I find it relatively easy to surrender my will for my life to Our Father. Relative to that of surrendering my family’s life to Him.
When it comes to my prayers for them, I want to say, and often do, “Please this…and, please that…..” Placing them in his arms and walking away, so to speak, is really tough for me. I don’t want to let go. I want to keep looking over my shoulder to make sure they’re still okay.
Do I trust you, Lord? Not just for my life but for the lives of those I care about so deeply?
My true desire is to release them to you and say, with a sound heart, “Jesus, I trust in you – in all things and all life and for all people, even my closest family.” Because no one cares for them or loves them – not even me – more than you.
