“If you decide that what God is asking you to do with your life is just too much on you and is just a little too inconvenient, then you will never see the miracles he has for you.” -- Andy Stanley
They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Then I said: “Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. -- Nehemiah 1:4-6A Life Without Borders begins in humility. It begins when our heart breaks for the things that break God's heart. It stirs us to action with little regard for our own capacity. It throws off the yoke of complacency and moves to a posture of righteous confidence. It’s a life that looks at walls (fear, frustration, lack of resources, people trying to bring you down, etc) as opportunities for God’s glory to shine. Nehemiah's story isn't about his unique strength, intellect or type-A-ness, it's about his unrelenting confidence in God.
