When reaching for your dreams, you expect to face opposition, but I am always surprised how much muh of it comes from within myself.

In the past few years, I cannot even count the number of times trusted friends have let me down, circumstances have not turned my way, and in the midst of everything I find myself doubting.

I doubt my abilities…
I doubt my calling…
I doubt my God…

Opportunities come with opposition, but it is kind of scary when you see the opposition coming from within yourself. No matter how rough things get, I have to find a way to stand with God and not stand in His way.

I doubt my abilities… But God is strong when I am weak.
I doubt my calling… But God’s Word never returns void.
I doubt my God… But His Covenant-Love endures.

When God reveals impossible opportunities, don’t forget to get out of the way.
