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!

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
