I was looking though a couple of old journals, not sure why… but I came to a day in March of this year… I was really struggling with some insecurities that day, felt defeated and not good enough. I had been comparing myself to other talented photographers and asked myself in my journal that day, “why would we ever be chosen for anything over so many of these other talented photographers who do such incredible work?” (And I should have known this was a ridiculous thing to dwell on, gotta admit, I was not in a good place that day)… but I took this to the Lord and then I heard a response from Him….
He said “It doesn’t matter.”
And then INSTANTLY I remembered that it’s never anything I can or that I couldn’t do… has nothing to do with either of those. It’s all about what He can do, and His favor, and where HE wants to take us for His purpose.
He takes us places in our business that we don’t really “feel” qualified to do, and yet they are placed before us. He gives us the way of doing what we need to do, and takes us forward, gives us the creativity that we need. Teaches us. It never ceases to amaze me.
I’m so thankful that I can lean and depend on Him to carry us and deliver us through whatever it could be that we are to do.
2 Corinthians 12: 9-11
“And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.”
