The majority of us are very familiar with this verse: “But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31. Like many of you, that verse has given me strength and comfort when I thought I would never fly again. Broken.

:occurring, made, or acted upon EVERY DAY; issued EVERY DAY or weekday <daily needs>;
of or providing for EVERY DAY <daily schedule>
How could I have been so wrong about what a daily dose is? Simple logic caught up in fear of rejection, doubt of capability, and just plain busyness. Recently, I had a dose of God’s word that was my epiphany to this simplicity going the wrong direction; stifled in the mire of “every now and then” exactly where my adversary, Satan loves for God’s children to be. STUCK.
In Matthew 28 God says to “Go”! He didn’t say work your purpose into your schedule, take a break or that can wait.
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
God also tells us following Him is a daily; forgetting oneself, leaving the “to do” list blank; waking up every morning in full reservation to God; to His commands, to His list, to His “Go!”
Luke 9:23 Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
Here’s some great news! Look at the end of Matthew 28:20! He assures me, He assures you, “…I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” God is there, always, to the very end… helping fulfill purposes with daily doses for all.
There is a job to do with God’s perfect will that always includes a victory! I have chosen to unstick myself; get out of the mire, the do nothing place! Today I will heed to His command, put actions to the daily and share doses of God’s grace, faithfulness and love to souls within the path of my purpose.
Besides, that, God did not send my granddaughter, Briley Faith, here for the gospel to be shared only during her 61 days here; once truth introduces itself we must continue to introduce it to others; spread the good news throughout our neighborhood, people in our lives. Though she is now in heaven, she is still in my heart; I see her eyes speaking God’s truth once again. I must write because God said, “Go”; He said, “daily”. So, I will seek God and find Him so He may guide me to the “where” and the “who” with the words to share with the lost. There will be occasional new posts within this blog as I continue efforts in writing a book about the Briley Faith journey.
You might be like I had been and find yourself stuck in the yuck! It’s your time to break loose! Don’t fear it, face it; God is with you always! Get out of that mire of “every now and then”. Give daily doses of truth to the lost! Tell somebody what His love is all about! It’s your purpose!
