Take Your Grubby Hands Off Of That…..It is Mine!

fighting for the finish book cover

“How will they know it is Me, if you keep trying to make something happen?”

A smack down, straight from God Almighty.  I am a bull-in-a-china-shop, a go-getter, stop-at-nothing, million-miles-an-hour woman, type-A, who always wants to be in control.  I get more accomplished before eight o’clock in the morning than most people do all day and in some cases all week.

Written goals organized into steps to be taken each day.  The biggest goal is marketing my book, Fighting for the Finish, and I am constantly weaving a web of purposeful steps to get my book “out there.”  I think about it constantly.

Then I got the smack-down from God.  Do I trust Him with the story He gave me?  I started to laugh to myself, yes, of course.  Who wouldn’t?  Reflecting upon my constant flurry of action, it was leading me to destruction, and in all honesty, I was NOT trusting Him.

Forgive me O Mighty God.  Hands off, I will rest in You!

Have you ever had God tell you to stop, rest in Him, knowing that He is working it all out?  Please share!

Katie has a hard time communicating and lately she has taken to drawing her desires, needs and wants. This morning Katie was no different. Her mother pushed paper and pencil towards Katie. After a few minutes Katie pushed the paper back at her mom and said,”HORSE!”

“Do you want a horse?” Her mom asks her.

“Yes!……..Buttons!” She exclaims.

Buttons is her go-to-horse at RAISE YOUR DREAMS FARM, where she loves to be loved by this huge pony.
