This week I definitely felt the desire to let go and understand that even if I want to have control of my children and my husband and my home my finances, this is nothing I *can* do since everything is in the hands of God not me!
I have been fighting for 3 years for the stability of my home, with the rebelliousness of my children and the adultery of my husband. However from this lesson I realize I must leave it all to Him, all the worry, all the trying, just leave it. I feel that it is like forgetting that they exist in the aspect of not looking at any of them since none of the changes can happy by me and that by hanging on and trying to change them, God is ignored, the part He must play in each life.
Father thank you for this opportunity to surrender the burden of my husband and my sons to You. I know that You created them for a purpose and I do not want to continue hindering Your plans for them. I ask you dear HH to help me to trust You more and more and more. I believe that is what I need is You only and in order to have great faith I have to recognize that I’ve not let go for so long because I am very afraid of what will happen in future. Dear Brides …
Dear Brides, this chapter of Finding the Abundant Life “Surrender” God used to show me my fears about the future. I finally could see that really I must trust Him to deliver me to let go of my worrying and to help me stop worrying about the results of each situation in my family that I try to control. I have learned to let him do things because he knows how to do everything. I learned that I have to trust in God that I have to let it be Him He is the one who takes care of all the situations of my day to day life with my finances, my children, my husband and is working in all the areas so I can simply really let go. Release it all. For me is to trust fully that there somebody higher than me, someone much bigger and that from His high place where He sees everything and the few things I can see, things I know is not always what is going on, so why not Trust God? It’s foolish not to.
Now I have been given full of confidence, I am able to understand that God is who will put everything in order in my life and this begins when I put my confidence in Him that everything will go well. Now that I am full of confidence, I am experiencing less fear and am able to love my family. This is me Finding my Abundant Life!
“I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. He takes away every branch that does not bear fruit in me. He prunes every branch that bears fruit so that it will bear more fruit. You are clean already because of the word that I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me—and I in him—bears much fruit, because apart from me you can accomplish nothing. “(John 15: 1-5).
Knowing that I can bear fruit while I am resting with my beloved Lord is very gratifying!

Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
Be sure to submit a Praise Report today and enter through that narrow gate few ever find!
