When my 3sunz were little they loved the movie “101 Dalmatians”. I can still quote the scenes from the old VHS tape we saw over and over. . . I woke thinking about Cruella DeVille. Things that make you go ‘Hmmmm’, right? She was a driven beast. Now, in my mind everything/every thought happens for a reason – so . . . maybe the Cruella in me needs to back off a bit. How ‘bout you?
You sure you’re heading down the right track? You needing clarity?
Let go of the empty weigh-down thingys.
Trust your Shield.
Simply trust the journey He is providing.
Ease off the gas pedal. Let Him unfold His Spirit in you without trying
Wouldn’t your life be more blissful if you didn’t drive yourself so rigid?
Wouldn’t you be present to your Maker’s peace, if you simply allowed the Holy Spirit to take you, instead of you trying to take your hours and wrestle them into the shape you think they should be?
Surrender is not about giving up our dreams, our hopes, our desires. It’s not about sinking into apathy. It’s about letting go of our notions of how life ‘should be’ and letting the Spirit, guide us back to ourselves. Sometimes the greatest act of courage is the act of surrender.
Surrender. That’s the place your dreams bloom.
Hand it over.
It’s Yours, Jesus.
It’s all Yours.
Save the puppies.
‘I will hide in God,
Who is my rock and my refuge.
He is my shield
and my salvation,
My refuge and high tower.
Thank you, O my Savior,
For saving me from all my enemies.’
2 Samuel 22:3 (TLB)
