Our Ebenezer

It would be so easy to throw in the towel. Frustrations rise. They aren't moving fast enough...all the powers that be. It must be our fault for not saying the right thing to woo those into moving anything quicker.
And time seems to be a critical part of the journey to Little One.
Time. Timing. It's not about US.
Today a friend shared with me the Ebenezer stone.
For any of us struggling with Timing, waiting, over and over dying to self.
We have this as our reminder.
Samuel took a large stone and placed it between the towns of Mizpah and Jeshanah. He named it Ebenezer—"the stone of help"—for he said,
 "Up to this point the Lord has helped us!" —1 Samuel 7:12, NLT


Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
hither by thy help I'm come;
and I hope, by thy good pleasure,
safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God;
he, to rescue me from danger,
interposed his precious blood. —Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing

We are HOLDING ON. We are raising our Ebenezer.
Up to this point the Lord has helped us.
He will never let us go.
He loves Little One more than we can fathom.
We have been convicted to let go of ALL of our fleshly desires to control
Circumstances We Don't LIKE.
Holding on to faith. We remain Steadfast. Our Ebenezer.

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

It's not your fault.. it's time to let go. You are wrestling with an angel, let the angel win...give it to God. Just let go so He can take it from you and steer the ship the way it's supposed to go... Much love, Renee
