Right before you step into something big, do you ever get that feeling that maybe you are biting off more than you can chew? I do that sometimes.
I feel God’s pull on my heart to do something, know it is what He has called me to for this time, and yet when it comes down to the wire of actually stepping off to do it I hesitate. I have those thoughts of doubt. I think everyone does.
I did that this week. I took on a new position in our Protestant Women of the Chapel (PWOC). I know this is where God would have me for this time and get excited about what He is going to do. But still the morning of the “installation” to my new position, I had those thoughts.
Thankfully, God was right there assuring me that this was all a part of His plan. He did not expect me to do this at all. He expects to do it through me. I am so glad. If left to my own accord, I would seriously fail. God, on the other hand, never fails. He will conquer. He will reign, and I am so humbled that He would choose to use me.
So, for today, if He is calling you, if you are about to step off into something big or small, join me in the gratefulness that we are not asked or expected to do this on our own. How thankful I am.
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ‘ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
