Last week I had one of the most inspiring talks with my husband over dinner. He encouraged me, spurred me on and ignited a desire in my heart that honestly, hasn't been there in awhile.
He said I needed to stop limiting God.
We both have a huge passion for encouraging people. It's one of the main reasons we blog. And while there is little that can discourage him from this passion, a lot of times I get discouraged very easily. "I'm not going to write that. I don't want to annoy people. Who cares what I have to say anyway?" And I tell him all of my discouraging thoughts. Frequently. About blogging, about music, about being a mom. I struggle with defeating myself before I even try sometimes.
But he keeps encouraging me. Telling me that what I'm doing matters. And that words like that, limit God and what He can do. And after our talk last week, I finally believed it!
I know there are at least a few of you out there who read what I write. But who you are and what you think about it, I don't always know. I want to know. I want to know what you are going through, how God is working in your life, if you feel far from Him and how I can encourage you more. Because I've been there. I have shared so many of my struggles on this blog and some I haven't even touched. Because I'm scared. Because I don't think it matters.
But He reminds me that it does. And through the voice of my husband tells me not to give up.
