Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start! A new day to walk totally, completely surrendered, healed, whole, and FREE.
So often we hold tight to the world and all it offers while crying out to God for more of Him. He is desiring to give you ALL that He died to give you. It’s on the other side of giving up the desires that are no longer needed now that you are in Christ. As you grapple, He is patient. Healing comes flooding in when we get serious enough to get off the fence and into the kingdom.
Here’s a glimpse into the struggle and the sweet sweet healing available when we finally let go.
Jesus, You can have all of me,
Oh but not that part, why that one?
Darling, that one is hurting you,
It has to go
Jesus, You can have every part of me,
Oh but please not that one
Darling, that thing has a hold of you,
It must leave
Jesus, here I am, all for You
Oh, I beg of You Lord let that monster be
Darling, if you only knew the healing available on the other side of letting go
Jesus, here I am again to give all I have. Oh, but all surely doesn’t include that one shadow
Freedom awaits you, sweet and pure.
Jesus, You are my all in all, my everything
Oh but surely I still need that old comfort
I’ve broken every chain and defeated every stronghold.
Jesus, You have saved me and redeemed me.
Oh but surely you can’t fill that deep gash, it’s far too wide
You are healed and whole and that thing mustn’t stay.
Jesus, I desire to walk deeper and run farther with You than ever before.
Oh but can I please keep this dark alley for those really hard nights
As much as I love you darling, it must flee.
It serves no purpose here in the light.
Jesus, seriously I mean it. Your Spirit is surely all I want.
Oh, but that one that one dark comfort, I’ve tried to let it go.
Darling, I’m patient. I’m merciful, but I will not give in.
The old numbing tactics are no longer needed when my Presence fills the room.
Jesus, I’m ready. I completely surrendered to Your will. Oh I don’t want this dark space any longer. Please take it, heal it, fill it.
I can fill the space. I can apply salve to the wound. The thing must go. It no longer serves you.
Jesus, I can feel Your power rising up inside. I desire You more than anything else on earth. Oh here I am ready for total healing, I surrender even the hardest of parts over to You.
Oh Darling, how I’ve waited for you to exercise your free will and receive ALL that I have to lavish upon you.
Your God given destiny is here and now.
You darling are healed, you must make the choice to simply get up from your mat and walk.
Blessings and sweet sweet Freedom awaits you!
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
John 14:26 NKJV
And if you came across this post and you haven’t yet accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, may I encourage you that by choosing Him you receive eternal life in heaven, BUT ALSO abundant life NOW. Following Him is the most precious adventure you have ever taken!! All you have to do to get started is to pray and receive Him as Lord. The Bible says to confess Jesus Christ as Lord and believe with your heart the precious gospel message that Jesus taught. Repent of your sins which means simply to ask Jesus to forgive you and then choose to walk away from them and go in the New Direction that God is calling you to. Confess or speak that you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for you, that He was resurrected from the dead, and ascended to heaven. And that you recieve Him as your Lord and Savior. That you are sorry for your sins and you recieve His FULL and complete forgiveness for every wrong you’ve ever committed. And that you are choosing to follow Him now and leave the ways of the world behind for the things of Jesus!!! And if you mean that with your heart, you are saved and set free to live a new life free of sin! The Bible says you are now a brand new creation! Old things have passed away and new things have come!!! The Bible also says that all of heaven rejoices whenever a person is saved!!!! Just imagine the party being held in heaven on your behalf right now!!!

Your opening graphic…..oh how I hold tight to things that I know are not good for me, things that will do me harm. The truth is, many of us hold on to things because they are familiar instead of what is new & better. Change us hard even when we know it’s good for us
Yes, you are so right!
So attention grabbing for me. This needs to be one I print off and read daily until I finally and permanently release control.🙏
God is so gentle and patient with us as He leads us to fullness and wholeness in Him.
