This Easter morning, the kids and I got up early and drove to the beach to watch the sun rise. We stopped at Dunkin Donuts on the way for some breakfast and hot drinks.
We picked a good spot, then sat huddled under a blanket sipping hot cocoa, nibbling donuts and watching the sun light up the sky while I aloud read the story of Jesus' death and resurrection.
It was simply beautiful.
Later when it warmed up, the kids played in the sand and waves while I read and thought and talked to God. There have been some things I've struggled with entrusting to Him. I know He's wanted me to just turn it over into His very capable hands. This morning, I saw the Lord's heart and I understood why I've been hanging on. I didn't think He cared as much about it as I do. Silly, I know. But that's how we are sometimes.
So I let go.
"If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all -- how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?" Romans 8: 31,32
"Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. " Psalm 55:22
