Confession Time

Hello fellow faith walkers, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on Out The Boat. When I started this blog my goal was to be an encouragement to people who were taking leaps of faith and jumping out the boat to do whatever God has called them to do. I have to be honest that lately I haven’t felt very encouraged myself so I haven’t posted anything.

I was tired of jumping out the boat, sinking, then jumping back in…over and over again. I was tired of feeling like I was praying to a brick wall when I could have been spending time catching up on Game of Thrones before the new season starts. I was tired of watching everyone else’s prayers get answered while I still waited. Yes, I’ve been having a selfish moment. Who am I to question God’s timing? I am nothing but a little grey worm (shout out to my fellow GOT fans).

The truth is God answers my prayers every single day that I wake up in my right mind. God knows what obstacles I’m facing and He always makes a way. He always provides for my needs. There are just some things that I have to wait a bit longer before I see them manifested in my life.  God can not be rushed so I have no choice but to be patient because I want the best He has for me.

Another thing I realized is that sometimes the best way to encourage others is to let them know they are not alone in their struggles. I feel as if I’ve failed my fellow faith walkers by only writing when I feel like it or when I feel strong. The truth is that sometimes I need encouraging too. I have days when I don’t feel like I’m worthy of my calling and there are some days I feel like giving up but I know that I’m not the only one. So, I promise I’ll do better posting regularly.

You all keep praying for me…I’m praying for you. God Bless!

  1. I think all of us writers and bloggers go through times like this. Right now, I’m waiting for some things to happen, too, and I’ve been frustrated at how slowly things seem to be progressing, but I’ve also realized by looking back and seeing how God has used other hard times in my life that if He’s leading me through this now, it’s for a very good purpose. I can’t wait to see what it is. That’s helped me live and write with a little more hope and anticipation. Whatever God has you going through, there’s a purpose, a future, and a hope!
