As I write this post, I'm meditating (as I have done in the past and will undoubtedly do again in the future) on trust and God's will. He is in control. He has given me free will and He allows me to learn the easy way or the hard way. But ultimately His will prevails because He is God and He is all-powerful. Because of His love for me, I will get to the place He wants me. What awesome patience He exhibits.
Let go, Robin, and let God!
Jesus stands behind me, His arms outstretched. He smiles gently and His gaze is tender. I release a long, slow breath and feel my body relax. I close my eyes. Then I allow myself to fall backward, like those people in that old iced tea commercial who fall backward into a swimming pool. Only I fall into the strong, loving, trustworthy arms of Jesus, my Lord. Ahhhhh…..
The name of the LORD is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe. (Proverbs 18:10, NASU)
"Jesus, Your name is my strong tower. I run into Your name, and I am safe."
What an awesome truth that is!
