Laying it Down

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know.

Proverbs 3:5 GNT.

I have found joy
Sweet sweet joy!

I remember when
I still struggled
With life
Trying to figure things out
All by myself

Trying to live life
By my rules
Serving myself
Uh, subtle idolatry.

Trying to fulfil
My selfish desires
Consumed with “I”

Then satisfaction fled
Nothing worked out
Confusion set in

Then he told me…
Lay it all down
Give it away

It was hard!

It was difficult
To let go
It was difficult
To stop being in control

But it paid off

It was difficult to let go. It was difficult to stop being in control, but paid off.

Clarity came!
Joy was restored!

Oh, how soothing it is
When we trust God

Joy! Pure joy
Awaits us!


How often is it when we try to figure out life by ourselves? How easy has it been doing that? He calls you to lay it all down, give it up for God. He knows best.
