Above & Beyond

Can we learn…

to be grateful—even for the things that “hinder” us in life?

Even for

the trials

the weaknesses

the lack

the disappointment

the mockery

the ridicule

the rejection

the lies

…all the things that attempt to convince us…”to drive ourselves into the cave”

to dull and darken our light

to shut ourselves down…

But can we learn to be grateful

even for these things?

Can we learn to see,

as He sees? 🌈

Because He sees… “above and beyond” all of these life situations.

He sees “above and beyond” all of the lies and attempts of the enemy.

And He sees what the “resistance” will really do, if we press into it with Him. 🪁☀️

He sees…

“above and beyond”…

So Father, I want to thank You for allllll of the things that You’ve allowed into my life—

the things that have been hard

the things that have been uncomfortable

the things that have been painful

Even for the things that have weighed me down for a season or two…

Because I know

that YOU can SEE

“above and beyond”

ALL of these things.

And I know

that YOU know

the good plans that You have in store for me.

Plans that somehow, so beautifully use

every. single. thing.

that I have ever struggled through.

That’s the kind of God that You are! ☀️

Knowing this

being reminded of what is TRUE…

encourages me, when I find myself “in the middle”

because I also know

that I’m right “in the middle” with You

You have made me to be able to overcome!

And You can see

“above and beyond”… 🦅☀️

Thank You, Father. 💝
