One Prayer Away: Show Up in Faith

One Prayer Away: Show Up in Faith

You spend your days looking for an invitation.

For signs.

For circumstances.

Something that points to God being ready to use you.

But the truth is, He has been there all along.

Waiting for you to show up for His directions in faith. Because when God breathed life into you, it was by design. To complete His good works.

To carry out His amazing plans.

And to confess that God is King of your heart every step of the way. So lean into the uncertainty and unknown with this truth:

God will use you. God will bless others through your life.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.Hebrews 11:6

Dear God,

I pray for the woman who is gathering her strength. Lord, life has pushed her down and the world has pushed her around, but she does not quit. Remind her, Father, that You will equip her and sustain her for every battle ahead. In Your Holy Name, Amen.


Your Calling Will Never Come from the World

You are not called to convince other people of your calling.

And you are not called to make sure the world understands what God has uniquely made you to do.

Your one job is to follow after Him with your whole heart.

Not just a little.

Not just when it is convenient.

Going all in: Mind. Body. Soul.

But if you are a people pleaser, the temptation to detour and perform will abound.

Today, let your heart rest in this truth: The calling comes from within.
Listen to it. Let it guide you.

And no matter the worldly adversity:

  • Love God with all you have.

Each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them. 1 Corinthians 7:17

Dear God,

I pray for the woman who is being prepared for big things. Lord, she feels You leading her, but she so easily loses confidence and questions Your ways. Remind her, Father, that You are not giving up on her — even if her heart pauses, even if her foot steps off the path. In Your Holy Name, Amen.
