Last month, I went to New Life Center on a Sunday morning and listened to a message about faithfulness given by my son-in-law. He asked, “Are you looking for a King or for comfort?” Before the message, we sang a song called King of My Heart. The lyrics talk about God being good. I truly believe that he is good but then when it came to the next line, it gave my faith a good shake.
You’re never gonna let, never gonna let me down. I had a hard time believing the words as I sang them and it caught me off guard. Why am I struggling to believe God will never let me down? I want to believe that God will never let me down, but what if he does? Here’s the thing: God has never actually let me down.
I let myself down. People let me down. The world let’s me down. But God. He has never let me down. Not ever.God will never let you down. Click To Tweet
I was less than a week away from putting on an event (with the help of soooo many volunteers) in my community–a baby shower for teen moms. Things were coming together, but fear was starting to set it. What if no one comes? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I planned? What if I let people down? What if I FAIL?
Oh Lord. Please don’t let me down. I’ve put so much into this. Please don’t let me fail.
And I knew before he even spoke it into my heart. It’s not about success or failure.
It’s about trusting God. It’s not about doing all the things or impressing anyone. <–<< I should already have this down! I’ve been blogging about this stuff for what seems like forEVER. Other people’s opinions of me don’t matter, my efforts don’t even matter.
All that matters is LOVE and my relationship to God, the King of My Heart. Doing the uncomfortable is risky and scary at times but God is with me. He is with you too. I am beloved. You are beloved. I am enough. You are enough.I am beloved. You are beloved. I am enough. You are enough. Click To Tweet
My word for 2018 is enough. So enough already! I hope you can believe that today for yourself too. And in case you are wondering, the baby shower was a success and not because people showed up, but because God showed up. It was a beautiful picture of the outpouring of God’s great love.
