You are not behind.


Today was a day where belief was a bit harder to find.

Because sometimes, there are days — and seasons — where despite our best intentions, things don’t happen the way we plan. And when things get messy and unpredictable, we get frustrated, disappointed, and discouraged. We doubt.

And we might even feel a little behind.

I know I do.

But last night, I took an Influence Network class on hope taught by the wise and inspiring Ellen Parker. At one point during the class, I quickly scribbled these words in my journal, my heart taking them in with gratefulness:

God’s love says you are not behind.

I just reread them to myself a few minutes ago. And I’ll probably read them again later. Because despite the rough moments and uncertainty of today — and even this season — God’s love says I am not behind.

And there’s always tomorrow to say a prayer, try again, and keep believing in His purpose and plan.


::For the month of October, I’m participating in The Nester’s #31Days blog writing challenge. My topic? Big BELIEF. For the next 31 days, I’ll be writing about three main things: 1. BELIEVING in His good plan for my life, 2. BELIEVING in the dreams He’s placed on my heart, and 3.BELIEVING in who He is and what He promises. So, what do you say? Will you join me? Will you open your heart to Him and allow Him to grow your belief over these next 31 days? You can read all my #31Days posts,here.::
