He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you. Never, ever, during your trials and testing’s. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.” Footprints in the Sand
It took losing my job and three years of unemployment to fully understood what it meant to allow Him to carry me. I say ‘allow’ because it’s not that He wouldn’t have or hadn’t done so before, I just didn’t think I needed to be carried. I was the strong one, the held together one, the one expected to do and be…
I was so used to handling things my way, so caught up in being a perfectionist, so caught up in being people’s go-to person to the point I wore myself out and y’all, it took everything in me to say to God that I could not and did not want to be that person anymore (not the way I was going about it). I was starting to see signs of what could’ve led to a breakdown, and knew I had to let go. I simply wanted a different job, but he knew what was best. Even though I’d rejected his help before, even though I insulted his sovereignty by thinking I knew what was best for me, like the Loving Father he is, for three years (and still now) He showed me what it meant to be carried, what it meant to really cast my cares on Him, what it meant to believe and have faith. For that I’m THANKFUL.
Consider how God has been wanting to carry you. Be thankful by saying ‘Yes’ to His will and His way!!!
