As a small child, I remember being on a diving board about to jump to my parents. I knew that they were there to catch me and that jumping meant fun, but it was so hard to just let go.
Philippians 4: 6-7
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
As a grownup, it’s still a struggle. I know that full surrender to God through prayer and supplication means God’s peace, but it is still a daily challenge to just trust and jump – knowing that I am in over my head and knowing that God will catch me. I want to cling to the last semblance that I am in charge, and quake with fear. It is SO hard to just let go. Full faith means full peace. I can hear my Father beckoning me to let go – He has me and the water is fine.
Dear God, help me to fully trust you and let go of any sense of control. Only when I am obedient to you and fully surrender do I find your perfect peace.
