Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you. (1 Pet 5:7)
I’m learning (unfortunately not as quickly as I'd like to) that there’s only one thing more destructive than a toxic conversation or listening with approval to bitter gossip – it’s our ability to agree with the circumstances that surround us and our giving up on GOD’s intervention, then sulkily slinking away and feeling sorry for ourselves ...!
So when this happens, I go back to the faithful old poem
As children bring their broken toys
With tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to GOD
because He is my Friend.
But then, instead of leaving Him
In peace to work alone,
I hung around,
and tried to help,
With ways that were ‘my own' !
At last, I snatched them back and cried
“How could You be so slow?”
“My Child,” He said, “What could I do?
You never did let go!”
Take a deep breath and tell the world, ‘TODAY’ is the day that I’m going to let go and let GOD!
