Do you ever feel like it is all falling apart? That you can’t catch up? That you are holding your life together like a net holds water? Are you being crushed under the heavy expectations of family, work, chess club, halo night, bunco, book reading, grass cutting, hair cutting, bible study groups, Sunday school, coaching, cleaning out the gutters, cleaning out between your teeth, 24, the office, lost, inauguration day, quiet times, school, daycare, date nights, baby sitters, cooking, eating, losing weight, exercising, vitamins, barley green, sleep, waking up, getting here and there, working cars, gas, tires, brakes, oil, birthdays, anniversaries, mothers day, fathers day, secretaries day, ground hog day, Christmas, bills, debt, tithe, doctor, dentist, taxes,……etc.
Let it go. Entrust it.
Well, Hebrews 1:3 and Colossians 1:17 teaches us that Jesus upholds all things and in Him all things hold together. I want to trust Jesus to hold my life together. I want to be willing to let things go that I know He does not want in His hands. I want to be submissive to let go of the things that are permissible but not for me. I desire a life of busy peace. I want to be about many things that effects many people but I want to posses the peace of God. This peace will come as I see Jesus reigning in all areas of my life. I want to find my life hidden deep in Christ at the end of each day. I know that I am hidden in Christ, but am I trying to be found by other things less worthy? Just knowing that He holds my life together causes a sigh of relief. Lord, help me to remember this truth before I try to grab my life by the reigns with my weak hands.
