Walk through the fire with me
Listen to this amazing song by Tauren Wells, "Famous For." Let these powerful words sink in. They will encourage you to trust God in any circumstance.
Now pray a prayer of confident faith in a God who has a history of doing miraculous things because it glorifies HIS name, not because it makes our lives easier. I think we get that motivation confused sometimes.
Fame does sit well on us. We weren't built for it.
But God was. Glory is meant for Him, and everything He does brings glory to His name.
You are miraculous. You always love us. Your works are mighty and they display your power and majesty.
Why am I so worried about ordinary things?
All I need to do is look at all the incredible acts you've done.
You change governments and protect armies and remember orphans and heal diseases and comfort the brokenhearted.
You walk through fire with me. You call me out across the raging waters. You go before me in battle. You hold me in grief. You whisper in the stillness.
Nothing is too hard for you to accomplish, and you never leave me alone.
I must remember that. I must lean into your story instead of panicking about my own. It's a lesson I keep trying to learn but I keep failing at it.
But you are patient, and you work miracles. You give abundantly, excessively, and willingly.
I am so awed by you, God!
