I'm living in the moment when trusting You means everything; I'm living in the moment when believing You means everything.
I bow down in my spirit, I slow down for a minute and lean into You. --Jon ThurlowFather, this morning my need for You runs deep. In my own strength my efforts are paltry at best. I lean into You, into your mercy, into your loving-kindness, into your grace that covers all my gaps, all my inadequacies.
I unclench the fist of my heart and surrender control. I surrender to your relentlessly pursuing love. I let You love me the way I want my son to let me love him--no fear, no resistance, no unbelief.
...and then he told me, My grace is enough; it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ's strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become. --2 Corinthians 12
