Whatever you are holding on to, whatever burdens you, pour it out to the Father. He cares for you. He is your place of safety and refuge. It’s time to give it all up to Him-the worries and the wonders. He wants it all today, sister.
Pour it out today, it’s time to stop holding it all in. Trust Him with the impossible. Trust Him with the improbable. Trust Him with the deep secrets and the buried pain. Trust Him with the process.
He is your shelter and shield. He is your strength and your safe haven.
Sisters, let’s be intentional about giving all of ourselves-the beautiful and the messy parts-to the Lord. This can be a challenging task. Women are taught to be presentable at all times. Women are taught that no one will want them if they are too much: too vulnerable, too emotional, too needy. Now here comes the One who says He loves all of us-our endless tears, the snort that comes with a hearty laugh, and the frustrations that so easily beset us. That can be hard to believe but it is absolutely the truth:
The Lord loves all of you-the parts you were told were unlovable, the Lord can handle it. The “hot mess” that you frequently call yourself is considered the apple of His eye. So if the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings is so in love with you, why do you hold back parts of yourself from Him? Declare today that it shall be no more!
Let us pray with you: Lord, may the beautiful woman of God whom encounters this post declare today that she will surrender all of herself to you. You are the Creator of her very life. You are the author and finisher of her faith. May she reject the lies of the enemy and humbly bow before you, her King, who loves every part of her messy, beautiful, simple, and complex life. In Christ name, Amen.
Some products and associations offer a lifetime guarantee of support and assistance. However, those documents often come with with fine print and exceptions. Companies that promise lifetime guarantees fall every day. The assurances that the world offers are temporary, no matter what the verbiage of a contract may say.
This is one of the many reasons why we have to lean on Christ alone. Being a child of God, also offers a lifetime guarantee:
Friends, we know you’ve encountered this Word many times before, but read it slowly, savor that truth! Don’t just gloss over this lifetime guarantee from the Father. It’s so easy to take it for granted. It’s so easy to fall for the schemes of the enemy.
Sisters, there is no fine print in the Word of God! He will never fail! We will fall, we will stumble, and we will mess up-several times! There is no timeline on the Father’s love. His mercies are new each and every morning. His grace is for a lifetime. His love is guaranteed to His children!
Christ paid for this warranty with His life, this guarantee of His protection and provision, His love and care, and His grace and His promises extends for a lifetime-for all of eternity.
