Lately I've been contemplating on Resignation.   Resignation
My will and desires have to be put aside and yielded to a God who is all knowing and who knows what is best for me. 
He knows what is best for me~  
That's a hard pill to swallow when I love to hold on to the reigns of life and take control of every minute detail. 
It's a hard road that even the Apostle Paul walked.  So why should I think that I am somehow exempt from it all?  Even the Lord Jesus resigned his will when He was in Gethsamane to go to the cross.

Resignation is the act or an instance of resigning. The unresisting acceptance of something as inescapable; submission. 

Have I asked the Lord to take the trial away?  You bet!  Over and over again.  And as time passes there is a yielding to the Lord and what He has done~ and is doing~ in my life and heart.  It's all a part of His gracious and loving plan for my life of a road to resignation and submission.  

It's also about trusting Him.

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  
2 Corinthians 12:9

In my flesh, I want strength to be all about me.  
I want it to be a victorious proclamation of  my works and my doings.  

"Look what I've done!!!"   
But in my weakness and brokenness, it is the perfect opportunity for My Lord to show Himself strong through me.  
Because it's all about Him.
His divine strength is so much more mighty then my humane strength.  
His grace is sufficient through it all..  
And that is what Victory is all about.

  2. Nicely said. I keep fighting to hang onto control of my emotions because I don't like people to see my pain. I keep seeing the scripture above. Me thinks the Lord is trying to tell me something. Somehow, I need to be okay with my emotions because God gets the glory. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I understand Michelle and struggle with the same thing. I ask this not just of you but of me as well... What's better? Being genuine and intentional or trying to suppress who you are? Just a thought! (((hugz)))

  3. We all need to acknowledge our brokenness. I appreciate your honest words. It is all about God, honoring and glorifying Him. As we submit in obedience he can work through us.
    I'm visiting from Spiritual Sundays. Have a blessed weekend!

    1. It's true what you say about brokeness and obedience. So glad you stopped by Carol!
