Hey ladies (and any male viewers)! I’m so glad you have joined me on this ride called life. I have a feeling that this year, this glorious year of 2013, is going to be an exciting year jammed pack with the unexpected. As I was praying for the Lord to give me a word for this year to filter ALL of my decisions through, God began to show me the areas of my life He didn’t have access to or complete control over. The pieces that I clung to, for whatever reason. He began to show me that He wanted me … ALL OF ME!
So, after a major “terrible-twos-temper-tantrum”, I surrendered my heart, my fears, and my will over to the Lord and willingly accepted the word He had chosen for me – COMMIT!
For a bubble person such as myself, someone who has avoided the weekly planners or calendars like the plague, this terrified me. It’s not like I have a fear of commitments. I’ve been in a relationship with my husband for the past 15 years; so commitments I’m good with. What terrified me was the unknown things I would be asked to commit to!
But thankfully the Lord’s grace … the grace that is sufficient for all situations … showed up just in time and replaced my fears with His peace. His indescribable peace! Now I’m really excited to see what’s in store. Still terrified, but in a good way, because I know who is operating this ride. It’s much like the feeling one has right before getting on the biggest, longest, and fastest roller coaster ever built. You know the one … you’re not sure if you are just giddy or if you are about to throw up. Hopefully most days I will be giddy about the ride, but I can’t guarantee the latter won’t happen. So if your willing to get on with me …
Strap in … hang on … or if your feeling brave, let go and stretch your arms to the sky!
Me … I’m choosing to let go … completely … throw my hands up, and continuously shout praises to my King until my ride comes to a complete stop!
