So when you don’t feel good enough or strong enough to face it, just know that God’s grace reaches to the lowest of lows to pick up and elevate to the highest of the heights. That’s you and me He reaches for to lift us out of where we are, to hold us close to His gentle heart and saturate us with His favour and His ‘always there’ grace. He has enough grace to go around and reach to the ends of the earth and to everyone in it, so you can know, He’s got enough for you in your corner! Right there, right where you are, He’ll dispense it as you need it, and not a moment sooner, so don’t panic in the moment of the unknowns and the insecurities, and the disappointments. Grace lurks in those horrific places, just ready to be given and God will give generously and lavishly and just so willingly and His love, so unconditional, won’t care about what you’ve done or haven’t done.
So you see, there are no worries to perform to perfection. No, beautiful soul, Perfection is not necessary for grace to meet you where you are and take you from where you’ve been. Let it go and step out of the past and be drenched in the sweetness of His grace and favour. He’ll see you through the next step in the journey.
Ephesians 4: 7
“But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.”
2 Peter 1: 2
“Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”
A discouraging day is it? Yeah, there are some of those, when everything that can go wrong does and when it’s all said and done, it’s all said and done and you can’t change it or make it different but you can shake it off, move on and make a difference. Begin with an attitude check and a heaping dose of God’s grace to soothe the discouragement, disappointment and add some mellow to the harsh. Those sand paper moments are difficult but they come and sometimes they trick us into thinking we’re not good enough or smart enough or strong enough to make it. They sneak up on us and catch us off guard and if we’re not alert they can win it over us and run us down. Beautiful soul, you are not defined by your successes or your accomplishments. You are not who you are because you’ve made it or haven’t made it. You are you and who you are is God’s creation made in His image, and made beautifully to fulfil His purpose in your life. He hasn’t left. He hasn’t walked away. He hasn’t left you alone in the journey. Trust Him to meet you right where you are ~ in that heap of insecurity and not good enough. In that heap of impossible and over the top expectation demanded of you. Jesus is your security in your insecurities and your strength and motivation in the impossible. Let Him take your load, your worry and your anxieties and give you peace.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

What impossibility hangs heavy over you today? Oh we all have our storms that rage and our mountains that we see way off in the distance as we try to muster courage to face them. We can live in doubt, fear or perhaps denial but sooner or later we reach them or they catch up with us and we know that now is the time that we must begin our steep accent or our walk on the water. You can do it, but not alone. If you go it alone, you set yourself up for mishap and misfortune and we’ve all been there at some point to know it’s not worth it! Yet, we forget who God really is in these crucial moments and like Peter walking on the water, we become fearful and take our eyes off of Christ! We look away from Him, into the impossibilities of the challenge that we face and so we begin to sink. As Peter was going down, he cried out to the Lord in Matthew 13:30, “Lord, save me! The Lord answered him in 31, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Then He took his hand and caught him.
Your storm might seem impossible, but God is faithful and you can trust Him to catch you. You can trust Him to get you through. I don’t know what you face today but stay focused on Christ, climbing the mountain! Remain calm, with eyes on Him, while walking on the water!
