What If?

Drowning in the sea of

“What if?”.

It fills our minds and

our hearts

and it consumes us.

Controls us.

Chains us

and

pulls us down

and

drowns

us.

In fear.

In worry.

And

an

overwhelming

sense

of

helplessness.

UNTIL.

Until we let it go.

Releasing the chains that bind us.

Letting them fall.

Looking

to the One

Who frees us.

The One

who saves us from drowning:

reaching down

to pull us up,

He breathes HOPE

back into our lungs,

filling

us

with

PEACE.

    Thank you, Vickie! This morning, the Lord gave me this thought…Holding up our hands in complete surrender – “letting go and letting God” – is the first step toward God’s victory. Your words were a confirmation to me.

      I am thankful that God is always at work around us, often in ways we don’t see, but what a gift His Word is for us–reminding us of His Truth!

    Thanks for this reminder. And I love this verse, it is one of my favorites.
    One time I read this somewhere: “What if doesn’t exist, don’t go there!” I like to think of it when the “what if” tries to take over😁
