Give it to GOD, again

"Trust in the Lord, with all of your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5

So often things are simply beyond our control. We cannot do one thing about it. Getting rid of itgetting over itgetting control of itmaking a new plangetting an new perspective or getting it done may not work as a solution. There is nothing to do BUT give it totally to God, and trust that in His wisdom it will work to His glory. Giving it to him is certainly not a last resort, but the first resort..again! :)

Certainly, doing so is easier said than done. It is a skill, that deserves practice and constant assurance that you have still left it there. God's hands are more capable than ours, and dont forget that really we know too little of the whole story to make the proper decisions anyways!

Again, only time with Him on a constant basis can ensure that your heart is fully surrendered to His bidding. Only constant reminding via scriptures of His promises, His truths and His faithfulness can keep our little forgetful brains focused in that direction.

There is true peace waiting, for those hearts that allow Him to bear the burden of your heart, soul, mind and body. Never underestimate Him, and His ability to give you peace beyond understanding...

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

  3. Just stopping by from the blog hop. I am now following your blog & look forward to reading more posts.

  4. Yup - one of the most transforming passage of scripture I have ever experienced is Philippians 4:6-7.

    I had a stroke just before my mother gave me a book and a teaching based on that scripture. It was the book called "From Prison to Praise". It made such a transforming difference in my life that she later invited me as a guest speaker to tell the tale.

    Wonderful wonderful post. I could not have said it better myself. The iFellowship Blog Hop brings such blessings, inspiration and encouragement. It may take me all week to read all the posts but your post has proven why it is worth the effort. I am pleased to become your newest follower.
