I love Friday mornings. They are my follow-up /catch up day to everything I didn’t finish on my list during the week. My quiet time was a struggle this week. I’ve been reading Wild and Free. Really thinking about what holds me back from letting go or not beating myself up over the little things. Not seeing myself as God sees me. What holds us back from free living? I’ve read this section over and over in Wild and Free. I am sure that God’s plan is to be wild and free in Him yet I over think and over analyze everything. What I do know is absolutely reaffirmed in this book “ Wherever you are, God is calling you to freedom. But before we can truly walk in His freedom, we need to understand what holds us back.”
Sometimes that’s the biggest struggle! I prayed for God to release me from my struggles. Then prayed for God to be with me through my struggle. Then for God to show me what I need to learn through my struggles.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
Each day I keep going back to the daily prayer mentioned on Northpoint a few weeks ago:
Lord I need you
Please give me your strength
In Jesus name I pray Amen.
How do you move forward? What are your prayers? How can I pray for you? I’d love to hear from you. How are your goals in the new year going?
