You won't relent until you have it all, my heart is yours.

Just a bit of Monday thoughts before class.
I'm reading a book for a Bible Study I'm doing called When God Writes Your Love Story. It's actually really good, and if you haven't read it, you should. It's about more than just allowing God to write your love story...but rather, starting with that and letting him write your life story. I came across this little quote and thought I would share to encourage you all this Monday morning!

I am the center of the universe. I know every desire of your heart. I want to script a beautiful tale to you, but first you must give me the pen. You must let me become the center of your existence. You must let me have total control of your love life, and every other area of your life as well.
-Leslie Ludy in When God Writes Your Love Story

Psalm 18:30 says that "As for God, his way is perfect." Why should we worry about handing our lives over to someone who knows everything and who's way is perfect? Why is this so hard? Let's give Him the pen. It's time to stop chasing after my dreams, and start chasing after His will. He's preparing something beautiful for our lives, if we just stop and give it over to him.

  1. I needed this today. It's so hard to hand over the pen when you're hanging onto it with every angry feeling inside you. I need to let it go. Thanks for this encouragement today, Lauren.
