Word Filled Wednesday...human effort


I read this verse yesterday and it was such a good reminder to me. This move has been orchestrated by God, why then would I allow myself to worry over all the little details? After reading this verse yesterday, I felt a huge burden lift from me. God is in control. We have a little statue of a sailboat in our home given to us in our last move. It reads...Where God guides...He provides. How could I forget that He lead us down this path. He cares about the details, He will provide!! Our home will sell...in His timing...not mine! Now, that doesn't mean I just sit back and relax for the next 6 weeks. I still have a to-do list that I need to work on, but I need to quit carrying the load and trying to do everything in my own effort! Since releasing this burden yesterday, I have found myself going through my list of things to do with joy, not dread!

So what are you hanging onto? Give it to God, stop trying to do things on your own effort!! You won't regret it!!

    God gave me this verse yesterday too and all day long I made a conscious effort to let Him lead me ... not the other way around as I so often want to do!
    Bless you for speaking truth here.
    God always provides.
