I am in a season with a lot of unknowns. I am being still & knowing He is God. I am knowing He will fight for me, I only need to be still. I am praying. I am trusting….
Or so I thought. Then I came across this.
“In ALL your ways submit to Him & He will make your path straight.” ~Proverbs 3:6
All. Not some. Not what I feel like. Not what I trust He can take care of. Not the things I give up out of exhaustion from hanging on so tight. All. No less.
It is so hard for me to take my hands off of things. To trust Him fully. To trust that He doesn’t need my help. How challenging total submission is. I always feel like I am doing such a great job when I let go of a few things. But then I find myself trying to take them back in a moment of panic or cling even tighter to the things I am still holding onto. Like a form of a security blanket.
What would it look like to just let go? Of every worry, every concern, every tight grip that I’m hanging onto for dear life? What would happen?
“He will make your path straight.”
My job is to walk in obedience. That’s it. One step at a time. And trust that the path He is taking me on is the best path. For His will & purpose. Not mine.
“True success is if I stay faithful prior to the result. If I stay faithful from the beginning to this point, I am successful. It’s not based on what you do, it’s based on His faithfulness & my faith in that.” -Eric Johnson
