The other day our family was fortunate to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity, to not only see one of God’s greatest creations but to experience it to it’s fullest. We were going on a plane to see Denali the tallest mountain in the United States and land on a glacier. We weren’t just going to see Denali, we were going to stand its presence and take in its magnificence.
Before the day even started there was grumbling and complaining from our children. ‘I don’t want to go!’ ‘I don’t want to wear or bring a coat!’ It took every parenting effort to make our kids put food in their mouths, brush their teeth and put socks and shoes on their feet nonetheless get into the car! There were tears of fear of the unknown, what to really expect, how was this day really going to play out?
We tried explaining to the kids we were going to have one of the most amazing experiences in their lifetime. We described landscapes, picturesque views, mountain tops, planes, glaciers you name it to prepare them what to expect. We explained, people from all over the world travel to come see the grandeur of Denali and the beauty of Alaska. They were going to experience what most people never experience in their lifetime.
Regardless of our tireless explanations, we realized they needed to come to their own conclusion and trust in our promise of an amazing day. Our puny words would never bring justice in comparison to what they were going to experience.
As the plane took off, we were a little nervous because we had never been on a plane that small amongst the mighty mountains before us. There arose a lot of questions, ‘What if we crashed?’ ‘What if something happened to the plane?’ ‘What if…….?’
It made me wonder, how many times have I done this before with God and questioned Him, ‘What if’?
How often do I put my hope and faith in what I see?
How many times has he tried to nudge me in a certain direction and I gave him a hard time?!?
How many times have I gotten in God’s way, when he tried to tell ‘me’ I have the greatest plan ever for you, one where you will experience the abundance of everything I have to offer if you just let me show you?!?!
Just like our kids, I don’t need to know every single detail of how everything is going to turn out, I just need to TRUST IN GOD’S PLAN! His ways and plans are so much greater and better than mine. There will never be answers good enough that will suffice my human understanding. The only answer I need to know is God loves me and that is ENOUGH.
Is God’s Love ENOUGH?
Each time I ever question God, ‘Are you sure?’ or ‘What if?’ he gently reminds me, He’s got it. He sees at a God’s eye view, the bigger picture of what is really going on. He has all the details under control, I just have to trust his plan is good enough.
There will be times where it seems he is asking us to go down rocky paths or troubled waters, but I promise you His love will always bring you home. His love will never take you where his grace cannot protect you.
I am happy to report we saw the most amazing views we would ever see in our lifetime. We had the most unforgettable experience. It would never have happened if we didn’t take a step of faith and got on the plane. We would have missed out on so much if we didn’t trust in his plan and go. His love is able to do so much more than I could ever do. When God’s plan is the plan for your life you will have the most Amazing Life Ever!
Where do you find your hope? In your circumstances? In what you see? In yourself?
What do you put your trust in? Yourself? Or God’s love?
God has the most amazing life ever waiting for you to have RIGHT NOW. He designed you to live the best life ever in him, live life to the fullest, one that is filled with his abundance of everything he has to offer, something this world can never give you.
Will you trust in his love for you?
Trusting in God’s plan allows His love to intercede on your behalf and make all things possible.
There is Victory when He is Enough!
