When we see Jesus as our friend, we see the purpose of glorifying God; we see the door open to the gifts given by Him, to us!
When your emotions are in turmoil, you will struggle to see how you’re acting or what the truth of your situation is.
It wasn’t that God wouldn’t take my health issues like He would my worries about the pandemic
or state of our country—it was that I hadn’t stopped trying to control them.
Think along the lines of Jesus changing water into wine or multiplying fish and loaves. Miracle Math. God Math.
By personally considering each of His questions, we face His probing truth.
By responding truthfully, may we be drawn into a more intimate walk with Him.
We can no longer go forth and overcome in the ways that we have in past seasons.
Episode #36 – Jay and Jess sit down this week to discuss surrendering to God’s will for their lives in order to experience true peace. They want to share the amazing grace that has occurred once they’ve pushed through the difficult, and uncomfortable days. It’s becoming quite obvious that the “easy” does not exist anymore, and/or gets them nowhere.
If God’s Word, the Holy Spirit’s influence, an inspiring sermon, or God’s moving in your life immediately evokes a “but” response, it invalidates whatever preceded it.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t acknowledge He is the One who sees me through.

Day 268 of Bible Reading Plan – Sometimes we really want to do something for God or accomplish something in our life but we can’t seem to get it done or just keep failing. Maybe we are striving in our own strength or maybe it was not God’s will for us to do it in the first place. But when we seek to do God’s will for our lives and honor God in all we do, others will notice. We are being a living testament of God’s grace when we don’t compromise and are faithful to God, whether or not our plans ever come to fruition.
Today, I feel the intercession of Jesus that is praying for His people for another great push of going low and surrendering all.
Expectations lead to frustration and sin. Expectancy leads to peace and blessings. As we surrender to His sovereignty, we become less. He becomes More.
Honestly, the best way to carry the Good News is with empty hands. Our job is simply to drop the baggage and come empty-handed before the Lord.
Fellow mamas, we aren’t called to be our kids’ savior, but we are called to surrender them to the Savior.

Amazingly, the very act of abiding in Christ deepens our sense of identity and purpose.
Rest is not inactivity but rather it is the activity of victory, the peace that comes with the finished work and the joy that comes when desire is fulfilled.
When He asks us to surrender what we hold dear, it doesn’t mean our sacrifice is easy. It’s tempting to respond fearfully, “God, are you sure?”
