A word of encouragement.
Have you ever been frustrated with God for what you’re going through? It’s hard to admit, but I’ve been there too. Sometimes we feel unworthy, unprepared and God calls us anyway. What happens then?
When I found out I was pregnant, I went through a whirlwind of emotions. While I knew how great of an honor it was for God to choose me as a mother, I did not think it was the right time. Feelings of doubt in my own readiness and ability began to creep in.
But here’s the thing: God needs us to trust Him, even when we can’t envision the outcome.
So that’s what I did. I started going deep into my prayer bag and really leaning into my faith in God. Fast forward ten months later, I ended up laboring on my own through the night and delivering my daughter just an hour after my midwife arrived. It’s amazing to me that in that short amount of time, God was able to transform my mind from a place of doubt and fear to a mindset of trust and courage.
Even though labor is a time where we could use extra support, I was able to do it on my own because of my strength, how my midwife had poured into me and most importantly, because of how much I trusted God.
As I’m writing this I feel like God just gave me another message:
God will give you all the support you need, sometimes through other people. But you might have to take it to the finish line alone, just so He can show you how truly capable you are.
I share my story because I can relate to shying away from God’s calling because we’re scared of what it looks like. We wonder if we’re prepared, if we’re capable, if we’re enough. But we have to trust that God sees a bigger picture. Lean into the discomfort you feel when you’re going to the next level; it’s part of the process! It’s uncomfortable, but I wrote Power Up! to remind us that we are equipped with a strength from within.
