God is cheering you on
It’s easy to believe that God is acutely aware of all my shortcomings. Which is true. But it’s easy to then believe that God is mostly interested in my shortcomings. I think he’s more interested in my success. And by success I don’t mean money, or many of the other means by which we measure it. I mean he wants me to fully live. To become everything he had in mind. I think God is kinda like a parent who stands on the sidelines cheering their child on. “Way to go! You can do it! You’re almost there! I believe in you!”
In fact…if I’m really still for a moment, I think I can hear him cheering. And it inspires me to press on. Can you hear him?
