This is something that is extremely far from being about me.
I am not saying this to complain or express personal disappointment. I just want you to know that if you are struggling with not being good enough or not knowing what do, you are not alone!
When we have a view of how something should be going (our marriage, our career, our finances, or our health) and it is not meeting our expectations it can be very easy to become discouraged.
The serenity prayer says "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference."
What an old school thought that is so relevant for today.
When discouraged, we should ask ourselves if there is anything that we can do about this?
If there isn't..... then be still, and know that God is!
If there is..... then have the courage to take risks and change what is going on.
Something I have to remind myself is that God's desire to use us for something incredible doesn't go away because of our failures or mistakes.
God, give me the wisdom to know the difference!
