Stop striving so hard to do everything on your own.
I watch you struggle, saddened;
I want you to ask me for help.
I can’t let you succeed at everything
or you will falsely believe you don’t need me.
Stop getting so frustrated, My Child.
Just whisper my name, Jesus
and I’ll fill you with peace and work through your hands.
Search for me in my Word
and I’ll give you wisdom.
Reach out to me when you are empty
and I’ll fill you up to overflowing.
Press in close to me
when everyone else has abandoned you.
I created you to need me. It is not a weakness to acknowledge your need.
You have freedom when you allow me to be your strength.
You have abundant life when you let me in.
