Let God Fill in the Details

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?”

(Matthew 6:25 NKJV)


The most dreaded moments in college went a little like this: Opening a Word document to write an essay due in five hours and staring at a blank page. Not knowing where to start. Wondering how I’d be able to complete it in a short amount of time. (And probably thinking, Why didn’t I start this earlier?!)

“Blank pages” in our lives give us similar worries. That opportunity you thought was for you, but it passed by. That open door you’ve been praying for, and the door closed. The answer you’ve been seeking out, but it hasn’t come. You thought, This is the beginning of a beautiful story, but it never got written. 

When we’re faced with blank pages, our typical response is to fill them. We get uncomfortable in the waiting and the what-ifs. We wonder if God hears our prayers. We take matters into our own hands. We become a bit restless. We rush. We plan. We panic.

But give God a blank page, and it’s a different story. 

When you let God fill in the blanks of your life, you encounter His best version of your life.

Finding Rest in the Everyday: 3 Tips for the Restless

I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.

(Jeremiah 31:25 NIV)


It’s a few days before autumn, and somehow in the beauty of changing seasons, comes a time where a lot of people get…sick. And it happened to me.

I got sick.

The kind of I-have-to-cancel-plans-again sick. The kind that keeps you up all night coughing then makes you take a 3-hour-not-30-minute-like-I-planned nap in the afternoon. 

And over the past two weeks of losing my voice, I’ve learned a few things about getting better.

Your Status Doesn’t Matter: God Can Still Use You

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

(2 Corinthians 9:8 ESV)


What’s holding you back?

Too many times we believe the idea that we need to “level up” before God uses us. That we need to look a certain way first, make a certain amount of money first, figured out this or that first, get (insert a major goal of yours) first.

And trust me, I’ve been there, too. We live in a world that demands certain qualifications before the job, the school, the opportunity, the next step. We often base our value on our resumes or the amount of likes we get on Instagram. 

But what if none of these things really mattered?
