Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Letting go

This was asked to me recently...

Has God ever allowed the threat of trouble in your life to drive you to your knees? If so, what did you learn through the experience?

And oh my did it hit home. I think I have spent more time on my knees the last six months than probably my entire life. Learning that without Him, I would not have survived the last several months. I can't do it, I could not rely on my own self-sufficiency. I wish I could describe to you the feeling of knowing He is carrying me, the peace that I have had so many times. Peace that can only be from Him, because otherwise it just doesn't make sense. The overwhelming feeling of knowing that He will never let go of me.

For the LORD will go ahead of you;
yes, the God of Israel will protect
you from behind. Isaiah 52:12

When life gets crazy, no matter the situation, have the courage to turn to Him. When there is less of us, there is more of Him.

"You're blessed when you're
at the end of your rope.
With less of you
there is more of God
and his rule." Matthew 5:3

Let go of that rope, He will be there to catch you. Never letting go of you, He will guide and sustain you no matter what.
