Long time…

I have been on a break of sorts. My kiddos and I have been fighting off viruses. So I took a break from sharing with you.

I was feeling dry and spent. But God reminded me that “His diving power has given us everything required for life and godliness.” 2 Peter 1:3 (HCSB)

Everything. His power gives us everything so we can live godly lives.

I don’t have to feel spent because God in His grace gives me what I need…

Why then do I turn around and try to do life on my own – as if I could even keep my heart beating on my own?

I act as if my life depends on me when in reality it all depends on Him. He keeps my heart pumping, my lungs breathing, my body working. I have no control and it is best that way. Don’t get me wrong, I am still a recovering control-freak. However God knows what is best for me and He sees the whole picture. I only see a small blurry portion of all that God is doing.

Yes He is trustworthy of me to rest upon. He gives me power and He works out my life for my good. May I live in that spiritual state of laying down my will and taking up only His will.

What would change in my life if I really lived that way? What would change in your life if you lived like that?

Would you share with me?
