And then the Lord whispers to me.
He asks me if I trust Him.
He asks me to loosen my grip just a bit.
And then, as I open my hands, as I let go of my obsessive, clingy tendencies, peace sweeps in.
Peace invades my life.
And I find it slightly easier to leave the house in the evening for prayer groups, committee meetings and girls night out.
In fact, I find myself feeling revitalized after those evenings away.
Because God knows that I need that time.
He knows that my heart needs refreshment and encouragement.
He knows that I need some space.
He knows what will happen when I let go: He will have room to provide, to move, to grow us through this deployment. He will have room for His glory to be shown.
“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19, HCSB).
