I’m trying to be patient and trusting about something today. And it’s so hard. I keep giving it to Jesus. And then taking it back. Giving it to Jesus. And taking it back. I’m exhausted from going back and forth so many times. It makes me wonder why I can’t just bring it to Jesus, and leave it there, in a heap at His feet. I can’t make it better, I can’t speed it up. So why am I doing this to myself over and over? Just above my desk I have a lavender sticky note that says, “Jesus, what are you inviting me to today?” As I was about to pick my troubles up, yet again, I took a moment to ask Jesus that question, to which he responded “To trust me.” That’s a hard one at times, for a recovering control freak like me. But I’m going to give it a shot. After all, every other time when I have trusted Jesus, and left it to him, it’s turned out fine. In fact, better than fine. It seems to turn out better than I could ever have imagined. And so, now, I’m going to bring my troubles to Jesus, and just leave them with him. And not take them back in five minutes.
How about you? What is Jesus inviting you to today? What do you need to leave with him?
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen”
