sit here on the eve of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of how magnificent our
God is and how abundantly He shows His love and grace to us, even when we
try to be lord of our own lives.
week past has been a reminder to me that the more I try to control the
direction of my life, the less smoothly it seems to flow. Since
embarking on this dedicated journey of faith to pursue a ministry in music,
I have actively tried to relinquish control to God. Yet, even so, I've
found I try to hang on to just a token few things. And, let me tell
you, they've not gone as I've planned. Much advance planning and fretting
have gone into the release of the CD. Even still, the
behind-the-scenes view has been fraught with obstacles and circumstances I
thought I had planned around. In the midst of being overwhelmed in
frustration, and while stuck in Austin gridlock, I had an enlightened
moment: the things in my life that have caused me the most angst and created
the greatest amount of stress over the last few months have been man-made.
More precisely, Jennifer-made. When I'm pushing the agenda, I've got
everything to lose. Failure to meet a scheduled deadline creates
disappointment - to me. In other words, I've failed myself. But
when I let go of the control and recognize that ALL THINGS are in God, and
therefore God is in all things, the meter stops ticking, the deadlines
become lifelines, and I find I can exhale.
as I reflect on all that I have to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season,
it really boils down to one point. I am ever grateful to be a child of
Wishing you much joy and bounty in our Lord and Savior.
Yours in Christ,
