Sometimes God gives me things to do that I’m not very good at. I keep reminding Him that I’m a penguin and not good at running, but He just pats me on the head as if to say,”That’s ok, I know what I’m doing”
To make matters worse, lots of others know that I’m not so good at running- and they remind me and others who may not have noticed , that I’m not so good at running.
I would gladly quit if only God would let me! But alas I have no choice but to continue to run, all the while knowing just how unqualified I am for this very assignment.
Honestly, it is humiliating…..humbling, and almost overwhelming, but somehow He keeps embracing me and nudging me forward to overcome all the voices that say,"Give it up!”
Funny how it works- ya get a job to do that you don’t ask for, you’re no good at and you’re totally unqualified for – and everybody knows it- but still it’s your job!
Ya gotta wonder WHY?
Wait a second- this is exactly how Moses felt- he was instructed by God to SPEAK before the mighty Pharoah(Don’t worry, I don’t fancy myself to be a “MOSES”) and he told God that he couldn’t speak well. (Exodus 2)
Moses’ answer to God-“Who am I that I should go unto Pharoah and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
God said- “Certainly ,I will be with thee!”
And to Paul He said-
2 Corinthians 12:9 ..
My grace is sufficient for thee:for my strength is made perfect in weakness.Most gladly will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
I’m thinking I’m gonna have to trust God to walk me through, and pick me up when I fall on my face, and forgive me when I rail at HIM for making me RUN.
TIME TO GO RUN!!!!
If you don’t like the way I run…please close your eyes, cause I’m gonna run as long as HE tells me to.
