“Even small faith is completely able to hold us. If you feel like you’re slipping today, backtrack & remember where God has been faithful in your life. Recounting His faithfulness reminds us we’re not dangling by a thread out on our own. Our God is faithful. And we are held.” @lysaterkeurst
Remember the mountains and valleys that brought you here.
Remember the things
you never thought
you would accomplish, but did.
You may have a long way to go,
but may you never discredit
how far you have come.
May you never forget
you are still on a journey.
May you always remember
this endless, boundless grace
that continues to find you
over and over again.
—Morgan Harper Nichols
“You have been through so much, but may you know that by grace, it is not in vain. You will walk away from all of this and you will never be the same. You will have a story to tell. A story of hope, resilience and faithfulness. Even if things do not turn out the way you thought they would, you will be able look back and see the good. You will be able to look back and see how you have grown and how all along, you were never alone.” @morganharpernichols
I lay down my need to understand why things happen the way they do. I lay down my fears about others walking away and taking their love with them. I lay down my desire to prove my worth. I lay down my resistance to fully trust Your thoughts, Your ways, and Your plans, Lord. I lay down being so self-consumed in an attempt to protect myself. I lay down my anger, unforgiveness, and stubborn ways that beg me to build walls when I sense hints of rejection. I lay all these things down with my broken boards and ask that Your holy fire consume them until they become weightless ashes. And as I walk away, my soul feels safe. Held. And truly free to finally be me. @lysaterkeurst
Let’s remind our hearts of this truth tonight…
God is good at being God.
We don’t have to try to fix what He hasn’t assigned us to fix. We don’t need to try to manipulate or control or spend all our emotions trying to figure it out.
We can let Him be God. And free ourselves from the impossible assignment of trying to keep it all together.
"In the secret place
I find you in your sweet embrace.
In the stillness Lord I'm waiting here to hear Your voice calling me, drawing me
Jesus You're all I need.
Just one moment here with You means more than anything to me"
