replaying in my head over and over. I’m at the point where it’s driving me crazy which tell me two things:
1. God is working on my heart
2. I want to run really far away
Events this week have left me very overwhelmed and lost. Decisions had to be made that I really didn’t want to make or even think about. I’ve talked to my Jesus a lot and He keeps telling me “Do the hard thing” and pointing me to Luke 1:45 which says,
“Blessed is she who has believed that Lord would fulfill His promises”
I don’t want to do it. I deserve the easy path right? Maybe. But I know that my destiny is being formulated by Perfection and that’s going to require the difficult path sometimes
Am I prepared? Absolutely not. But I have faith that God is going to carry me through this season with me in one hand and a whole lot of grace in the other. I believe that the Lord will fulfill His promises. It’s easy to crumble under the weight of earthly fear of the future. But I have no reason to worry.
So what I have decided to do is face this challenging season of uncertainty head on. I’m going through off fear and listen to my Savior’s gentle encouragements.
Do the hard thing
Receive your blessing
I’m standing on the edge of an ocean, terrified to jump into the vast, deep, dark water. My Father is there, looks at me with gentle confidence and says, “Daughter, trust me! Have faith in my promise of safety!” So I leap from what I know and dive into the depths. I’m scared and I’m shocked by the icy water but I’m being held in the strong, warm arms of my Father.
