This month will be full of moments where I have asked God for the impossible. (And you will get the full details as we move along.) Yet in reality we all know nothing is impossible with God. However, how many times have you doubted?
Doubt has a funny way of growing like unwanted weeds in a beautiful garden. The weeds will come–even when you buy that fancy anti-weed soil. To rid yourself of those pesky guests you have to get on your hands and knees, in the dirt and prepare yourself to use a little elbow grease. To show your “guests” the door.
Doubt…anxiety…fear…and a big one complacency must be shown the door if you plan to live a life of audacious faith.
Dana, you’re digging deep for the first day aren’t you? Yes, I am.
Well because we want change. We don’t want that shiny-surface stuff.
Deep down in our hearts…
Lord make us over…
Father change our lives
All we want is YOU…
Actually, this could be a HUGE assumption on my part. Therefore, I will not assume. Instead I will ask…
Do you want change?
But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6 ESV)
But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. (James 1:6 NLT)
Stick around beloved. Let’s dare to ask God for the impossible.
JOURNAL AND/OR COMMENT
What (or who) do you need to “show the door” to live a life of audacious faith?
I realize I did not define audacious faith. It wasn’t a mistake, oversight or an accident. Daring to ask for the impossible will mean absolutely nothing with a doubtful mind. You mights as well stop here.
Are you still with me? 😉
