Where is all your striving getting you?
You work and you toil and you look for progress, yet everything remains the same.
Have you not yet learned that I don’t expect you to work things out for yourself?
What I desire is for you to seek my help.
Seek me. Love me. Trust me.
Lay your burdens down at my feet and put your hope in me.
Surrender to me the work of your hands and the plans of your heart.
And just rest.
Rest in me alone.
I will be your peace.
I will be your source.
Surrender your planning and rest.
You see, my child,
Your life is not a testimony of what you do for me.
Your life is a testimony of what I do through you.
“Not by might nor by power,but by my Spirit.”
