A God Thing

Saturday I had my first Steeped Tea party.

I had been scared out of my mind leading up to it…but somehow, in a way that can only be explained by God, I was fairly calm during the party. And – praise Him – things went really well!

The Lord has been drawing me out of my comfort zone. I struggle with social anxiety, so being around large groups of people (especially people I don’t know well) is difficult for me. But Saturday turned out perfectly. The weather was gorgeous, there were a good number of people whom I knew, and everyone was able to enjoy the products and to have a nice time.

All I can do is be grateful to my amazing Father.

I didn’t think I could do it. I doubted myself, doubted God, made excuses, and over-analyzed things. But the LORD was bigger than all of my faltering. He did in and through me something that I didn’t think was possible.

What are you struggling with today? Is there something that just seems too big for you to tackle?

It may be too big for you to manage – on your own. But not with God! He does things in our lives that are far greater than we could ever imagine.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
     where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
     the Maker of heaven and earth. ~ Psalm 121:1-2

A song that has been an encouragement to me over the past several weeks of preparation for my tea party is called “Shoulders,” by For King and Country. If you are able, take a minute to listen to it, and allow God to pour out His mercy and grace on you and your situation. Our help comes from Him! ❤
