What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? We ask this question and come up with many answers, but how many of us can come up with more excuses when God asks us? These excuses are usually wrapped around a lie that we’ve believed about ourselves or about God.
Join me on a 5-day journey to break free from the lies that keep us bound and settling for a life that is not God’s best
In many seasons, we would not have picked the threads of pain and heartbreak. We would much rather have our lives colored with what we deem as beautiful, but God does not work that way. Even Jesus’ story had to have threads of darkness and death. That was God’s will for His life, and enduring pain is a part of His for us. Find the hope that when He looked at the life of Jesus, He saw how those threads fit perfectly into Jesus’s story because He did not stay dead. He sees the same for you.
If you're going to look back, trace His goodness in your life even in your most unbearable moments. Look back to see how God was faithful even when you were faithless. Look back and let it encourage your heart to perceive the new things He is doing even in the middle of a season that might not look the way you hoped. Be encouraged that it's His goodness that leads us to repentance, heals us when we are broken, favors us beyond what we deserve, and makes everything beautiful in its time.
