Just a quick reminder for you friend...
That thing that has been on your mind lately...
You know, the thing that someone should fix,
the thing that someone should donate to,
the thing that someone should raise their hand for,
the thing that someone should build...
Maybe there is a reason why it is on your heart. Maybe... just maybe... you are that someone.
Because as the Casting Crowns song goes,
It's got to start right here
It's got to start right now
You have the power to make a big change in your little corner of the world. It's time to dig into your purpose and grit to make it happen.
Let's live with Faith over Fear.
If this cold weather has you diving under the covers in angst for this never-ending dark season, know you are not alone.
But also know, you have the power inside of you to rise up. You have a spirit of boldness and light within you giving you the endurance to keep moving forward, even when you do not know what lies ahead.
You were built with intention and grit. And every single day God is weaving the Golden Thread into you tighter, reinforcing your weak spots and making you stronger.
Know that if those thoughts and dreams that once felt fleeting are growing inside of you again, you DO have what it takes to make that vision come true. You were build purposefully by the One who knows exactly what it takes. He wouldn't give you those visions without also giving you the ability, provision and grit to make it happen.
Don't waste this season. It may be cold. It may be dark. It may feel never ending but it is not in waste. Keep working, keep growing, keep honing in on your purpose and grit and when this season passes you will be ready to step into the light.
