When I’m Worried, God Reveals

“Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”
Matthew 6:26 (ESV)

Maybe You Were Made for Such a Time


I just read through the book of Esther in the Bible and I loved it! My favorite part of it was the beautiful moment in Esther’s life where she finally realized why she was put where she was. It finally clicked that she had a purpose bigger than she realized. Before I jump in any further, I want to give you the brief backstory leading up to this moment Esther’s life.

Psalm 139:13-14 (NKJV)
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.”

God knew exactly what He was doing when He made you. You’re here for a reason, no doubt about it! You may be flawed, but so am I and so is the rest of the world. We’re all beautifully imperfect. ❤

Why Do I Do It?

Why do I write about God? This is a question that I have tried to answer for myself, but I never felt as fulfilled with my answer as I am right now. I can’t answer in my own words, but I can use a Bible verse that perfectly describes it.

Sing to God, everyone and everything!

Get out his salvation news everyday!

Publish his glory among the godless nations,

his wonders to all races and religions.

And why? Because God is great-well worth praising!

No god or goddess comes close in honor.

All the popular gods are stuff and nonsense,

but God made the cosmos!

Splendor and majesty flow out of him, strength and joy fill his place.

1 CHRONICLES 16:23-27 (MSG)

That is why I have this strong urge to write about God. I know that I’m not a prime example of what it means to follow God, but with almost every ounce in me, I feel like telling the world about God, is my calling. Am I afraid that I have it all wrong and this isn’t my calling at all? Yes, I’m afraid of that! (I’m still learning how to get over my fears.) God says do not fear, so I might be crazy for jumping off this cliff, due to a feeling, but the way I see it though, is that wouldn’t it be even crazier to sit here quietly when it feels as if God is trying to tell me something? Not a single soul could read my blog and yet here I am, typing anyway. Why? Because I know that it’s a possibility that someone could stumble across one of my posts and it may just help them. I wish that I would’ve stumbled across something like my blog when I was trying to wiggle out of the feeling of sharing God’s word. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, it was because I was scared that it would keep me from getting married and that it would keep me from normal life, making me run around the world. (I love traveling, so I’m not sure what sense that made.) I might still be semi scared of these things, but I’m deciding to stop worrying about it. Anything God gives me will be far better than anything that I want. God doesn’t steer us the wrong way. He knows our true desires when we don’t even know yet. God is the ONE who knows the future, not me. If He says to do something, I want to jump, not hide. I’m becoming quite disgusted at all of my hiding and fear.

God is my hiding place. (Psalm 32:7) If my hiding place moves, I want to move with it. I want to live a life where God is my comfort zone, where God’s ways are my ways, the way I go. I will be praying to do exactly these things that I’ve said. This is why I do it.
