Day number 3. I am laying on the couch, fatigued, empty. My body beat down from the inside out.
The night before I tried eating a “normal” meal and got wiped out. Back to the very first day.
Furious. I have two little girls to care for I can’t be sitting on the couch. Angry. A breastfeeding momma doesn’t have the time and energy to be sick. Irritated. My husband has work to do he can’t be looking after us 3. Frustrated. Biting into another piece of plain ‘ole boring toast.
Day 3 turns into 4 and now I am broken. Crying out for deliverance.
But who am I? Who am I to say what I have time for? Who am I that I think I can control such situations?
Day 4. Finally, I see. I need to accept. Accept my body is fragile. Accept that I am not in control. Accept that sometimes toast and bananas at every meal is what is best for me.
Day 4. I let go. I give my frustration, irritation and anger to God. I give Him permission to do a work, a great work in my heart.
Day 5. The heart is soft and moldable. Hands are open. Tummy is settled.
It is in the letting go of our pride and circumstances that God can do a mighty work, a healing. In a place of surrender, He is magnified.
What situation are you facing today? Why are you frustrated, irritated or angry? Do you need to let go? It is not easy however, it is necessary for the healing to begin. Reach out to Him. He will meet you there.
