held close...

Thoughts of His concern for our every need flood my mind today. Be it fear, worry, doubt...He patiently waits for me to turn it over in His hands. Watching to see how long I will wrestle with these emotions, longing to take it from my grasp just to give me relief. Oh why do we hold on so tight to feelings that have no power over us. The very things that Jesus himself left the throne to conquer on our behalf by the spilling of His precious blood. Will I choose to claim the victory that is rightfully mine or choose to re-crucify Him when I try and battle anything alone denying His power to handle it for me. It boils down to trust...will I trust that His will no matter what it is, is 100% best for me? Will I accept that His Word is truth & that the real power (scripture) lay at my fingertips....ready to be absorbed to my core & proclaimed with my tongue... Isaiah 55:11 "so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it." We have been made for His glory to accomplish more than our feeble minds have the ability to dream about. He longs for us to walk in our Kingdom authority instead of being hung up on the cares of this world. He longs for us to trust Him for our next step because it's in trusting Him that faith grows and its in our faith that God is pleased.  I choose to trust God, to have huge crazy faith in His power,to be held close to Him the very same way as a mother I hold my babies...   Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6



  1. This is beautiful. I know exactly what you're talking about. I want everyone to find that freedom of surrendering every worry, every thought to God and living fully in his grace.

  2. A war that until recently, I was losing. Praise God for his longsuffering, but I've come to the realization, quick obedience is what He's after in me. Thankful for the Word, always showing us where we can come up higher. Trust, its so hard for me, but so worth it. The peace it gives is indescribable. Love how He's using you girlfriend. You're an inspiration.
