Dear Tightly Wound Woman:
It’s taken awhile, but it seems like you’ve finally reached the end of yourself. For years you’ve tried to muster up enough resolve but you’ve fallen short. And that frustrates you.
You’ve misinterpreted dependency for weakness and you’ve tried to accomplish and lead in your own wisdom. My way seems like a drag at times so you’ve tried to do it your way.
But as you hit a wall again, not knowing how to change, you call out to Me. You admit your deep need and that your way isn’t working out so well. You ask for My help.
I smile. I’ve been waiting for this moment. The moment you invite Me to help. Oh, how ready I am to help because I love you. I am for you. I am with you.
The breakthrough you need is found as you break up with your own way of doing things and return to me–letting Me lead once more.
As My body was broken I made a way through for you. You experience breakthrough when you allow yourself to be broken too. As you stop going your own way, you find the way home.
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. -John 14:6
Letting go frees you to be more of your true self, the one made in My image—not the one held together by the duct tape of your own assertion.
As you relinquish your attempts to make yourself whole, you discover that I am the One who holds you together.
You don’t have to fear falling part because I am in the restoration business. I can glue and re-purpose that which is discarded. I mend the gaping holes and weave grace into weak places.
Be patient. This is a journey. As you turn to follow, you discover that I’ve held what you needed all along. I specialize in the impossible. My wisdom usurps anything this world offers as I set you on the right path. Yes, there is a right path. There is freedom within the path but this narrow way is illuminated by Truth that the world deems foolish.
As we go forward, listen to My voice above the noise. Tune your heart to Mine as I direct your ways.
Change is possible, but not on your own strength and initiative.
Don’t fear the process. Take your worry and turn it to worship. Let Me break through the tough exterior and hold your tender heart. I love you. I made you. And I’m not letting go. I will hold you and restore you.
Thank you for inviting Me to help. I delight in being strong for you.
Don’t let your weakness drive you away from My Presence in shame. Let it drive you to My open arms, waiting to receive you. You feel like a failure when you can’t do it on your own, but, darling, that is exactly when you find strength—My strength.
Rest in My sufficiency. I’ve got you. I’ve got this. I am working on your behalf.
What a beautiful breakthrough—you dependent on Me.
