I saw something similar to the quote above this morning and I've wanted to write something like this about myself for a long time, I just really couldn't find the words. It's funny sometimes in the least expected moments, God can prune your heart to speak the truth.
Often times when I sit down to write, I have this emotional block where the words just seem to be stuck inside of a jar and I can't seem to get the lid off. I think it's Gods way of reminding me that everything comes from him, in his timing and not my own.
Today, the words flooded my heart as I was driving and I had to pull over to a safe spot and share my heart.
I still hold on to the promises he's whispered to just me and I will still walk with my head held high because I know the truth despite the way I feel today. Despite the voices that tell me I'm not qualified, not good enough, and it's not my time.
I would not be honest if I told you that I don't entertain those thoughts but I do. Eventually, the truth always kicks in and I am reminded of whose I am. And he shows me that with him, I cannot fail. I know God will use me to do amazing things. To reach hurting women that have no hope, to speak truth into the lives of many because of the truth he's spoken to me. God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called. And sometimes, we just need to say, "Yes" to the things he's asked us to do, despite the way we feel. Because if it is TRULY God's will for us, our feelings will eventually catch up to the truth!
