What I always feared has happened to me. What I dreaded has come true. (Job 3:25)
I used to think that it all depended on ‘me’ - all on me ... my performance, my prayers, my actions, my reactions - my being ‘good’.
Every time I messed up or something bad happened, I’d have to go back and sift through each action or reaction, each performance, each prayer ...!
Then daylight dawned and Jesus asked if I’d had enough of trying to do it all myself. Yes, I screamed! Help me to let go ...! In love, he prised my white knuckled fingers off the steering wheel of my broken life and gently moved me into the passenger seat.
I abrogated my rights to myself. In giving him control of each turn, each problem, each outcome, each decision, I found peace and freedom.
I know who I am. Like the song says, ‘I’m no longer a slave to fear, I am a child of GOD.‘ ❤️
