If I’ve learned anything lately it’s to lean in. Robbie and I hit the ground running after Christmas. Between selling our home, buying a home, pursuing our second adoption, and ministry it’s been a full year thus far. It’s been a great one but a full one.
What I am learning more and more with each passing day is how much I need Jesus. When we are faced with chaos, full weeks, newness, change, and transition I can easily try to pile it all on my shoulders and attempt to handle all of these things on my own. Yet, I find that I can’t carry this much weight so I fall or I crash.
I need Jesus.
I am learning to lean into this current season. God keeps me afloat. He gives me hope, peace, grace, and so much love. Leaning in him is trusting him no matter the outcome.
I heard on a podcast the other day that, “God’s love language is trust.” Trust is active obedience and faithfulness to what God has called you to do. I want to trust God with my whole heart, with all of my worries, my pain, my children, our future children, ministry, my husband, and our life together. I want to continually submit to what God has called our family to do in the tedious of things and with the big stuff. I want to trust Him even if we don’t see beautiful results. This is leaning in.
As I lean into Him I am reminded that he is taking care of me.
“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and now grow weary; they will walk and not grow faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Maybe you, like I need to be reminded that he is taking care of you. You too can lean into Him and breath a sigh of relief. You don’t have to do whatever you are doing on your own. You don’t have to carry all of the weight that life throws at you. You have a helper. His hands are reaching out to you. His arms are wide open. Will you accept his invitation?
I hope this Easter you are reminded how much God loves you, what he has done for you, and the freedom that is available to you. I am so thankful for this freedom. This freedom causes us to lean in and trust Him. There’s nothing else like it. Nothing can compare.
