I have such high hopes and dreams, expectations and visions of how I want our life to go.
I have huge aspirations of accomplishing my goals and chasing my dreams.
But right now, the Lord is teaching me #SURRENDER. (Luke 9:23).
Dying to myself daily and realizing the #strongholds I have in my life.
And the conviction of is so deep yet so tender. @labujamra has got me going to my prayer nook and journaling about the words of the Lord and the idols I have in my own life. Strongholds that are not bad things, but that I have allowed to overshadow much of my passions in life.
As much as I love pursuing my dreams, I've come to realize that I can tend to chase those dreams more than I chase Jesus. That I'm so focused on "following where God leads me" in zeal for accomplishing earthly goals, that I fail to just follow JESUS, SEEK JESUS first and desire Him above everything else. Just trusting that His plans will come to fruition IN my chasing after Him.
I love that revelation, that wake-up call, the reality of that truth.
Today is a new day. A day to break strongholds. And a day to meet with Jesus I all that I do.
