I pray that we’re each able to embrace, look up from, and invite others into our discomfort today.
Allowing yourself to be led is a courageous decision, resting is rooted in wisdom, and choosing contentment is a sign of strength.
The truth is, the best remedy for my control problem is not to try to control my behavior further, but to focus on what Jesus willingly did for me.
God is graciously pointing out to me that trusting him is the posture that I should live in.
Right now, we live in a dark time, but we have a hope in Jesus that can’t be stolen, removed, revoked, or destroyed.
But what if our pain, our struggle, and our brokenness are actually good things?
This recovering control freak is indeed walking out her recovery.
Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of steps in front of you, I pray that you would have the courage to take a single step toward him, following him along the way.
During difficulties, God isn’t as concerned with our circumstances as he is about our identities. If we, in the midst of unemployment or a break-up or depression or pain, can see ourselves as we truly are, beloved children of God, it will change how we live.
Have you ever used the excuse of “faith” to shut down your emotions?
