recently, i’ve realized that one of God’s greatest gifts to me has been teaching me how to let things go to Him. oftentimes, when we begin this journey of walking with and knowing our Creator, we think that is something that should come naturally, even easily. we frustrate ourselves and throw Scripture around and don’t realize that by even trying to do it without Him, we haven’t let anything go.
fortunately, our God knows us better than we know ourselves. He is the ultimate in patient and meets us where we are. as He’s brought into these places of great unknown in my life, i see Him patiently beckoning me to come be with Him, to tell Him what’s on my heart, and to listen as He comforts and reassures me. there is such a release that happens and i can only describe it as true rest.
this song, Great is Thy Faithfulness, has been going through my mind non-stop, though i only remember a few of the lines:
“Great is Thy Faithfulness,
Great is Thy Faithfulness.
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have wanted Thy hand hath provided.
Great is Thy Faithfulness,
Lord unto Me.”
and “There is no shadow of turning in Thee,” is in there somewhere, but that chorus just keeps going through my mind, and then i’m singing it, over and over, as if my spirit cannot will not be contained.
