40 Days of Surrender - Day 18
Thursday, October 27, 2011 - Jumbled emotions
It's a train...the illustration, it's a train -- FAITH is the Engine, FACT is the Car, FEELING is the Caboose.
Today...no structured order on the train track...today - Train Wreck.
I was FEELING...and the feelings were fighting for some position other than caboose - stress, anxiety, heaviness, emotions I am not even able to put labels on. And FAITH was not absent - I could articulate: "LORD, I know this isn't significant, it will all work out...I don't like the weight...Father, I want to hear what you have to say to me, but I am too tired and stressed it seems to even quiet my heart to listen."
And then it came, the still small voice...Surrender...surrender that which is weighing you down.
And I did.
And that is obedience. And that builds FAITH. And that puts the FAITH Engine in its rightful position...God, the Engineer of FAITH, the Engineer of the TRAIN of life.
May I continue to Learn to let FAITH in God be the Driver in "my" life.
