Y’all know sometimes people say, if an opportunity isn’t for you then God has something else even better. Or my favorite one – a no-to-one thing is an opportunity for something greater? So, both of those things can be true…but when you are in the midst of a lot of no’s it doesn’t feel like it!
When I write, I always want to share the good and the reality. My reality right now is I have put in work the last few weeks and have received several hard no’s. I thought we were going to be shouting all January as the preacher says, “This is the year for increase.” and I’m like umm. I’m just being real yall. 😂
What is the church saying? God is good, all the time, and all the time God is good. But the reality is all the time life isn’t good even when God is good. To be honest, I would have loved to come on here and say I won this grant and my book was picked up by this company, but that’s not my reality right now.
In this moment of my reality, I have a choice to continue to move around or I can choose to believe the report of the Lord.
While I take a moment, I remember:
My scripture for the year is:
“Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.” Luke 1:38 NLT
Even when I don’t see it, I command my soul and my body to still believe the report of the Lord. So, even when my reality doesn’t match my faith, I’ll still believe what God has promised.
God is faithful.
God is good.
God can’t lie!
Will you continue to look at your reality or believe God is good?
How is January going for you?
