The Word - "And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?" Luke 12:25-26 ESV
A Thought - worrying, bargaining, manipulating, being religious, following gurus, bullying... Long is the list of the ways that we attempt to gain control over the world around us. None of them can add even a single hour to the span of life that God has given us. When we can finally accept our powerlessness, we can begin to relax into God's loving and all powerful arms. Once fully in His arms, we will no longer feel the need to control, because our trust will be in the One who is always in control. God's got you!
A Prayer - Lord, I acknowledge the battle within me to either take control, or leave it all up to You. Your Word says that you are all-knowing and all-powerful. Given the choice between my control our Yours, I choose You. Today, help me to live the reality of that choice. And thank You in advance for Your patience, because I may need to make this choice a few more times before it takes. - In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe and transform your life, 60 seconds at a time. - Scott
