30 days.

I don’t know why I can’t get this idea out of my head.

What if you KNEW God was going to answer your deepest heart’s prayer in 30 days? Like, the clock is ticking and you’ve got 30 days until He does the thing you’ve always wanted Him to do.

What would that mean for your life? What would that mean to your heart?

(in)courage has always been a sweet place to live and write, but lately it’s also become a bold place to live and write and they are letting us, as writers, push into some hard spots and ask our readers to think deeply.

I hope I’ve done that in this piece. 

I’m a little scared, a little nervous, honestly unsure personally of how to answer the questions I’m posing. But also? I’m excited to see what God does and what the comment section holds today.

Please hop over to (in)courage and check it out, see what other people are commenting, and join in the conversation.

(And do I think struggles like I wrote about on Monday could be directly linked to the stuff God is pushing me to write about like this? Do I think that our battle is not against flesh and blood and we have an enemy who is trying to steal, kill, and destroy? But it is all worth it for HOPE? Yes x 3.)

    Annie, I loved this post. I struggle mightily with living in hope instead of depression and fear, so this was a great reminder.

    So, so, so good. For me it would be that baby I’ve been praying for, for nearly 10 years. Oh my goodness, I can’t even imagine what that would look like if I KNEW it was coming. And scripture is so full of promise after promise being fulfilled; of God’s faithfulness.
    So in all reality, i guess living as if it WILL happen is how we should be living after all.

    I have a hard time remembering that god could come back or change everything at a drop of a hat so I always try to remember that live love lead to your fullest
