I don’t know about you – but I need to be told REPEATEDLY that it is not by my power. I am significantly more stressed and less energetic when I don’t FIRST rely on the Lord and allow him to equip me. I skate by for the most part – on my own ability… but I’m like a rollercoaster – trying to teach kids how to understand their emotions and ride the waves with confidence and here I am being tossed to and fro by the wind.
I loved today’s verse from the YouVersion Bible app. Do you have this yet? I’ve found it’s one of the best ways I get myself to “slow down” and read the Bible… [Ugh. a slower life. that sounds amazing.]
Anyhow. I needed this reminder – I am not in control [my flesh longs to be]. And after this rough morning – it’s as if God had to knock some sense into me.
