We’re wrapping up the study of Beth Moore’s “The Quest” which has prompted me to examine God’s presence in my life. Yes, there are many weeks that I have a “Sunday christian” mentality, and other weeks it may be “Sunday/Wednesday”. However, through my internal struggles in the last year of searching for who I really am (I’m a recent “empty-nester”) I am realizing the value of having a “#godsgotthis” mentality. What does that mean? I am not doing life alone. I have a partner in this charade!
I have found myself literally asking God (out loud, I may add!) for direction in my life as I’m driving down the road. Thank goodness Georgia recently adopted a “hands-free” law … I can now talk to myself alone in my car and people don’t think I’m crazy!!!! (Although, my family will continue to refer to me as “crazy Mrs. W”. I think I’ll take that as a term of endearment!)
I challenge you to try it. Try remembering when something good, challenging or disturbing comes your way that #godsgotthis. You may not see the whole picture and wonder why in the world something is the way it is – good or bad. But, remember to adopt the “patchwork-quilt” mentality. One day the whole piece of art will be revealed and we’ll realize that if “A” hadn’t happened then neither would “B”. And it was “B” that shaped me into the person I am today.
Take the challenge!
