“Be Still”

So often I’ve found myself questioning God. Why Lord? My thoughts running rampant about what the future holds for me and my family. Chaos floods my mind as I try to understand it and figure it all out. I get out my pen and paper and plot and plan. But nothing comes of it. I plot and plan in vein. I pray without ceasing but I’m left feeling disappointed in His response or lack of.

Then this well known thought creeps into my head, “Be still my child and know that I am God.”

So I choose to listen, not immediately and definitely with some hesitation as I fear what He’s about to say, but I still listen. There’s something so sweet about opening up your heart to Jesus. Letting go of all reservations, letting go of the things that I’ve allowed to entangle my mind and thoughts, letting go of those worries that keep me up at night, just letting GO!

In my attempts to surrender my heart to God and just let Him do His thing, I’ve found such a FREEDOM. A freedom in surrendering my dreams to Him. A freedom in letting go. And as I’ve done that I have this great sense of peace. I know that my dreams are safe with Him. I know that I am safe in Him. I’m feeling secure in His plan for my life and I’ve let go of all my notions of the future. I’ve decided not to worry anymore and in letting go of my worry, God has filled me with peace. Abundant peace. I feel secure, protected, watched over and in His grip.

He has heard me. He has heard my prayers. He has answered me with His peace. A gentle peace that whispers, “My Child, I’ve got this. I’ve got it handled” as though I needed reminding. So I choose to rest in His peace, rest in His embrace and remain in Him. I know that that’s where I’m safe.

So I surrender my all to You Jesus.

“I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.”

Psalms 62:1-2 NLT

HILLSONG: Then Sings My Soul

Behold I have a friend

The Spirit breathing holy fire within

My ever present help

Speaking truth when I can’t find it

Light up this broken heart and light my way

‘Til my time on earth is done

Oh, Holy Spirit

Breathe in me like Kingdom come

Oh, Holy Spirit

Let Your work in me be done

Then sings my soul

Then sings my soul

How great Your love is

How great Your love is

Thank You Jesus!
