Letting go.


There are times that I tell God that I want whatever He wants for me.  Sometimes, I even mean it.  Other times, I’m afraid to tell Him I want what He wants, because…

Well, because, what if He doesn’t want what I want?  For real.

So, to play it safe, I steer clear of surrendering a thing or two.

But, that’s not playing it safe.

It might even be rebellion disguised as a “I’m not ready to give that part of me up just yet.”

I’ve had a little something something in my life like that.  This week, I gave it all to Him.  I said these words to God:

I want whatever You want for me. 

Wherever you want me to be.  Whatever you want me to do.  THAT’S what I want.

And, I meant it.

His ways are higher than our ways.

His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.

He even loves me more than my mama.  And, that’s sayin’ a lot, folks.

When is the last time you told Him you want whatever He wants?  And meant it?

    LOL ….did you tell your mama you did this??????

  4. Dusty, what helps me is praying, Lord let my desires be YOUR desires! God knows our hearts and I think this surrendering you have done even if fear comes, or “what if’s come” then God knows your heart! He knows you want to please Him! God knows what your desires are already. God loves you. I feel it from you Dusty! And I know it would please God to give you your hearts desires! Great blog! love you!

    Dusty,
    Your Mom gave me that same scripture about God loving us more than our own parents and loving our children more than us , and we know how much we love our kids and how much our parents love us! I had turned it all over to him except for the situation with my daughter…Well, he has that too now, and I pray for His will not mine because His may not be mine but He does know the desires of our hearts! Thanks for your prayers!
