My Lord, let me not murder the peace You have given me by listening to the endless cacophony of futile questions storming in my heart. Let me not succumb to the sting of doubts because I cannot control the details of every circumstance. Why is it so hard to trust? Why do I consistently forget that You are Sovereign and that Your plan unfolds according to Your purpose? Strengthen my confidence with humility, Lord God. Equip my heart to rejoice in the shielding Your armor of love provides. Only then will the arrows of fear be doused in the cleansing water of love so that the purifying tips penetrate the heart of Your child. Though I do not understand why things have to be a certain way, I lay down my need-to-know upon the altar of Your Sovereignty. I gladly submit to my King. I delight to give You the weakness of my trust because it is then that Your presence makes me strong. Under the Word of God in 2 Corinthians 12:9 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses,
so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
2 Corinthians 12:9, NRSV
