Small Boat... Big Change

Hey Girl,

It’s been a few days since our last chat. I just couldn’t stay away!

I was reading the scriptures that are found in Mark 4 this morning, and I wanted to share with you some things I was encouraged about. First of all, I noticed Jesus was the one who led them into the storm. Why do we get so tore up when we face hard times? Our first response is usually, “oh that devil is attacking me again!” Maybe, OR maybe Jesus is leading you into a storm to show you his power. 

Many times in my life, I have asked God to change my circumstance. I have poured out many prayers for God to change others’ circumstances, but what I am finding out is, God is wanting to change the person IN the circumstance! As soon as Jesus performs the miracle of calming the storm, he immediately asked why they had no faith. He wanted them to know the bigger picture was their lack of faith, not the storm. 

I do not know what your facing today, but I do know Jesus is in your boat asking, “where is your faith?” Let’s be women who asks God how he wants to use our circumstances to change US. He is right there with you sister, do not be afraid. Trust your creator. He always has your best interest in mind. Sometimes, our “best interest” takes going through some hard things but in the end, our faith will be strengthened and we will have a story to tell. 

On another note, I have to take my boys with me to run errands today—— pray saints pray! 

xoxo,

Ivy
