Someone recently sent me a message after reading one of my blog posts, and she commented how much she appreciates my continual yielding to God’s leading.
Well, let me just say that I fight to focus on God. At times it feels peaceful and secure and other times it’s a struggle. I’m content in my fight to focus on God, because he has proven his character to me. I appreciated the person’s comment, but it made me pause. Because do I yield well to God’s leading? Do I focus on him?
Sometimes. Perhaps most of the time. Definitely not always.
I settled into thinking about it even more, and I determined it’s not so much a focus on him that I want and strive for; it’s a yielding to. It requires a constant choice, and that choice certainly doesn’t come easy to me at times.
I want you to know that.
You are not alone in your struggles.
