Hello everyone…it's so good to be back with you today and I pray that your day is going well…and even more, I pray that you are truly experiencing the presence of God in everything you put your hands to do this day!
Yesterday was definitely a different kind of a day for me; but one that truly led me to God's encouragement and inspiration. You know…I have come to see repeatedly that we can make all the plans we want; but truly, the final outcome is in God's hands…and once we come to genuinely see this and learn to let go of what we had expected for the day; that is when we begin to experience a powerful God at work within us.
As I had begun my Tuesday morning, I had originally thought that I would be writing and working in my office; but later in the day, I came to see that God had something different in mind. As I found myself out in the living room and kitchen, instead of the office; I began to share my heart with God, as I felt badly about how the morning had gone. In my own heart, I felt that I should have been in my office writing and encouraging you, instead of dealing with other issues that were happening at the time; but you know what…I came to see throughout the day that my thoughts were different than what God had originally planned for my day. In fact…I came to see that I would once more experience a time in my life, when I would either have to let go and let God have everything…or just remain emotionally stuck in the muck and mire of all that was taking place at the time.
This morning, as I was looking through some Bible verses; God began to lead me to one in I Peter 5:7, and we read… "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." Don't we realize that God is thinking about us and watching everything that concerns us? If so…then why do we always seem to find a reason to worry or doubt His ways? Don't we realize that once we let go of everything; that there is no other place for everything to go, except for into the hands of almighty God?
Last night, as I was sitting in my office…sharing my thoughts with God from the day; He began to speak to my heart and remind me that when we can truly learn to let go of whatever is weighing us down; that this is when He will come along and take hold of our needs and lift them from us. We must realize that worry, doubt and fear, will only become hands that hold tightly to a need that we cannot fix; but when we place our thoughts on other things…like what God may be up to; this is when we truly let go of the need, so it can rise up into the hands of the One who knows precisely how to fix what has been broken.
No matter how difficult life can be…there is a reason for what is taking place at the time…and the only way we will truly understand why life has taken a different turn; is when we find the strength and courage to let go.
Have a very blessed day!
