I share my ups, downs, disappointments, frustrations, joyful and happy times, problems and proud moments, stresses and anxieties, weak, strong, brave and courageous moments to hopefully portray the fact that I’m going through this human experience just like everyone else, where we don’t know what to expect from one moment to the next. But, I ALWAYS ADD IN ONE CRUCIAL PERSPECTIVE THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING: I KNOW GOD IS WITH ME! That’s what you call FAITH, baby! Wink! Wink!
And let me tell ya, I can boast of my weaknesses because those are the times where I MUST rely on God’s strength EVEN HARDER. Like today, I went RUNNING to Him, ‘God, I need to hear from You!’ No shame in my game! This life gets challenging at times, and I needed to be reminded of the important GOD FACTOR. And He didn’t disappoint HIS GIRL! He found a way to LET ME KNOW THAT HIS INVISIBLE PRESENCE IS ALWAYS WITH ME.
‘Where should I go to hear from You? Is it through reading my old posts, through Tumblr.com, my book or another meditation book?’ I asked Him quietly through my spirit. I felt Him saying a book someone nicely gave me a few weeks ago, He and I by Gabrielle Bossis. I instantly fell in love with it feeling God speak to me through it almost immediately. I had decided from last year that my words for this year would be “LOVE” and “DISCIPLINE,” so when this showed up in the book, what she felt God saying to her in 1941, I felt it was a message DIRECTLY from God to me, too:
“Your keynote for the year: Believe in love. Have faith in My love.”
I loved it so much that I made it my phone’s screensaver and it has been there ever since.
So, today as I asked God to hear from Him, I scrolled the cursor at the bottom of an electronic version of the book on my phone, and look what incredibly showed up:
“Your keynote for the year: Believe in love. Have faith in My love.” Wink! Wink!
And once again, everything lined up a little bit too perfect to be a mere coincident. This was God’s sweet and intimate way of saying, ‘Nik, I’m with you!’
So, no matter the situations that come our way, I want us with total GODFIDENCE: WE HAVE GOD. FULL STOP. PERIOD. How God does what He does is none of our business! Our job is to LISTEN to His voice, TRUST that He’s with and for us, and OBEY His instructions! We can, therefore, think best case scenarios knowing HE is on our side helping us get through ANYTHING THIS LIFE HAS TO THROW AT US.
“BUT THE LORD STOOD AT MY SIDE AND GAVE ME STRENGTH”
KEEP CALM—YOU’RE ROLLING WITH GOD
