I was sitting down yesterday. I said, "God, you must be so annoyed at me. You give me these opportunities, and I'm too afraid to step forward and trust You."
And then it was like, wait a second. That's how the world reacts when we don't do things right. When we make the wrong decision, when we're afraid.
They taunt us, and tell us we're pathetic. They judge us, and sometimes -- they just full-on give up on us.
God doesn't. No, he doesn't. He is patient. God never judges us. Quoting Max Lucado in his book, "Just like Jesus" --
"God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus."
Jesus will never give up on me. I have to open my heart, and allow him to direct me; I have to trust him. Fully.
