Letting the Lord of life
work in our lives for good and His Glory.
So much easier to talk about than to do.
Memories of myself doing the overhead monkey bars.
Eyeing my destination
and grabbing the next. Swinging back and forth in the air.
Always struggling with the letting go.
Looking down; fearing that fall
Squeezing tightly to the bar I had in my hands.
Trust Me, He whispers so gently.
We can trust Him above all.
People may fail us but Jesus never.
No, the Great I Am is forever Faithful.
My thoughts wonder to those who have taken steps forward in trust
only to experience challenges beyond their abilities to understand.
Parents who have adopted and need the prayers and support of others to help them.
Ones in jobs that test them day after day. Difficult relationships.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart”
Learning to let go and allow Him to lead.
one day at a time.
Listening to the Wind of the Spirit
and allowing Him to move us at His Will.
Hanging onto those monkey bars
I learned quickly
that I must not look down.
That was the end if I did.
No, I had to steel my focus on the goal.
A few more bars.
grabbing the next. Swinging right and left
until finally I was there. Shining moments.
Life lessons to heed.
Eyes on the goal.
Take my life, Lord, and let it be
consecrated to Thee.
Simple prayers of trust
and then expecting Him to answer.
Faith building moments
Faith growing opportunities.
Leaning on His everlasting Arms that cannot fail.
But I never know that until I take the first step.
