Ruthless Trust

She sits a child in awe of her Father. Heart alive, breath full, soul thankful. God is truly too good to her.

Her heart swells, desiring to know where to continue – Father’s opinion and guiding to show her the way. What a beautiful life He’s given her – with scars that adorn beyond the sparkle of the rarest jewel. What wonderful relationships He’s surrounded her with – people to stand beside her, hands to hold her up, feet to walk with her.

A still, unrelenting peace pierces her heart and moves her to her knees. God is too good to her. Desiring His glory, she seeks His wisdom and counsel, and slowly releases her grips and lays her heart and treasure at His feet. Ruthless trust. This is what she needs to grow. Ephesians 1:18-20 – this is what she needs to pray and believe. Child-like wonder – this is how she needs to worship Him.

Will she hold onto her own will or let God take it and do what He wills with it? To let go is to rip her very being apart, but God is faithful, and God will always get His glory.

I pray that the eyes of my heart may be enlightened, so that I will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. (Eph 1:18-20)

This power that raised Christ from the dead is alive and working. In her. Everyday. How humbling.

How freeing.
