The Hard Good: Showing Up When You Want to Shut Down

God’s intention for all of us is that He would do a great work in and through us while we are here on earth. That we would become used by Him for a powerful Kingdom purpose. But just like King Saul in the book of 1 Samuel, we can inhibit God’s plan by our unwillingness to sit with God through the uncomfortable process of transformation. We might think that the reason we never get anywhere in life is because life is too hard. But this is just one of the myths we hold to that hinders the spiritual potential we have. As we learn a new way of holding steady instead of being consumed by bossy emotions, remain strong rather than hide or deflect, we become wildly used for the Kingdom of God.
