God, I trust you. I feel like my back is against a wall, and I have no idea what I should do in this phase of my life. In a time of uncertainty and with so much that is unknown, I am really struggling. You know that I am someone who loves a certain level of control over my life. I like to know what’s happening, when it’s happening, to who and why it’s happening. But now I feel as if I know nothing. And to be honest, that scares me. The possibilities of the unknown terrify me. As crazy as that sounds. How can you fear what you don’t know? I do.
But God, I trust you. I can feel you pulling me in a specific direction. Leading me down a new path. But I am afraid. How can I know that it’s really you? How can I ensure that this path will be what’s best for me? I know you said that you have plans for an expected end for me and that all things will work together for my good, but I need you to show me what you want for me.
But God, I will trust you. I want to live completely surrendered to your will and to the plan for my life. I know that these things will not be in vain but for your glory. I know that you will bring peace, power, and freedom when I surrender to you.
But God, I am going to need you to help me get there. Open up my hands and help me to release what I cling so tightly to. Things that ultimately may not even be good for me in the first place. Help me release my ideas and thoughts about what I think I should be doing or what I believe will be best for my future. Because I know that you know what’s best for me. You created me, so I know you know what’s best for me. You’ve never let me down, and I know you won’t start now. But help me. Open up my hands, my heart, my mind, and order my steps in line with your will.
Help me to say yes to you. Even when it’s tough, and I may not want to. I want to live completely surrendered to your will and aligned with your purpose for me. Help me to make the right choices that I might be pleasing to you.
And I will rest in the comfort of knowing that you got me and will never let me go. I will have peace, knowing that you have everything under control. I will close my eyes and fall into your open arms, knowing you’re there to catch me. I will find joy in the fact that in my moments of weakness, you show yourself strong. I will trust you.
It is well with my soul. And I thank you forever more.
In Jesus Name, Amen
