Luke 12:22- 34
Such great scripture, and such a purposeful message for me to wake up and read this morning. How often I find myself mulling over, stressing over, worrying over things such as: school, my job, my future career, and many other things that I lose sight of the One protecting me. I lose sight of all the ways I have been provided for, and the ways I have been taken care of. I think it's a control issue, that I need to surrender. If I am worrying over it, that means I think I have some sort of control over the situation or the outcome when in reality I don't want to be the dictator of my results, I want Christ to be. When did I become such a control freak?
Sometimes I find myself stressing over the to-do list of the day as well, that I either choose not to spend time in communion with the Lord, or I rush through it to move onto the next thing. So when I woke up and read my devotion for the day it said, "Demonstrate your trust in Me, by sitting quietly in My presence. Put aside all that is waiting to be done, and refuse to worry about anything." -Jesus Calling.
This is a passage in the book of Luke, that I need to live by on a daily basis. This is something I struggle with, and I need to be better about surrendering my worries and my attitude.
Do you struggle with this too? I think this is a great passage to commit to memory too, so that I can be reminded, and that I can be an encouragement to those around me.
So today friends, lets live in freedom knowing that the Lord is our provider, and that ultimately that is what matters.
Love and Surrender
