A Goliath of a Moutain

It’s funny how we see this Goliath standing in front of us and how our very bones become fear striken.

Why?

That’s what I ask. It may seem unbelievable to ask such a question. It’s obvious why. The Goliath is bigger than us, meaning it has to be stronger than us, right? Of course! When something is higher up than us, it has the upper hand. It’s simply the pattern of this life we live in. Although, it appears as if we’ve forgotten who invented this life; who has the upper hand of all things.

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?”

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 share the goodness of God on this blog? That is a question that I have tried to answer for myself, but I never felt fulfilled with my answer. I may find it hard to answer with my own words, but 1 Chronicles 16:23-27 says it (perfectly) for me.

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 follow my strong desire to write about God and His goodness. Do I ever fear that I have it all wrong and this isn’t my calling at all? Yes, I’m afraid of that! Fear is a part of living.

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. . . 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 when He lays something on my heart.

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 sharing God’s word. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, it was simply because I was scared that it would keep me from having the life I wanted. Now I look back and think of how foolish that philosophy was. Following a path that the Lord desires for you to walk down leads ro the greatest of destination. Sometimes we become blinded of that due to the grasp fear has on us or more so—the grasp we have on fear.

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 couldn’t encourage you enough to do the same.
