“fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
In the midst of battling fear, processing change, and feeling worn, during a difficult yet sweet time in the Word re-reading the same two passages of Scripture (Joshua 1 and Isaiah 41) for what was going on days, the desperate prayer of my heart was this:
Lord, what more do you want from me? What more do I have to give?
And His response was this:
And not just once. And not just for a moment. I want all of you. For a lifetime. Of moment-by-moment surrender and following.
I want you to choose to rest in My presence over and over again.
When it’s easy and when it’s not.
When you want to and when you don’t.
When you think you can do this life on your own and when you know you cannot.
I want you with Me.
I want everything. anything.
