Laying it down

Today, I reached the end of my rope. I tried to give everything to Him. . . I really did. Yet somehow, I ended up taking it back and carrying it.

I am apprehensive about the next several days and so I am choosing right here, right now, to surrender. God always knows best and is so very worthy of my trust. Even if things go horribly over the next several days, I will survive. The shop will survive. My customers will survive. There is nothing life or death about what I do each day. I just always want to do my best, and I want to make sure every detail is taken care of. There’s nothing wrong with that–until it turns to control and panic that destroys my peace.

I declare that I will go to bed peacefully, placing everything in His hands. I will sleep sweetly and I will wake ready to go to the job I love. It will be a good day, and I will trust the Lord to use me as He sees fit. May I be a blessing.

I'm a homeschool mom and the proud wife of a hard working farmer. We live in the sticks and drive 20 miles to a town of any size. I live to serve the One who saved my soul, and He daily loads me with blessings. I started this blog to share my journey through breast cancer. So far, I have only done a few warm up stretches, and I pray I will remain faithful and be an encouragement to others traveling this road with me. I know this journey will be rough, but I also know it will be perfect, because my God does all things well. I am not afraid.
