When I am faced with an obstacle or situation that looms large before me, I can measure myself against it and lose heart. When I feel myself shrinking, I need the reminder that God is Big. It’s nice to have a friend or family member take hold of me and remind me. It’s even better when I remember how to remind myself.
How many times has God saved me? Every. Single. Time.
Then out loud, or on paper if it helps me to see ink on the page as proof, I list all the times God has come through for me or for the people I love. Every time I thought there was no answer and he answered me or gave me new questions. Every time I thought I was out of options and he opened an unseen path before me. Every time I thought I would fall apart and he held me together. Every time I thought I wasn’t enough and he showed me that with him, I was. Every time I was inconsolable and he consoled me.
