God…I Give It To You

dreamstimefree_260516

I am not sure of myself in this.

God, I give it to you.

What if I foul up?

God, I give it to you.

I feel so out of place. I have so much to learn.

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? (Galations 1:10 NIV)

God, I give it to you.

My shoulders are tense. I feel stress.

God, I give it to you.

I stared at my desk, piled high with unfamiliar tasks. I prayed. I trusted. I gave it up. The warmth of peace swaddled my being.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:4 NIV)

I was reminded that God is in charge, always.

There are lessons to be learned from discomfort…reminders of where we should always be. In our place. His place.

Father. I give it to you.
