We Got This...

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to hear the Rev. Gabe Joly from Booneville, Mississippi deliver the Sunday message. In that message, he referenced the story of Jesus walking on water. (Matthew 14:22-33 NIVN)

As I listened to the story and the sermon for that day, I realized that I had it all wrong. See, when faced with a problem or a challenge, I would say to myself “I got this … “. I figured that I could take care of whatever was happening without any help, no problem. Listening to the Word of God through Rev. Jolly, I was reminded of something even better. I was reminded that “WE got this … “.

Wow!! How cool is this? I don’t have to go through things alone even when it feels like I might be. God is with me. I am surrounded by the love and strength of Christ and the friends and family He has given me here on this earth.

I LOVE how God shows up and shows off. In the last week or so, during my morning commute, I have found myself behind the same white truck. In the window of that truck is an “NHIM” sticker. What an “ah ha” moment and beautiful reminder!! No matter what the day will bring, it will be met with Him. I am not alone!!

For fun I googled “NHIM” and discovered a gospel music group (http://www.nhimtrio.com/) and a Christian clothing store (http://nhimapparel.com/). God is EVERYWHERE and in EVERYTHING!!

No matter what it is you are going through, I encourage you to Trust, Believe and Keep the Faith because “We got this … “.

Dear God, thank you for the subtle reminders that you are with us each and every day. Please be with us as we reach out to each other in both the good times and bad. May we be reminded through our daily struggles and joys that we are not alone. We can do all things through You!! In your name we pray. Amen.
