Take My Hand

Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. (Psalm 139:10, New King James Version)

"I can do it!" Those are often the words we hear from a very determined toddler who wants to do thing by themselves. As adults, we try to get to take our hand so we can help them and make sure they don't hurt themselves. They want that control. It's the same way with God. We want control of the situation. We think we know what's best, and let's face it, each time we try to do it we fall on our face. We want control, but it doesn't work that way. The Lord tells us to give up that control and let Him handle it. Now is it just me or is that hard for us to do? I want to pull God along to show Him that "Lord I really do know what's best!" He shows me quickly that I don't have a clue! Do you need to give up control today? Maybe of a relationship, maybe materal things. Whatever it is, let me encourage you to give God full control. He will never steer you wrong!

Father, help us give our lives fully over to You. Give us the strength to give up that control. In Jesus Name, Amen. 


  1. Thanks for sharing your words, Jamie. As you know, I have been struggling with giving up control in my life. I love the expression "Let go and Let God". I am slowly learning to do that. Love you Jamie girl and blessed to have you as a friend.

  2. Thanks, sweet Jamie! I'm ready for Him to lead me through this crazy busy day!!
    Love you!!

  3. AMEN!!!! Giving up control has always been difficult for me. The Lord and I had to go around a few times for me to realize that He knows what's best for me. This is a great word Jamie! Praying your day is blessed!

  4. Sooo true Jamie! We must relinquish control in order for God to His work. :) Blessings, Hester ;)
