This week I was told by the Holy Spirit to step out of the way! He told me to stop bringing up the past to God, stop reminding myself of past failures and disappointments. He told me that God knows all that and he doesn't need me reminding Him every five seconds about what I've been through - HE was there with me! It was time for me to let go of the past and all the bad experiences it contained. If my hands continued to hold on to the past there would be no room in them to hold "the PRESENT".
If God's voice couldn't be any clearer he led me to this scripture in the book of Isaiah and if that doesn't scream "stop beating a dead horse" - I don't know what does.
Before my appointment last Saturday I was so worried I could hardly sleep I prayed for peace and finally fell asleep. Hours later God woke me up and told me that everything would be great and that I needed to trust him. As I walked out of my apartment on the way to the doctor at 5am the sky was still dark, the sidewalks were covered with fragments of ice and it glittered with every step I took. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. In that moment I knew God was speaking to me, both in my heart and in nature - reminding me that he was there and that he was paving the way before me and dusting it with glitter.
Your Turn: Is there an area of your life that God is asking for your complete trust? Are you finding it hard or easy to surrender?
