Come

Often times, God tells us to move and before we can really enjoy the move, our faith fails us. We become filled with so much fear that we doubt ourselves and God’s abilities. We see this displayed through Peter in Matthew 14:28-31. “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat and came towards Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

We see that Peter specifically asks the Lord to show him a sign of who the Lord was. Soon after the Lord responded, Peter allowed doubt to overtake him. Yet still, the Lord remained faithful and was there to uplift Peter out of his weakened moment.
What has God spoken into your life? What has God called you to do that you have not yet started? What steps have you taken towards your calling? Have you back tracked? Have you doubted yourself? Have you doubted God’s ability to sustain you?

Remember that when God plants a seed in your heart, he also equips you with everything you need to prosper in that place. He will also send you people to help you make the journey. Take heed to those people and things. Walk in faith. Fear and faith cannot co-exist. Don’t let fear settle in and block you from being all that you were created to be. You were created for greatness!

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
In any eve…
