Slow and See!

There are things in your soul that God wants to remove far from you. Things like shame, rejection, self-contempt, and fear. There are places in your soul that God wants to heal, truly heal, so you’ll know a kind of freedom you’ve not known before. Some burdens weigh heavy that aren’t yours to carry. Jesus wants to hold those for you. Some of the dreams in your heart were actually put there by God Himself. Don’t be so quick to dismiss them. Give God time and space to show you what He wants to do in and through you. May you slow your pace and turn your face towards the One who holds the universe in His hand and who holds you, very close to His heart. Follow His lead. You can trust Him. May His deep, restorative work surprise and bless you beyond your wildest dreams. You are priceless to Him. Believe it. 

Psalm 23:1-3 BSB ~ The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness for the sake of His name.
