On Fridays I join with others around the globe, writing for five minutes on a word given to us by the gypsy mama. We write without editing, without worry, without concern about who might read this or what they might think.
This weeks word is TRUST
Trust. Wow. This was the week that Beth Moore said the words “declare war” in my Bible study and I knew what I needed in my life to “declare war” on. My issues of fear (which equals lack of trust). The Lord has done great and amazing things in my life when it comes to fear and trusting Him, but this is the year that I am no longer going to be ruled by this. I am declaring war on this and daily giving it up to Him. Not in a small way. Not in a way that is a quick prayer (Lord protect me) and not in a way that I only pray for Him to release this hold on me when it’s hold is on me.
But I’m giving it up daily to Him. Daily whether it’s a “struggle” that day or not. Because the truth of the matter is, while I may not be shivering in my boots with fear and my heart may not be rapidly beating because the winds are howling, it is still there. That hold on me is there whether I am shaking or not. And this is the year that I am going to trust.
Trust that He is going to do something amazing, marvelous and do the great work that He has promised.
He can do this. I trust Him fully. What a glorious Lord we serve.
