Being in a relationship with God has challenged me to do things I thought I never would do. It has expanded the borders of what I thought was possible in my life. It also has taught me to not hold on too tightly to my plans and to hold them all gently before Him.
Some ventures have worked, some have not.
My journey with Jesus has emboldened me to try and trust and risk.
I have also failed and fallen flat on my face.
But here is the thing – God has used each one to do a deep work in me through each one of them.
The wonderful thing about being in a relationship with God is that while our plans don’t always work out, God always works His purpose through them no matter the outcome.
This life is not about doing all the right things, it is about letting Jesus grow the right things in you. God’s purpose is to have a relationship with you and grow you into who He created you to be.
“We humans keep brainstorming options and plans, but GOD ’s purpose prevails.” Proverbs 19:21 MSG
My friend, go ahead and take the risk, bite off more than you can chew and dream big all the while knowing that you are safe in the hands of Jesus as He works His purpose in you through it all whether in success or failure.
Have a fear-free, try and fail or succeed day in Christ.
