Release

#fmf

We are told to in  1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

That means to release them to Him.  When we wake each morning, eyes open and our minds go immediately to the thoughts that haunt us.  Those that keep us awake at night, those that cause us to react to others instead of love and those that tie us down to sin.  When we wake each morning, not releasing those thoughts to Him, we are not allowing the blood that flowed from Jesus to cover us.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

Trusting in the Lord completely means releasing it ALL to Him.  Holding nothing back, letting go of it, freeing ourselves from the weight.   I have released, taken back, released again, found new ones and released them.  No greater freedom than knowing that He is carrying it for you.  That I can lean on him and he will guide me.

Isaiah 43:18-19

“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

 God transformed me, he allowed me to release my sin, my pain, my shame, my anger, my control to Him.  I am free of them but they are not forgotten.  He wants me to use those former things, to help others.  Sharing allows others to see they are not alone.  Helps them find their strength through Jesus so they can be free.
“I am struck by how sharing our weakness and difficulties is more nourishing to others than sharing our qualities and successes.”
― Jean Vanier, Community And Growth

John 8:32

And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

I am free indeed.  Thank you Jesus! Amen!

  1. Thanks for the Scripture. I love the verses in Isaiah 43. I think you are right on when you say that being vulnerable and sharing our weaknesses helps others more than sharing our successes. We need each other!
