His way…

Self-work is some of the hardest, yet absolutely necessary, work we do. Most of us find it uncomfortable 😖 to take a realistic look at who we are and who we know we’re called to be. 

God has an uncanny (or so it seems to my little mind) way of showing us allllllll of the ways — and, there are countless — that we’re really not all that. 😳 #YesISaidThat

Allowing Him to work on us will always reveal the areas in which we need to grow uP, be better and just #DoItDifferently. 

The amazing thing is that He does this lovingly. Gently. And, in a manner we can handle. (Cuz. He kinda knows how much is too much, right?) At no time, while under his corrective hand do we have to feel defeated. Or hopeless. #ThatsNotHowThisWorks

No. Nawl. Nope. The way my God is set up? He walks beside us, holds our hand and picks us up when the weight of it all is just…#TewMuch. 

💯 here for it. 



i wonder why…

(NOTE: This was originally posted elsewhere 1/8/2008; grateful for the growth.)

…when He shows me time and time again — that He’s got my back like no other — I still act like I don’t know?
…I seek ‘help’, ‘advice’ and ‘words of encouragement’ from all other sources of ‘help’ first — knowing that He is the only one that can REALLY do anything about my situation?
…when things take a turn, for the better or the worse, I run from or to Him? Why am I not walking with Him at all the times?

…I doubt His ability to do what seems to me an impossibility?
I don’t know why.

What I do know is that it’s insulting. To Him.

Real Talk: In this new year of my life, I will work hard at putting that FAITH into MOTION. That’s what it’s there for, right?
