"He has made everything beautiful in its time." Ecclesiastes 3:11
Opening up to the Lord, giving Him all our worries, hopes, concerns, and dreams is a form of beautiful surrender.
He calls for a relationship with Him, one that is not based on perfection, performance, or pushing down our feelings in order to appear put together. His relationship with us is based on us embracing the unconditional love flowing towards us, through us, and around us so we may learn the truth that despite any circumstance we are completely whole and loved.
To give Jesus our worries and concerns through prayer breaks down the misconception that we are to be unequivocally strong and consistently on our own. He calls us into surrender through prayer not for His benefit but for ours. He calls us to make our hearts and minds tender, open to change and progress, trusting that at our core we will be provided for.. Casting our cares to Him, with thanksgiving, draws our requests full circle into a place of gratitude and humility. Thanking God for what He’s done in our lives, the grand blessings and the small moments, pulls our hearts out of striving and grasping mode into alignment with His will for our lives.
I hope that you, sweet friend, cast your cares onto the Lord as you navigate your way through the beginning of this Christmas season and get to experience the inner peace and joy that can only come from Him.
