It’s not about me.
It’s all about God.
His power. My faith.
His glory. My trust.
His ways. Not mine.
God used a little girl to give Namaan a message. A message that seemed utterly crazy. But it wasn’t about the act. It was about the faith in an all powerful God.

Never abandoned. Always delivered. Abundantly blessed.
Whatever you are facing, God has shown you time and time again that His ways are higher than our ways. Even when it doesn’t logistically make sense to our human way of thinking, we simply must trust.
He holds the galaxies in the palm of His hands and we are but specks like the sands on the sea shore~
yet He loves us infinitely.
He tells us to go. To serve. To believe. To glorify. To trust. Because He is all powerful and all loving.
And through Him we can do anything. Philippians 4:13
Isaiah 26:3, I Corinthians 10:31, Isaiah 55:9
