I’m confident something in your life is challenging you right now. The best news is that Christ promises peace to those who turn to Him.
I place my will under Your sovereign control, desiring that this cup shall pass but welcoming Your call and walking obediently according to Your will.
God waits for us to let go, to accept what’s happening, to stop and listen for His direction, and to follow His lead by faith.
