just thinkin...

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.


  1. Love that book!! I remember reading that devotion as well. It was perfect! And I agree, letting go and being still--sounds simple, but at times is hard. Especially when we give it up to God and then find ourselves fidgeting like a child because God's not doing something fast enough. Typical, right? "I want it NOW, Daddy!" I love to visualize the expression God must have on His face when we do this!! HA
    Will be continuing prayers for you all. God is so good and He loves you all so much! Hallelujah for His neverending love and perfect plans!

  2. You've made me cry! The exact words you've describe I've been feeling for wks now! It's like you've read my heart and put it into words! The past 3 yrs have been awful for us and being still hasn't been exactly easy for us watching my daughter life struggle to seeing my life wither away ibecause of disease & in defeat. Yet God has said to Wade and I be at peace, trust Him, we are in his hands. It's Definatly, your right , a different way of trust we have to depend on God. Being still and content. So thank you for writing this as I know what I can pray for you and praise god for those blessings he's shown you in this path of faith! Your not alone girl! I'm here for ya and know I may not be going through the same exact journey but from the heart we are feeling the same. Thanks for blessing me today with this blog! Becca M.
