It’s amazing to me when I grow past my own limitations how I see others living within their own. Sure, life isn’t what you would have preferred, but what can you do about it? Work with what you have and make the most of it. If you want something bad enough and it’s God’s will, he will show you the right course, but you also have to put in the faith and hard work to get there.
There have been many times where through TSW I was tempted to let the condition be the reason I wasn’t effective or an excuse for not meeting my goals. Yet there is a choice within this circumstance: to let it beat me or rise above.
I don’t know your mindset, but I encourage you today to consider that you are exactly where God wants you to be right now. Ask Him to show you how to glorify him in this season, how to learn and grow from this opportunity, and to help you see what He sees when he looks at you. You are a treasure, have value, and are not forgotten. Your story is one that will inspire others and encourage them in their walk of faith. There is so much opportunity for growth and good things to spring forth: God is the ultimate gardener!
AND, there’s a great VeggieTales song on this idea...”God is bigger than the boogie man. He’s bigger than Godzilla or the monsters on tv. Oh God is bigger than the boogie man, and He’s watching out for you and me.”
Partner with God and crush your limitations. We are waiting for you to soar.
P.S. I often use the times of insomnia to write these posts. Try to take every opportunity to make the most of each time I’m awake. We never know how long we have on this earth to make an impact and leave a legacy.
P.S.S. Can you name which episode this song is from?
