The daily devotional I read was talking about overcoming fear.
I am still amazed by how God is constantly giving me cuddles of encouragement each day. This devotional was just what I needed as I crawled into bed last night.
Here's what really got me the most...
Basically, it was saying that we need to overcome our fears, risk the possible failure and pursue our dreams. We need to remember that God wants us to succeed.
God wants us to succeed.
It doesn't mean he's going to take all the crapiness out of our lives, but it does mean that he is standing by us, pom poms in hand, and cheering as loud as he possibly can. He wants us to follow him. He wants us to have faith in him. He wants us to succeed.
"But those who want the best for me,
Let them have the last word—a glad shout!— and say, over and over and over,
God is great — everything works together for good for his servant.
I'll tell the world how great and good you are, I'll shout Hallelujah all day, every day."
Thank you, Lord, for who you are. Thank you that you love us so much. I will praise you all my days.
