Dependence means trust, reliance..
Wholeheartedly depending in or on something. That could be anything. A job, marriage, a friend, money, a dream or even a goal…
Think about that for a minute.
What? Or who, are you depending on?
If I’m not careful, I will begin to depend on my own understanding… and that immediately takes my eyes off of my trust in God…
Not a pretty picture! Hahaha
(“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”)
When I start to worry, or problem solve I can go down tons of rabbit trails, (is that even the right saying? Hahaha) which in turn puts the pressure back on me to fix or solve something I clearly need help with…
I love this scripture. It bleeds strength into my weakness, and It reminds me; how very grateful I am, to be a child of the God Most High…
“When you bow down before the Lord and admit your dependence on Him He will lift you up and give you honor..”
Dear Heavenly Father, Good morning. I am so very thankful that I can come before You this new day and let my guard down. That I don’t have to pretend to be something I am not… I just love that.. thank You!
Coming into Your courts this morning, I admit my dependence on You, I bow down before You.
My maker. The lover of my soul…
I place at your feet my worries and stress for what I wish would be, and thank You that I don’t have to carry my burdens around my heart…
That I can come before You and give you my day. My heart. My thoughts. And know that I can depend on You for guidance, hope and goodness is just the best… ever!
Thank You that as I give you my heart, and I depend on You… You are growing within me strength, power and the ability to live beyond myself, and that is a good thing for sure!
Thank You that You lift me up…
I depend on You..
In Jesus Holy Name,
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Live in Love,
