I was reading in my Jesus Calling devotional a few days ago and it's just stickin' with me..."relax in my healing, holy Presence. Be still while I transform your heart and mind. Let go of cares and worries, so that you can receive My Peace. Cease striving, and know that I am God....It is through knowing me intimately that you become like Me. This requires spending time alone with Me. Let go, relax, be still, and know that I am God.
Through the trials of this year...actually the last 3 years...I feel like I am FINALLY learning to completely let go, relax, and kinda be still. Why is the "be still" part so hard?? I am seeing how completely in control of my life the Lord is...so I am trusting and slowly surrendering my all to Him so He can complete His perfect will and plan in my life.
I am so thankful for all I've been through...I never want to go through a lot of this again...but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am so thankful for my amazing husband. He's gone through many trials in the last few years but through it all has remained steady, strong, faithful, and steadfast. His faith has been unwavering, he's been my rock. I couldn't have come out this strong without him.
Please keep praying for us. We're still in the waiting game with the baby. BUT...I have so much more peace than I had even 3 weeks ago. I know it is because so many of you are praying. Please continue to pray that I can "let go of cares and worries" and receive the perfect Peace in Christ alone.
