I am not...

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 12:34 PM
I am not independent. I am dependent on God for everything I have and everything that I am. Oh, what a relief! No longer is there the pressure to “do it on my own”. My Father God, who is omniscient, is in charge of my life. He knows what is best for me. I don’t have to guess or try to figure it out. All I have to do is believe, trust, and rely on Him and my path will be made straight (Romans 11:33.)
I don’t have to take care of myself. Now, let’s not get crazy and discontinue personal hygiene habits, good eating, and exercise. God calls us to be responsible for maintaining our health. However, I am able to cast all my cares on Him. I am never alone in my needs. He provides all that I need according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19.)
Although God may give me a man to walk through life with, I don’t need a man in my life to be complete. I am complete in Christ (Colossians 2:9-10.) I am God’s daughter, He loves me knowing every fault and sin I’ve ever had or will ever have in my life. His Holy Spirit dwells in me and produces fruit in me. My cup runneth over!

I completely agree that we need to be dependent on God. However, I find that one of the hardest things to continually and completely give up - CONTROL. I do want it, but I really don't. I fear the unknown even though I know that God is in control of it all. I completely trust that what God has for me is greater than I can imagine in every way and that I want a peek at the map that gets me there. God is so good to put up with me in his infinite patience. Maybe I should show more patience with my children, since my God gives me an excellent example.
