I’ve been studying self-control this morning, and let me tell you, it’s not been your typical feel good study. But, I came across this quote this morning, and it got me thinking.
“Any out-of-control area in our lives, no matter how big or how small, is an open invitation to the enemy.” – Beth Moore
An invitation to wreak havoc in our lives and steal our peace.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like there is a lot in life that seems out-of-control right now. Though I cannot change what is happening around me, I can change how I respond to it. Am I leaning into fear or am I trusting that God’s got this? Am I hiding behind closed doors or am I using this gift of time to encourage others? Am I leaning into the hard parts of this journey or am I leaning into Jesus?
Today, I encourage you to lean into Jesus. He can be trusted with whatever we face. Of that, I am certain.
