Have you ever felt like there was something inside of you, a dream or just something that you’re passionate about, and you get disappointed with it? Me too. I just want to encourage you today and start with the verse Philippians 1:6. It says, “I’m sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion…”
Let me tell you something: That has gotten me through a lot. Just for an example, I have so many examples, but just one example of something that I feel like has been disappointing over and over again for me, is getting to lead worship. Getting to sing and share what I feel like God has put inside of me. And I feel like it was for no reason. And so I cannot tell you how many times that I had gone after that word from the Lord that I felt like was inside of me. And even something that I love doing, and been disappointed with it. People telling me I’m not good enough, people with good critique and good help, just thinking that they knew what were they were saying to try and help me, but ended up disappointing me. A lot of no’s, a lot of just laying it down, and surrendering it and then just being disappointed in it, and being real with the Lord of like, “Did you really? Are you sure? Are you sure this is for me?”
I just want to encourage you today that after a few years of that, and it looks different with all the different things, but it’s been years for me, and I am finally starting to see little things happen with that dream of mine. And it may not look like exactly how I want it to, or wanted it to, or thought that it would look like, but it is so much better. And I feel like we hear that a lot, and it’s something that can be so cliché, but it is so true. I would not have it any other way in the way that it’s happening, in the way that I’m seeing myself come alive in something that is a word from the Lord.
And so I just want to let you know if there’s something inside of you that you have been chasing after, but you feel defeated and disappointed in it, do not give up. And remember these words that “He, who began a good work in, you will finish it to completion.”
