HEART ISSUE: What concerns keep you awake at night? Have you offered them to the Lord and let them go?
PRAYER FOCUS: Lord, teach me to "lie down in green pastures." Help me to abandon all of the details of my life to Your loving care. Amen.
Abandonment to God is not a fleeting occurrence. It is the lifestyle of a Christian who has forsaken her own will in favor of God's will in every aspect of her life.
