lay it all down
Take a minute if you need to.
List it all out. All your accolades, all your failures.
Maybe you’re not Paul. Maybe you don’t have the opportunity to boast in all the amazing things you’ve done. I sure don’t. But we all have our little things that we want to be known for, patted on the back for, acknowledged of us. Even if it’s just the fact that we managed to get the dishes done.
Whatever it is – successes or failures, take a minute to feel the weight of them.
Then let’s lay them at the feet of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The sufferings, the trials, the successes, the failures, the amazings, the blessings, the huge wins. Lay ‘em all down. Because they pale in comparison to Him. To His Love.
And this is great news, sister.
Don’t be discouraged for a minute that you’re not worthy or that all your work won’t be noticed or that no one will ever see you. He has seen you before the beginning of time. He has adopted you before the wins and the fails, before the good and the bad. He has called you daughter.
Help us Father, to look past today and the present to see how amazing our identity is just being your daughter. That we may know Him, the power of His resurrection, that we may share in his sufferings and in His glorious resurrection to spend eternity worshipping Him.
That’s all we want.
