Are You Afraid of Letting Go?

Today the Lord led me to go through Day 3 “Follow His Lead” in the Restoration Fellowship’s Weekly Message and wanted to say how I’m very thankful to my Lovely Husband. He is everything I need, everything I want and everything I love! He takes care of me every day.

Yesterday when I had to leave my car once more at the mechanic the first feeling I felt was loneliness. But I shook my head, wiped my tears and told Him “My Love, I trust You and know You control my life. If You want me to travel tomorrow, You will fix my car, but if You do not want me to travel, Your will be done. Nothing can separate me from You.” Ladies, in 30 minutes from now I will take my car and travel because He took care of everything!!!

“These are the words of the Holy One, the True One, He who has the key [to the house] of David, He who opens and no one will [be able to] shut, and He who shuts and no one opens:

What I’d like to say to other women who have hesitated or you’ve been afraid of letting go of your church in order to join RF. Trust Him! He is everything You need to be happy and He takes care of everything You need! So delight yourself in His words, be in love with Him!!!

Rather than attending “church”, I get to spend every Sunday with Him! In the morning I read my Encourager and The Holy Bible while I drink a cup of coffee with Him. While I make lunch I worship Him in song and at night I spend more lovely time with Him. He is everything I need!!

HERE is a 2nd PRAISE REPORT from an RF Member who is currently going through Finding the Abundant Life and submitted a praise about Chapter 14 “You’re All that Matters.”

“One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD and to meditate in His temple.” Psalm 27:4

I never want to live away from Him anymore.

“Delight yourself in the LORD; and He will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalms 37:4).

“‘No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn, this is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD” (Isaiah 54:17).

I know that one day He will turn everything to good, and I know that He protects me, and guides me, and if I have Him, I have everything. Reading this last chapter, the Lord taught me that my heart should be focused on Him alone. I learned that I should not look at the way others are prospering, or the things that can still happen with me, I know” that in all things God works for the good of those who love him”, I also learned by reading this chapter,  that I should not envy what other women have, because I really don´t know what is happening in their lives. I should empty myself and surrender my life to His will and His love. Since I´ve been struggling with my feelings and emotions, I know I need to empty myself and surrender to Him, so that He can fulfill His will and promises for my life. I should let go of everything, of my FH´s family, of what I hold close, give everything to Him—because He is the only one that matters.

I want to use the time that I have with Him, to empty myself of all the things that I want and desire, and let God´s will fulfill my life. I want also to encourage each of you to seek the Lord, and to trust on Him, I want to encourage each of you to have a relationship with Him.

Dear brides, I never knew I would feel this way after reading this last chapter, the only thing that I want to do is surrender to Him, and love Him, today I know that the most important journey of my life is to find and live to Him, I don´t want to “faint but I want to finish the race.”

Dear brides, I know that maybe you still don’t feel this love for Him, but please never give up, give your heart to Him, I know it is hard to let go of things that we believe it is important, but we need to understand that nothing can be compared to Him, He is the only one that can make us happy, that can give us an abundant life.

Dear bride, I think that this book should be read and read more than one time so that you can fully understand what is to have a relationship with our Beloved Husband. We women suffer so much, and the reason is because we don´t have Him as the Lord of our hearts and lives. So, brides, I encourage you to let Him work in your heart, mind, and life—and let Him lead you to the life that He has planned for us, even before the creation of the world.
