The stretch is never an easy place to be. Here is the place where you are offered two choices. The choice to let go and finish what you begun, or the choice to check out and leave the challenge that is facing you. I have had the privilege over the past few days to work with girls who are facing this very issue everyday, who are pushing through there pain and biggest fears to a promise much bigger than themselves. It is in this place where your freedom can be harmful to yourselves, a place where he is letting you decide where you want to go. This is the place where you humble your heart in your lowest of lows, and admit your weakness which is your blindfold from freedom. The test of strength will kick in. It is in this place when you find yourself laying in the bottom of the dark pit naked and cold with nothing else to hold onto but him. That is where you find your release. Nothing else will satisfy Nothing else will please your hungry heart. Nothing else will sustain you. Nothing else will bring you to a place of peace. Ive tried. But nothing is like my God. I want to encourge your pursuit of freedom, I want you to find a release in your weakness knowing he is making you strong. This is your test of strength, to surrender in this place.
