Dear Lord, help me to let go of what is not mine to do or say. I am certainly not one to even pretend to know the hows and whys of living. I am no one to talk or advise or offer instructions.
My life has been a series of roads I’ve traveled that were made almost impassable; innumerable potholes, I dug myself, lay there waiting for me to navigate; thinking I knew best, I never used a map or stopped to ask directions for a different route.
Yet Your Word was with me at all times; I just never bothered to think there might be another way; a better way; a way to live without being in charge.
I was in my own way; I was and am my biggest problem. Dear Lord, help me to be still, be quiet, and know that You are and always have been in charge. Help me to live knowing You are God Almighty, Merciful Father. Amen
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Giving up doesn’t always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go. ~Author Unknown
