being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it onto completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
This last Summer, I had a great opportunity to spend some time in Italy with my incredible husband. The trip was amazing and I was blessed to see some new things in my faith journey with the Lord. Our final stop on our trip was in Pisa, Italy. It was here I learned the value of “Leaning”.
Have you ever thought that maybe the Tower of Pisa woudn’t be so famous, had it not been leaning? The value in the Bell Tower comes from it’s ability to lean and not fall. This got me to thinking, am I more valuable to God when I’m leaning! More valuable when I’m leaning on the Word! More valuable when I admit my imperfections! More valuable when I surrender control! The answer is a resounding “YES”!
Take time this week to lean on God! Find strength in the arms that will never let you go! May your value only increase in time, as you surrender yourself to God’s purpose!
Dear Father God, Thank You for this valuable lesson! I often get caught up in how things ought to be and forget to just lean on You! My value doesn’t come from striving to attain perfection, it comes from leaning on the One who is!
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms,
