There is peace when we are able to accept what is. We are miserable when we feel that we have to control everything. We can’t create in the realm of miracles when we operate in our own understanding. When we partner with the heavens the way is made easier. We will be limited when we push to do it ourselves. We become more of who we are meant to be when we let go and surrender.
Psalm 37:7 “Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for him.”
We build walls to “keep us safe”, they substitute for trust. Self-protected measures intended to keep evil out, often wall it in. What initially kept you safe can eventually destroy you. We need boundaries – walls divide while boundaries honor. Walls aren’t erected overnight; they are built over time and take time and process for them to come down.
“The reason why many are still troubled, still seeking, still making little forward progress is because they haven’t yet come to the end of themselves. We’re still trying to give orders, and interfering with God’s work within us.”
“Rise by kneeling
Conquer by surrendering
Gain by giving up”
