The Weekend Brew: Oceans
I’ve been pondering big dreams of late. I know that there is more for me to do. Sometimes my dreams appear so small next to a God who is so big, so vast. And I wonder if I have the faith to walk it out, what He’s called me to do. What if I fail? What if I drown? What if it all comes crashing down? There is nothing more that I want than to bring Him glory with my life. I found myself asking this question of God this week, “Do You really desire to use little ‘ole me to make a difference?”
I don’t want to ever doubt Him. I don’t want to lose sight of the fact that He’s already written my story. I simply must trust that He will give me the strength and courage to walk it out.
God will call me out upon the water. There are no safety nets there, nothing for me to hold onto. Nothing but Him. And although it may appear that my feet may fail me, I must trust that He will not allow me to fall. His grace abounds in the deepest of waters. Staying on the shore or close to it involves no risk. But in order to fully trust, one must take risks. When all my strength is gone and it appears I may lose sight of what’s ahead, I can rest assured that His strength will uphold me.
So I will fix my eyes on Jesus. I will call upon His Name. I am ready and willing to go whereever He may call me because I know that I am held in His loving embrace.
Take a moment to listen to this song. What is it God is calling you to do? Will you trust Him to give you the strength and courage to walk it out?
