Open Hands

This morning I could feel the tension as I approached my Bible and journal.

It gripped my heart as I felt the Lord whispering, “relax”.

As I wrote, read, and reflected, I realized that I have had a death grip on life…once again.

This is a constant struggle for me!

I have been living with a scarcity mindset, which is easy to fall into when the budget is beyond tight, life is a constant time crunch, and of course I’m 5 months pregnant.

This mindset has been girded with fear of the unknown.

As God is prompting Mason and I to step out in faith, I am confident we are headed in the right direction.

Yet, I have been grasping at the straws of life that I *think* I can control or keep hold of.

However, this morning as the Holy Spirit whispered to me, I listened.

I relaxed.

I pictured myself with open hands, ready to receive whatever vision God has for me in the next month, weeks, and year.

I desire to live a full and blessed life that only God could design, but that requires me holding loosely to what life looks like right now!
