Do you know I am a mess?
Every. Single. Day.
But God does not see me that way.
Only by HIS power can I do anything.
When I try to do it on my own…
I am a mess
I see darkness
I am lost
I am fearful
When I surrender and let His power work in me…
He quiets me
He gives me joy and contentment
I am clean
He provides the Light
He shows me the Way
He gives me faith
He stills me
I do absolutely nothing by my own power.
That is the beauty of the gospel. When we realize that we surrender our old life for the new, His power does immeasurably more than we can imagine.
Me? A homeschool mom? Yup.
Me? Living this life I do? Yup.
It is immeasurably more than I ever imagined.
But it is done ALL by His power.
And every single day I can choose to surrender to Him and let His power work. Or try to do it on my own.
When we try to do it on our own and put our pleasures and needs first, we will always fail.
When we surrender our lives to Him, for His purposes, He is always glorified.
Can you imagine if we truly surrendered it all to Him?
The power that could be unleashed in our lives…
to do immeasurably more than we ever imagined!
