Today we’re writing on: Willing.
Waffling back and forth, wondering whether it could be possible. Brows furrowed in intense concentration mixed with worry, I ponder it. Am I willing?
Give up control.
Allow faith to outweigh my worries.
I wonder, is it even possible to do? Through Him, it is.
Friends, I’ve been praying for direction lately, and it always comes back to the same thing. I need to be willing to let it go. He wants to take the reigns, but I must be willing to set them down first.
Talk about difficult. It’s natural to want to take control, but sometimes it’s better not to.
Indecision dances dangerously around me, tempting me to clasp tightly onto my life. Unwilling to give and inch. Fighting against what God’s asking me to do.
In a moment of clarity, I realize. He needs me to do this.
I let the reigns slip slowly from my fingers, uncertain. And in a flash He’s taken them up, and He’s guiding me. Filling me with peace, unexpected and utterly fulfilling.
All He wanted was for me to be willing.
