She thought she could but
She thought she could so she did. But it was harder than she thought. Who does she think she is? She tried, so why keep trying? Did she hear God correctly? Was it even God? Or was it some silly dream not work her time?
There is fruit but not what she was expecting. Could she have misunderstood? Then quietly she hears the whisper.
“Dear one, true it is not way you saw it. But I did implant the dream. Let it play out the way I want it. Don’t force it. You will impact others to grow my Kingdom.”
As she walks down the path Jesus has set before her she sees the seeds He has asked her to scatter. She misses sometimes. Some days her imperfections seem larger than the talents He has clothed her in. Still she walks.
She doesn’t know what opportunities or barriers are before her. She just knows the goal. One day she will be with her Savior and each step will make sense.
She will serve because He served.
She will sacrifice because He sacrificed.
She loves because He loved.
She thought she could but she couldn’t. However, Jesus knew she could. He restores her unbelief with faith. He fills her with joy. He extends His gentleness through her. He supplies her with self-control. He pours out patience so she too can give it. His peace overwhelms her. His kindness emanates from her. His goodness directs her. His love propels her to love like Him. He supplied the power she needs and through Him she will.
This is each of our stories. Yes, that is right, this is each of us. We cannot forget we are His workmanship. Keep walking.
