SHE will not fall.
'Faith'. It was the theme God gave me for 2017. I punched in 'faith' into the search engine, and began scrolling through the rabbit hole that is Pinterest. When I scrolled across this floral design etched with "God is within her, She will not fall." I stopped scrolling and stared at it for a while. It sounded powerful and feministic, so I decided, why not? I added it to my vision board and went about 2017 watching as God began to answer the visions I asked him to fulfill. So there, in the bottom right corner, hung this Psalm 46:5 verse with seemingly little significance.
For a long time, I knew that I had a several types of talents that would guide me to and through my purpose, but it was hard to summarize into one title. I wasn’t just a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) enthusiast or just a lotion maker, I was a processor. A grocery store aisle dancer. A speech therapist. A game night hostess. An undercover writer, with a lot of thoughts that had yet to be written and I was beginning to get mentally stocked up.
So as I began to create HERology 101, I needed a message. A mantra. A war cry if you will not only for me, but for all those who share in the turmoil of feeling like they had to choose one calling in life and stick with it.
Still to this day I have never used cruise control in my car, so I definitely wasn’t going to attempt the same in my life. I never want to be stagnate in the things that God gives to me as gifts.
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.”
Like the idle servant who was given little, I too felt like I was burying my gifts in the sand. Not out only out of fear but fatigue.
Fear that I would fail. Fear that I would grow tired, and lose interest. Fear that I wasn’t actually doing what God called me to do, but acting out of my own self-interests. Either way, since fear is not from Christ, fear will ultimately call us to do things that Christ doesn’t call us to do. Like doing nothing with even a little.
So HERology 101 is an ongoing demonstration of my faith that God can grow a whole garden out of my past pain and current passion. What I share is about SHE. SHE is me, and you, and us! SHE is not afraid anymore because…
“God is within her, SHE will not fall.” -Psalm 46:5
What are some talents that you have buried?
Regardless if God has given you one or 10 talents, how are you using or plan to use your talents for his glory?
