Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.

June 10, 2013

think about how far you've come

 

Okay, do me a favor.

Imagine yourself a year ago.

Trace your mind back to what you were doing, what job you had, what friends were in your life, what school you were going to or whatever your circumstances were.

Now think about your worries during that time, your BIGGEST prayer requests and the things that kept you up at night.

Have they changed?  Improved?

Or maybe they were just completely removed from your life?

I’m not sure what your prayer list looked like at the time, but thinking back to mine, I am in awe of who God is.

Why?

Because those problems, those concerns, those circumstances, that felt like mountains I was simply unable to climb or see over- well, they’re gone.

Now, I am not suggesting that all of our problems and life circumstances went into a Disney dream mixer or under a magic spell and just BAM, life is crazy good.

But if you think about how far God has taken you since then, doesn’t it just blow your mind.

EVEN IF your life circumstances are the same, maybe God has just renewed your mindset and provided you with a fresh perspective.

I would argue that there is no possible way- not even a 0.0001% chance, that you have the exact same perspective about the exact same problem that you had a year ago IF you have been spending time with the man upstairs.

It’s impossible.

God always = transformation and growth.

Maybe not direct circumstantial change, because He ALWAYS knows what is best, but the inside of you?

Well, you just see things a little differently.

After reflecting on my life a year ago, I started wondering, where will I be a year from now?

It made me see the “mountains” in my life a little differently and life felt a lot more possible

Because it is.

Because Jesus.

So, today, I am writing down my current prayer requests, the challenges I am going through and the perspective I have on them.

I would bet that if I check this baby out, even in three months, things will be different.

Life is short.

Your worries feel big.

But they are small compared to your God.

The truth of the matter is, it is far more about who you BECOME by journeying through this life than what you do while becoming it.

Stay encouraged and remember how far your God has already brought you!

Ain’t no mountain high enough to keep your God from gettin’ to YOU baby!

Thinking of you, friends!

Short and sweet— whatcha been doing this morning? Have you developed a healthy routine when your mind wakes up and your feet hit the floor that will ensure a peaceful and productive rest of your day? I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
