Cocky

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)

God will never let me fall. If I stumble, he has the ability to raise me higher than before. This fact always creates supernatural confidence; confidence that moves mountains. When I only have confidence in my own abilities it turns into destructive pride or fear (Proverbs 16:18). Then I start smelling myself. It doesn’t smell like roses; more like rank onions. Cockiness smells sweet when you trust in the Lord. Some say I’m cocky. I just know God got me!

This post was inspired by the song Cocky by Andy Mineo.

  1. oh my gosh, I love this Shannon! I am going to send you an email if I didn’t already respond to the one you sent me. I really do miss you and I’m praying for you and everyone! I hope you have a happy happy happy Thanksgiving day and are having a blast fruitful holiday season inspiration for the celebration of Jesus Christ! Merry Christmas too!

    • Thank you! Is this Lei? If so I miss you lots too! I need to give you a over due call. I hope you and your family have wonderful holiday season as well. Hopefully we can catch up soon! And yes, I’ve been patiently waiting on a email from you. 😀

  2. A thought that often goes through my head during the darkest times of my life has been “this too shall pass.” With Him we will make it through anything. Romans 8:28–“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good…” I’m enjoying looking through your blog posts.
