Letting Go and Letting God

Hi Friends,
Just wanted to let you know I won't be back now to post until Monday. Leaving early tomorrow morning for North Carolina to attend the "She Speaks" conference. Would so appreciate your prayers. As many of you know, I'm nervous about flying, but I won't be travelling alone - the God of the entire Universe will be sitting with me.

Wanted to share one verse today before I leave: Colossians 3:15, "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts..."

The thing that struck me about that verse as I read it now is the word 'let'. That word implies that the peace is already right there - available - but it's up to us to allow it to flow in our lives. It's up to us to permit it to have access to our hearts. That involves surrender. In order for the peace to move in gently, we must open the door and welcome it.

Where do you need His peace today? Let go, let God, and let His peace flood your heart.

Hey friend,

You're just in the air now and your sister has prayed you through the night and this morning we lifted you before the Throne of Grace together. Will be praying for you this morning as you take wings and fly, fully trusting God as you follow where He has led you.

Love you so much. Have a GREAT time!!!
