In Case You Need A little Hope
When you pray for courage does God give you courage or does he give you an opportunity to be courageous??
This question struck a chord with me & it had me wondering how many times are we missing the opportunities being provided to us because we are expecting an answer to our prayer verses the opportunity to make that prayer possible???
Y’all this was so powerful to me because for years I prayed the same prayer over & over again...for years. One night I sobbed myself to sleep after praying what I always prayed. I remember questioning God. Did he not think I was worthy of living life differently?
That night I had a dream that felt so real. The type of dream you wake up from & question if what happened was really a dream. Ever have a dream like that???
In my dream I was praying the prayer I had prayed before falling asleep & all of the sudden the brightest warmest light started to shine on me. It was so bright I could barely see & as I tried to open my eyes I saw this hand reaching out for me to grab a hold of it. When I did I heard a message loud & clear: I’ve been waiting for you to get up & do the work.
The dream felt so stinking real, I realized at that moment I had to stop waiting for God to change my life.
How many of us are praying for specific things & we’re just waiting for it to happen instead of opening our eyes to the opportunities he is providing to us all???
They say if you want to make God laugh tell him your plans...most of us have plans that are selling our lives short & most of our lives are not going to be lived the way we thought they would because he has a greater plan for us all...if we are open to it.
Y’all don’t you dare doubt that God is routing for you or think you’re unworthy of something greater like I once did. You are so worthy of a life worth living to the fullest🙏🏻
I share this with you all because if I didn’t trust him as I became courageous & fearless & began to do the hard work I wouldn’t be on the path he has me on today.
Be brave enough to the listen to those whispers no matter how far off from your plan they may be & then get to work!
