I can’t break myself; only God can do that. I can yield myself to Him and surrender everything by abandoning all of my desires, but He is the only one that can complete the work.
I have done many things that I thought were sacrificial in an attempt to find this place of rest, but none of them were able to produce the result for which I was pursuing. It wasn’t until I was willing to embrace everything that happens in my life with a heart of thanksgiving and gratefulness that I was able to find that place of peace and joy that I was seeking.
I don’t know what will happen in the future, whether it is in the next few hours or years away, but I know that the Lord has brought me to a place for which I had sought for a long time. My heart is overflowing with gratefulness for His great love.
