“I am your source. My Spirit lives in you. Just as the rain comes down and causes the cracks in the dry land to come together and be nourished and made stronger so My Spirit reigns down upon you to fill all the cracks in your imperfect life to nourish and strengthen you. When you long for me, when you need me more than you need anything else, you will understand and experience the impact of this truth.
It is not necessary for you to live your life constantly striving to control everything around you. I desire more from you than that. I long for you to trust me so much that what you do comes as natural as breathing. Your good works are not always your best works because they are done in your own strength. When your life is yielded to me, we are partnered together and what comes out of you becomes something beautiful that was created because you have trusted and relied upon my provision to achieve it.
You do not have to work harder to achieve greater purposes, you only need to allow me to be part of them. When you are yielded to me, as you trust in me, the things you do will have significantly more impact. They will give me glory, you will experience a satisfaction you did not anticipate, and others will be blessed.
It is time for you to rely upon me in all things, to let go of your selfish desires to control everything, and to work with me to accomplish my greater purposes for you. Choose me today and every day; choose me to be your partner in all you do, and you will see my greatest blessings unfold in your life.”
