Convergence theory says that God designed you with certain gifts, talents and abilities, that matches your design.
The enemy capitalizes on transition and even directional discovery to try to establish fear where faith is necessary.
I received a word from God through a beautiful man. He said, “Abandon your rights to anger about this situation.” I had no idea where the ramification of my obedience would lead.
“Hey, I am going to remodel my house while I am preparing for my daughter’s wedding!” Yes, anxiety is a focus problem.

Our deep despair over not being able to perform is both an invitation to lean into His life as well as a check that I'm probably kicking against the goads.
To “lean” is to go completely empty, looking for His filling. Coming with NO opinions, no thoughts and no strength.
Faith is to live listening to His voice in every moment of my life. It's like I'm to live with my ear against Jesus' chest, so I can hear His very heart about my life.
