But Lord

“Go talk to that girl.” – But Lord! AWKWARD.

“That was a nasty fight you just had with John. Get up, walk across the room, and talk to him.” – But Lord! I’m ANGRY.

“I haven’t heard from you in a while, Rachel.” – But Lord! My life has been so BUSY lately!

“Trust Me.” – But Lord! I don’t understand this. Any of it.

“Follow Me.” – But Lord! That’s HARD.

“Go talk to that girl.” – I’m scared. But Lord, you give me courage.

“That was a nasty fight you just had with John. Get up, walk across the room, and talk to him.” – I’m so hurt. But Lord, you are our Helper.

“I haven’t heard from you in a while, Rachel.” – I’m distracted and apathetic. But Lord, you relentlessly pursue my heart.

“Trust Me.” – I’m so small. But Lord, you created the universe.

“Follow Me.” – I’m a mess. But Lord, you are faithful.

I don’t want to live a life of excuses, unmet expectations, and subpar experiences. I want to live an extraordinary life, with enthusiasm and for eternity.

Don’t give God your excuses, give Him your everything.

Live the abundant life that’s right outside your comfort zone.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” – Jesus (John 10:10)
