You all think I’m so strong – or maybe you know me well enough by now. I’m just a little girl inside. I get scared and sad too. I am tough on the outside – full of big ideas and boldness.
And then some days – I just crash like everybody.
I had a crummy day yesterday full of some silly doubt and I don’t do that often – but it felt good just to cry for a while. I let God know how I was feeling. And then called on some trusted friends in my business and let them remind me of all the things I already knew.
This is going to lead to a Light ‘Em Up principle and sweet story… so hang with me…
Here’s what brought me to tears. God knows me. He knows when I’m hurting and what I need. And he had already used my friends to comfort me and my own husband said, “You are the LIGHT of my world. I am so incredibly proud of you.”
And then… God didn’t have to do this, but he sent one of you to light me up. In such specific ways – I cannot tell you. The very next day, one of you sent a LONG email to remind me that one family, one book, one child – it matters. And good grief – it rocked me.
So, I need you to know – this isn’t about me – or needing more emails. This is about how God can be trusted with your heart – even when we are sad for silly reasons. We can trust Him. He will take care of us. Trust that he will bring the people and the things that we need. We can keep our eyes on Him and the people around us.
He knows you.
He loves you.
Let Him do – what only He can do.
Listen to the nudge in your heart – and THAT will be the most anointed and special “light em up” – you can do this season – because you’ll be a messenger. Whether it’s a free starbucks, a note or an email. If He asked you to do it, He’s needing you to pass His love directly to one of his children. Don’t miss the chance to do what this girl did for me. The EXACT things I was doubting – she wrote in this email.
