Praying for big things doesn’t make you weak. It opens you up for a higher strength.
If you don’t believe in your God-given gifts, in your God-given drive, in your God-given life - who the HECK else is going to? Who else is going to send that email or take that trip or decide whether today is the day you invest or tomorrow or never? I mean, moms and mentors and best friends rock. They get us pretty far. But there’s gonna come a time when you have to take that interview or make that deal and there is no one else examining your heart and choosing your life except you, and your God.
Here's what time and time again age-old wise counselors have told us to be true: The only constant in this life is change.
The only thing that matters is what He says of us. Are you listening to it?
Have you taken all this messy stuff to His feet? All of it? The good? The really good? The bad? The worst? Have you asked if now is the time to act? Have you asked if now is the time to stop?
There is magic in the shift from a terrified “I don’t know” to an exhilarated one.
When we make a conscious decision to tell our hearts to live with open aired windows and let our experiences shape us as they will...
We are best steered by the guidance of His will when we are already in motion.
Think about it.
Pulling along a cranky, defeated, “ugh”-kinda minded human and delivering them to sanctification and all the good stuff that life has to offer does not sound reasonable to ask of anyone. Why ask it of our God? Of our glorious and magnificently GOOD and gracious God?
Hi, I'm Chlo.
I've been writing stories inspired by my real and imaginative experiences since I learned at age 7 that if you fold and staple construction paper together, it sort of looks like a real book. I have always craved soul serving stories- ones that melt like butter in your mind as you hear your heart explained out loud.
This here is my home away from home. When I'm not exploring neighborhood coffeehouses, driving down the Pacific Coast (again), or loving on all my people - I'm probably here, with you. Come on in! Scroll around. I hope you feel less alone.
