Surrendering Everything to Him



      A challenge has come for me to trust Him anew.  Will I be obedient when I am not in control?  Will I trust my Father in Heaven completely?  When everything seems to go against everything I hoped, will I still believe Him? 

How hard to surrender all of me, to trust Him and to take my hands off, allowing His hands to be the only ones on...

  I am seeing and learning this:

 God can do anything He wants to do
He can do it anytime or whenever He wishes to do it
He will do it just as He wants
He will do it for whatever purpose He chooses to accomplish His perfect Will

All of this may not make me happy, but God is sovereign (He is in control of all things and over all things).  I need to come to the point where I can wholeheartedly agree, "Not my will, but Yours."

I am prayerfully working on it. But I will let you know that I am struggling as each new brick gets put on the tower of my life.

Ephesians 1:11

In Christ we were chosen to be God's people, because from the very beginning God had decided this in keeping with his plan. And he is the One who makes everything agree with what he decides and wants

You know He has my heart and that I love Him.  He is asking me to come to a new level, pulling out many areas of my comfort and my *seeming* control, asking me, inviting me to trust Him yet more.

Some building doesn't come easy, Kimmie, but it will be solid because of the foundation. Praying for you....

I LOVED this imagery....
"as each new brick gets put on the tower of my life."

If we build in our own strength and with our own plans, we build a tower of Babel. Proverbs 14:1 talks about a wise woman building her home.

You are hearing the Lord's voice and are responding to His changes in the building plan. This is wisdom. We will pray as you continue to build that tower as a wise woman!

I think the hardest part is trying to hear through all the clutter and noise. I can understand why monks and such like live in isolation and sometimes don't allow speaking - please don't you stop talking though Kimmie.

Kimmie,

You are focused on HIM. That's what matters & that is what He wants. Praying for your strength and peace.
