This morning, I woke up to a situation I didn’t expect.
And quite honestly, was quite upset with.
No one likes not being listened to, and sometimes pain is speaking so loudly it drowns out the voice of love.
As I was in my initial shock, I heard God whisper,
“Rest in Me. I am in this.”
A few minutes later, once I finishes what I had to do, I hears Him whisper again,
“Rest in Me. I’ve got this.”
Then the radio started playing
this chorus, by one of my fave worship leaders, right where my soul was at:
Lord I need You,
oh I need You.
Every hour, I need You.
My one defense,
Oh God, how I need You.
How can I not rest in Him being in full control when He keeps gently reminding me to do so?
Like you, I struggle with letting go of situations outside of my control.
Because holding onto to them does nothing apart from winding me up too tightly.
Causing me to miss what it is God wants to show me in the midst of whatever is going on.
And I am tired of missing out on seeing more God in my days.
I live with myself 24/7, and I am quite honestly sick of the same old, same old going on within me.
Its time to welcome more rest, and less stress. Leaning into His arms, giving over my burdens,and finding the rest I know I desperately need for my soul.
When God tells you He is in this, taking our hands off allows Him to shine more brightly without us being in the way.
More of You, God.
Less of me.
