A Reminder of Truth

This past week has been tough for me. Studying is hard for me. I always want to be the best and I am terrified of being thought of as unintelligent. It is where I am most insecure. Sometimes it just gets too much. The pressure gets to me, the stress gets to me and I feel like one big failure.  It always seems like everyone else has it all together whilst I am falling apart. Often I just need to take a step back and let some truth be spoken into my heart.
Truth. Truth is freedom. I always love to rest in the book of Ephesians when I am forgetting how incredibly deep, unfailing, overwhelming and good God's love is. It is rich and it is more than enough. I trust that God has a plan for my life. A good plan. The best plan possible. And, yes I can work hard but at the end of the day I trust His love. So when I am feeling down and when I am struggling I ask for truth to hit my heart. The truth is that I am me - beautifully and wonderfully made. And you are beautiful and wonderful to. The other day I was out running and I heard God whisper, Sally I have a plan for your life that doesn't require you to be anyone other than you.

I have struggled with similar thoughts. We are simply as intelligent as we are - no more and no less. God will use all he has given us for His Glory. That ought to be, after all, the end result of all intelligence - to point the hurting world back to the one who bestows his gifts with grace and purpose. Glad to hear your thoughts. You are beautiful! In him, Linda

I think that God speaks to everyone, anyone. There are no qualifications required to hear from Him.
