Five Minute Friday – Here

3 Aug
So here I am.
Pulling up a chair to spend time with you.

I am here in that place again.
You’ve brought another change just when I hit that stride. 

You know in my heart that I want to do change well, but it seems that this time the ground beneath me shook a little and I can’t seem to get my footing.

So here I come to You.
To ask for the wisdom and courage to do change well this time.

This time I have to rely on You.
All those other times I thought I could get a handle on it.
And you managed to look past my pride in that and bring me through.
Here I can’t even imagine doing this in my own strength. 
Here it feels like stepping out of the boat all over again.

You ask only that I follow.
You ask that I trust You.

And so I come here to turn it all over.
I know that there is good in this.

I know that You are holding me up saying 
“Girl you can do this. With Me and only with Me can you do it well.”

So I trust.
I trust You.
Blessed are those who trust in the LORD
and have made the LORD their hope and confidence.
Jeremiah 17:7
