You can read Random Thoughts Part 1 through 9 that were previous posts in this category.  More thoughts that have blessed me and I pray will bless you as well:

1.    “What is needed for happy effectual service is simply to put your work into the Lord’s hand, and leave it there. Do not take it to Him in prayer, saying, ‘Lord, guide me, Lord, give me wisdom, Lord, arrange for me,’ and then arise from your knees, and take the burden all back, and try to guide and arrange for yourself. Leave it with the Lord, and remember that what you trust to Him you must not worry over nor feel anxious about. Trust and worry cannot go together." – Hannah Whitall Smith

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence indeed is the LORD. – Jeremiah 17:7

Why do I keep taking back what I give Him? Forgive me, Father!  – Chris

2.     "If Jesus Christ is my master in the sense of being my Lord, then all the plans of my life must be laid down for His supervision and judgment and authority." – Robert Speer

 ”Thomas responded to Him, ‘My Lord and my God!’” John 20:28 (HCSB)

Truly, I desire that I let go and allow You to fully take the “reigns” of my life! –  Chris

As you read these, ask God how He wants you to respond to Him.
