Ms. Independent

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 NLT)

Life is full of trials and hard times. There have been many times where I had to sit at the feet of Jesus and pray my heart out. I literally had to give all I had to God because I couldn't handle what I was going through anymore. And God completely took care of me. He carried me when I didn't have the strength to stand. He took care of me and He always has. I have a problem trying to be too independent. I try to do everything on my own, including the things I need to hand to God. This is definitely something I'm working on.. When any BIG issue comes up, the first thing I do is try to sort it out myself and I worry myself sick, when I should just hand it to God first thing! He's got me through every situation I've ever been through, so why in the world do I not just listen to Him? We have to remember, the same God who got us through our last trial, can get us through this one. He is the same FOREVER! 

Not only do we serve a God who can take care of us, He WANTS to take care of us. He longs for us to be close to Him!! This devotional was written from the heart of Ashley Pierce!! I look forward to reading your comments!!!
