I like to believe I have no struggle with being in control of my own life. I like to know what’s going to happen next and why. When you live in a life full of decisions and consequences, it becomes a struggle to find the answers to all your questions. I struggle to let go of control. Our lives are already in His hands. I’ve realized that being in control of my own life has a lot more to do with trusting God and questioning less. Imagine if we gave all our worries, stresses, and frustrations over to Him? The beauty in life would become more clear to us!
In my life right now I’ve had to learn the power of prayer in a different light. Did you ever pray for something you wanted so badly for your family? I’ve prayed every night for the same thing and I’ve begun to speak words that I struggle with accepting: God denying us. The pit of my stomach wants to swish everywhere with the thought of this not going the way we want. This lesson is one of the hardest for me in allowing God to control my life. I know He has it all planned out, but I’ve never allowed myself to pray to Him in accepting denial.
I pray that God will speak into your life today with warming words, confidence, and understanding. His plan for our lives is beautiful. Beauty follows joyous moments, stormy journeys, and unexpected events. Open your heart to the acceptance of denial and breathe in the life He knows is ours to adventure. Denial is not God denying you happiness, but rather guiding you in His way for His purpose.
