In a devotion I read a few days ago, it was asked, what do I  need to get rid of in my life. 

Well, I’ve been sitting with that for several days now and it came to me.  

Pride 

I’m too proud.  I want to be able to have control of the situation.   I want to know how things are going to go. I don’t want people to think I’m weak or lazy.  I don’t want to be a burden on others & I want to do things myself. 

But when I  do that, I’m not trusting God & I’m isolating myself from others. 

I admit that there are some things that need to happen, that I can’t make happen.  Only God can open the doors & lead me down His path.  

Trusting Him is the only way to go.

I will do what He asks me to do, but i need to then let Him do what only He can do.  Then continuosly give Him praise & thanks along the way. 

Even when some things don’t go the way I expect them to.  

I know His plans are best.  I need to get out of His way & let Him do what He does best.  

I have seen Him open doors I had no idea how to open & I’ll see Him do it again.  Thank you, Lord!

Here are the lyrics to a song I’m reminded of. It’s such a powerful song!

“Do It Again”  by Elevation Worship

Walking around these walls
I thought by now they’d fall
But You have never failed me yet
Waiting for change to come
Knowing the battle’s won
For You have never failed me yet

Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You’ve never failed me yet

I know the night won’t last
Your Word will come to pass
My heart will sing Your praise again
Jesus You’re still enough
Keep me within Your love
My heart will sing Your praise again

Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You never failed

Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You never failed me yet

I’ve seen You move, You move the mountains
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again
You made a way, where there was no way
And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

[x3]
I’ll see You do it again

Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You never failed

Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You never failed me yet

And You never failed me yet
I never will forget
You never failed me yet
I never will forget
