After sitting down to write my goals for the year, I reviewed what I had just written and said, “Wow, these are some big things God. Hmmm…I’m really shooting for the moon with some of these…are they realistic?…can they be done?…maybe I should dial it back?” Well…I really feel God looked at me and rolled his eyes…while shaking his head (which I’m sure he often does when it comes to Miss Trina) because immediately, the following scripture came to mind.
“…but if you CAN do anything, take pity on us and help us.”
“If you CAN?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes”
“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Well…with that said, I began to pray over my goals….
God, this year, I commit my goals, my desires and my life to you. These things…”this kind” of blessing that I’m seeking will not be accomplished outside of you. God, I’ve done it my way and have made small strides and incurred tons of bruises but God I’m ready to do it your way so I can make leaps and bounds! Understanding, that I will fall but I have you with me…inside me, to cushion the fall. In that, I will rest..in that I will finally “take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”
Also understanding that you are not a genie in a bottle. What you allow in my life, good or bad is ultimately for your glory. Though I may not always understand, this I do know, you will move heaven and earth to get me to see things thru your eyes….to move things in me…to move things out of me.
God, just like your servant said, in MY doubt, help me to believe. Do not allow me to doubt whether you CAN do it – I already know you can. Allow me to walk in that simple fact alone. All things ARE possible!
Be Brave, Be You, Be Blessed!
