Never alone.


I’ve had a recurring prayer on my heart over the past few months in a lot of things I’ve been taking on.

‘Father God, I can’t do this alone, I just can’t.’

I even prayed it today. There have been so many new things to learn and a lot of fresh beginnings since September.

New challenges have each brought their own set of doubts and that sneaky little inner voice that claims ‘you can’t do this, you’re not good enough, do they know you’re just pretending to know what you’re doing?’

I hate that voice. The doubt creeper – it robs joy and replaces it with anxiety and fear. But the quicker we learn this voice isn’t true the better.

‘Father God, I can’t do this alone, I just can’t’

I pray this in panic, in worry, in anxiety and the recurring answer is always the same – God’s loving whisper right into my core.

‘You’re not alone, you never have been.’

I’m in awe of God, how he allows my messes to be covered in his love and rolled out as his triumphs. Each new scary challenge that little stretch further, living in faith that He carries me through. The persistent and consistent message that he never leaves me.

‘You’re not alone, you never have been.’

I love how each day I discover beautiful opportunities, friendships and relationships that he destined for me from the very beginning. Designed them, just for me. I’m thankful He knows me and he designed this life for me to live.

His love, so intricately perfect, not mass produced for all creation but painstakingly designed to fill my heart and soul at the gentlest whisper.

You see I know that while that voice of doubt may strut around like it owns the place sometimes, my father God is so much bigger and where HE is, that’s where I want to be.
