“It’s the size of one’s will that determines success.”

I just love this photograph and the saying underneath it.  Especially when I think of “one’s will” as coming from “God’s will.”

God’s will is for all of us to be saved! 

God’s will is for us to live with purpose and to have joy and contentment.

God’s will is for us to not worry but to live in peace.

God’s will is for us to share His love with others.

And the list goes on and on.

I guess what I’m trying to say today is this:

No matter how HUGE the trees around us may be that are trying to block our view from the light.  Or how large the forest we are in may seem to be that is draining all of the nourishment from our tiny roots, we have to remember that God is our strength.  With Him we can make it no matter where we are planted.  Yesterday was a tough day for me as I set off to face the world.

But, you know what?

It turned out to be a great day!  I enjoyed my day with a sweet student teacher from Morehead State.  I loved the kids in the classroom I was in.  Olivia and I had a fun time in a cake decorating class last night (I’ll add pictures later), and I felt God’s presence all along the way.

The hovering trees of grief and sadness could not keep God from shining through. 

Oh, Lord, help me to always look through the thickest covering of leaves to SEE YOU AND YOUR WILL FOR ME…………I press on towards YOU!

My prayer today is that all of you will feel His presence in mighty ways as you press on too.

A seedling longing to continue to grow towards Him,
