When God tells us to do something with ALL our heart, do we really and truly comprehend the concept of ALL? I will go on record here as saying…No, I do not grasp that concept fully.
What does it mean to surrender ALL to Him? My being (my dedication) is divided among so many “loves”. How do we give God our ALL?
This topic came to mind this afternoon when I texted my verse-of-the-day to my kids. It’s one of my most favorite in the Bible.
5 Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In ALL your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
Maybe it’s just me but I struggle with letting go of stuff. I want to fix it. I want to control it. I want to have it…for whatever reason. This is definitely something I need to figure out. I’m sure I’d make a better Mom, Christian, friend, neighbor, coworker, sister, even writer, if I just let go of things to make room for ALL.
I continually acknowledge that I am a work in progress. And I am. The Potter is not done with me yet. Not even close.
Maybe we should think more about that tiny word ALL and the bigness it encompasses. It truly is a huge word in God’s eyes.
Have a great start to your weekend. Just don’t forget to include God in your plans. ♥️
