God is definitely in the miracle business and I have seen it in my life firsthand. I am a bucket of stress most days, self-induced I might add. I am one busy girl with every finger in a pie of some sort. The problem is not in the amount of work, but in my own inability to believe in myself enough to think that I can even accomplish half of what God is telling me to do. I also find myself running ahead most days which makes me feel somewhat better about the future tomorrow, but I am not even guaranteed tomorrow. So why all the fuss? Because I can’t see my own worth.
Psalm 20:4 – May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
The desire of MY heart. What is that? What does that look like? What do I desire? Who am I and what do I really stand for? Where am I going? What am I to do? I may have a lot on my plate, but if I try to do it all in my own power, then that power will vanish and slip away. Who am I putting my confidence in if I have no confidence in myself? God is trustworthy. He is faithful. He is true. And He wants to give me the desires of my heart. All I have to do is put it all in His hands!!
God speaks. God moves. Nothing in heaven or on earth can stop His plan for my life! I must be willing to listen, and do whatever is required and I will drink from a fountain that will never run dry!!!

To further your reading, consider this from:
1 Peter 5:6-11 – Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Why run ourselves ragged trying to please others when God’s recognition is all we need to worry about? He sees our hearts that lie behind our actions anyway so what are we trying to prove and to whom? God will lift us up…IN DUE TIME!
