Lent Musings 28

Psalm 89:15
Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Isaiah 41:13
For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand,
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’

A friend posted a page from her devotional book this morning and these were the scriptures the page listed. It spoke about needing to let go of somethings and learning to hold on to others. This spoke to me today because there are things I need to let go of and in the letting go, there is fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of losing a sense of control that I never actually had anyway. For the things of the big outside world, and the things of my little personal universe. If I shut my eyes and stop trying so hard to steer, and just walk in the light of God’s face, then I can let go of that steering wheel. It is to big and too hard for me anyway.

Hebrews reminds me that Jesus was, is, and will be, the life, the truth, the way. He said his yoke is light and I need to remember to give my burdens to Him.

And Isaiah, oh what a thought…That God will hold my hand and tell me to fear not. He will help me. I can close my eyes and walk in the light, Jesus is still the savior of the world and God will hold my hand and help me.
