Sometimes it seems to be so clear… the idea that I am powerless over some situations… my past choices, other people, what others say or choose for themselves or what they think of me. My heart hurts when I know how a pursuit for the peace of God can change the ones I love and they refuse. It is only by giving my heart, my past, my choices, and the ones I love over to Him that I can be at peace. My heart is so full. God loves me and can fulfill every longing I have. I choose today to surrender to Him, the ones who I cannot force to accept Him and His gift of peace.
Father, I leave them all in your hands. I remain in You. I want nothing more than your peace. Amen.
