I find myself pleading with the Lord lately…tell me.
I find myself begging for Him to give me some clarity with decisions.
And I find myself hearing Him tell me
“God never says ‘no’ to our earnest requests without thought”
But yet, I beg more and plead more and plan for all different scenarios
and then I start to give up
and give in
I begin to discover what my heart really longs for
and the way to trust in my Savior and His plans.
“God is strong-willed, not strong-whimmed. His ‘no’, when we are so sure it should be a ‘yes’ is often a sign there is a much larger and better ‘yes’ to come.”
So I begin to know what it means to remain in His love,
to know what it means to be chosen
to be His.
and I begin to focus on today
“it’s only when I fully enter into now, that the weight of being fully here can slow time down.”
and can bring me to that place free of anxiousness
free of fear
free of mistakes
and into the glory of today.
