From start to finish today has felt like a push and gift all at the same time. A struggle, but also a joy. I’ve felt really tired and worn out. My body has been slow and aching and not able to do things I usually find easy to do. But I guess it’s teaching me to pace myself and be gentle on myself, as deadlines tomorrow has caused a little less sleep than normal!
Each moment I’ve been learning to trust into Gods hands and believe that things will work out well and on time. Some wonderful news and my gift for today, was getting a positive emailed response to a request I had lately. Hearing them reply positively made me realise the beauty of prayer and giving God my desires and then the willingness to let those go and trust Him.
I’m realising more and more that peace doesn’t come when we feel in control of life.
It’s the opposite. Peace actually comes when we believe enough to “let go” and trust that the right things will come to pass. I don’t mean be passive. But I mean to realise your desires pursue them whole heartedly but also remain in a place where you know and trust that who you are is not defined in what you do, say or believe. But it is found in your Maker. Who is unchanging and has an eternal grace and supernatural love for you. A love that no one else could even begin to express to you. A love that will set your life free.
So thank you Jesus today for showing me the beauty of trust and letting go and seeing what you do when I ask for big things trusting that you’re a good Father and more than able to provide.
