I’m trying to trust God
I’m trying to obey God
I guess what’s not working is the “I’m” trying. I can’t do this God. People say we choose, we decide. I choose You right now, but I don’t fear You enough to obey by the end of the day. I can’t do it, so I give myself totally to You.
Again, today, I turn over my new brain cells to obey You. Only You. Not me. Not my desires. I declare Your strength in me to fast. I trust if this is Your will, You will give me the ability.
I also declare freedom over me for bad feelings, hurts from words & actions of others. Those people are mostly clueless as to how hurtful small comments are to me. So, I turn those thoughts over to You to obey.
I make these declarations and trust God to make them true.
- I confess: I don’t fear God enough. I don’t obey that quiet voice.
- Love does not demand its own way, so I don’t demand my own way, my selfish desires.
- I am patient, kind, gentle.
- It’s not what I want or what I think is best. It’s what God wants for me. for my family.
- I rejoice all day long.
Focus my eyes (and our family’s eyes) on Jesus today. May we always think and call on the name of Jesus.
