None of what God has called you to do is about your ability. It’s about what only God’s complete and loving life can be through you. It’s easy to pickup and carry the weight of what you think is “your responsibility” and the weight of yours and other’s expectations. These weights get really heavy the farther you carry them.
Learn to be still, dear child of God, and He will be faithful to remove these stresses from you. Allow Him to lead you forward while you envision a good future. The Father has a path laid out for you and will be your Heavenly tour guide every step. He even promises specific direction for your life.
When you turn to the right or to the left, your own ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “No, this is the way; walk in it.” – Isaiah 30:21
And that feeling that wants attention that says “Who will believe you?” Know this: you don’t ever have to prove to anyone that you are called, chosen to do certain things. As a child of God, that is part of your identity made in His image.
Learn to walk the path with God. He has provided everything you need for every step. Let His love flow through your being and permeate your soul and body. Learn to believe that He is so very pleased to be your Dad. Let this thought fill you, and those expectations will fall away.
Hear Him saying to you, “I am your Aslan who meets with you in deep forests. I am your Aslan who roars at your enemies. I am your Aslan who has gladly given Myself for you to live the story My own hand has written for you!”
Loads of Grace,
From the desk at the window while stars twinkle in the night sky.
