Hello Journey Mates! Happy 2012, this is officially my first blog entry of the new year!

I've entitled it release because that is what this month has been for me so far; releasing. You maybe thinking to yourself releasing what... What the heck is she talking about?

Well, for me it has been about releasing myself, my dreams, problems, fears, and people to God. So may times in my life I've gotten caught in this vicious cycle of holding onto things that were outside of my control. In doing so I've stressed myself out, and also shown that I was not fully trusting God to do what he has promised to do in His word. (He doesn't need our help)

Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. - Psalm 20:4 May He grant you according to your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans.

When we submit/release all of ourselves to the Lord we allow Him to do the work in our heart that needs to be done. That work usually consists of some healing, forgiveness and renewed thinking. Once that work is happening, we began to develop new desires and dreams that line up with His word. Hence the reason He will give us the desires and secret petitions of our hearts, as well as fulfilling all of our plans.

I challenge you today to release everything to God, and allow Him to do the work in your life that you so secretly desire.
