If He said it, he will do it!


As a child I am embarrassed to admit that I truly believed that when I was an adult I would know all the answers and have everything (money, relationships, work, etc) all figured out. (Come on, didn't you think that too?) I crack up thinking back to that naive little girl (bless her sweet heart for thinking that) because my middle age self knows now that that will NEVER happen. Honestly I spend most of my days feeling like I am failing the many tasks and responsibilities on my plate. I run around trying to juggle everything (work, family, home, ministry, friendships, volunteer work, CASA, Chrissy's Closet, etc) dropping balls and failing oh so very often. As a reforming people pleaser, type A personality I struggle with not having all my ducks in a row and everything figured out. I so often need the reminder that I don't have to be or feel qualified to do what God is calling me to do- just obedient and willing. If He calls me, HE will do it.

1 Thessalonians 5:24 says: 
"The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it." NIV
"The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!" The Message
This is one of my favorite of all verses (it's been on my desk for as long as I can remember) and one that I cling to when I feel like I am not equipped or prepared or able to do what God has before me {which is SO VERY OFTEN- today included!}. There is such comfort in the reminder that it's not up to me!
My prayer today is that we are all able to remember that our job is to be obedient to what God calls us to do, to be faithful in that calling, and to leave the rest (and the results) to God. Rest in that truth today friends, HE is faithful and HE will do it.
