Exceedingly, abundantly above all I could ask or imagine

I used to think the above statement was a place. Perhaps a season of my life I’d eventually get to when I had a certain amount of money, or car, or kids, or the absence of my everyday struggles that plague me. But it’s not.

It’s God’s best for me, not my best for me.  

It’s a surrendered mindset that understands that what God has for you is better than what you could ever dream up in your mind and for yourself.

it’s finally surrendering, it’s living at the edge of yourself and allowing God to take-over. It’s a bit scary in the ✨𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙄 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙖𝙨𝙠 𝙤𝙧 𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙚✨ cos I never asked for this stuff or this season or thought I was qualified to sustain it, but here ( in the surrendered ) I just have to stay surrendered.

So, Stop striving for the better and surrender to the best!

This doesn’t mean you won’t accomplish your dreams; it just means when you do they may not be as satisfying as you hoped – as you can’t find peace or true satisfaction apart from HIS dreams for you. So if you can embrace this ✨𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙄 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙖𝙨𝙠 𝙤𝙧 𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙚✨mindset now — life will look and feel and be different – and above all, you could ever ask or imagine.

True story.
