In my last post I talked about how this year was my “do it” year and that I was going to start doing the things I have to do and the things I’m being called to do.
Which all sounds nice and great… in a blog post. Truthfully I wasn’t really ready to actually you know… do things.
Don’t get me wrong, this “do it” year is a great idea and I’m still running with it but, what I didn’t know when I was writing my last post was that it wasn’t going to be easy and that God’s going to hand me things that require a lot of strength to do.
I know you all are probably like.. duh of course it’s not going to be easy, this is life. But I obviously didn’t get the memo!!
But, despite all of the realness of life, I DID DO SOMTHING HARD last week… actually two hard things I had to do. And the Lord definitely had my back through it all! It was totally covered and fully lead by God.
Each hard email I had to send, each conversation, each deep breath, and most importantly each cry out to the Lord is making me into the person God has created me to be.
Truthfully I want this to be hard and I want this to stretch me. I want the Lord to bring on the rain… I need as much growth as possible!
So yeah, I hate to break it to you but DOING THINGS IS GOING TO BE HARD! It’s going to take every ounce of who you are to trust God in these situations. However it’s going to take every ounce of who you are now, to become who you were made, designed, and hand-crafted to be.
It’s totally worth these momentary tasks that take boldness and bravery.
So just in case you are like me and totally thought this would be a piece of cake, from one child of God trying to work though this life to another… WE CAN DO THIS, God is calling us to step up and be who he has called us to be!
