The gap: Who you were – Who you could be

Behind you is gratitude – Before you is growth

God steps when you step, revealing more and more to you. Strengthening you for more, preparing you for more, but you don’t see it until you step.
“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Psalm 139:

O Lord, you have examined my heart
and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
and when I rest at home.
You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
even before I say it, Lord.
You go before me and follow me.
You place your hand of blessing on my head.

I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
Your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.

God created you, equipped you, and then filled you with His Holy Spirit, to face situations. The very situations you’re in the middle of right now. You can do this – you are good enough – you have exactly what it takes because God is within you and he is for you.

“What did you have in mind when you created me?”
“What do you still desire for me to experience?”
“What untapped potential have you placed within me?”
“Who could I become?”
