“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
Once again, I find myself in that place. That place where I have to force myself to be still. That place where I have to be quiet. That place where the Lord will meet me if I will be quiet, be still, just BE. If I will let HIM do the talking. Yet, I am anxious and I am concerned. But, why should I be anxious and concerned?
Therefore, since we have a great high priest
who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God,
let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
For we do not have a high priest
who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,
but we have one who has been tempted in every way,
just as we are—yet was without sin.
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence,
so that we may receive mercy and
find grace to help us in our time of need.
You know, there isn’t anything I am going through that the Lord doesn’t know about. There isn’t any burden I will bear that he doesn’t understand. But, I must have the courage and strength to let it go…to leave it at the cross…to not pick it up again. My burdens, He will bear, if only I will let him.
Lord, you know the desires of my heart. You know what I need to get through this day and this week. You know what troubles me, what scares me and what worries me. Lord, please, please give me the grace to COMPLETELY and TOTALLY let go…COMPLETELY and TOTALLY turn it over to you. Grace to leave it at the cross and not pick it up again, not later today, not later tomorrow or later this week or next week. And, Lord, thank you, again…for your Son who died on the cross, for this season of Lent when we reflect on the sufferings he endured for our salvation. Thank you for your blessings. Please keep my family safe…physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today…peace and blessings…
