Every morning, I will choose to place my hope in the One who died for me.
I will choose to wake up, no longer looking at my surroundings and circumstances; but will live in child-like freedom knowing joy is right beside me.
He is right here. By my side through it all.
In my deepest struggle, deepest fear, constant over-thinking - I will fight to always choose Him. I will choose the tossing and turning for the sake of drawing closer to Him.
I will lay my weaknesses at His feet and say, “do what You will.” For in the struggle, insecurity, insults, and weaknesses - I will find joy because He is shining brighter in it all. His power is being declared. It is not about my face, who sees or knows me. For the One who knows it all sees me and knows me - and fully loves me. What else do I need? It’s just that simple. And it’s that simple for you too. You’re reading this for a reason.
