There is one body and one Spirit–just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call–one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
I am not a decision-making kind of gal. You give me two choices and I’ll give you a very stressed look. I tend to avoid them at all costs–whether that looks like just picking the first of each choice without giving it any thought or putting the process off as long as I can. So when the Holy Spirit nudged my heart toward Himself, you might that I was overjoyed that He didn’t give me much say in the matter. He revealed that He is a third of the one God. He is attached to the one Father. Jesus is the one Son and I only have to have one faith. Moreover, this one Father, one Son, and one Spirit are together the one Being who holds everything. Everything. When I am genuinely putting my hope and trust in Him, He will guide each decision and He can bring glory to Himself from them. He brings peace when we don’t know how. He brings joy when we are prone to fear. He straightens our path when we cannot because He is the one who is sovereignly over all.
Thank you, Jesus, for giving yourself to me. I am over and over again overwhelmed by this world, but because of your sovereignty, I get to put my trust in you. Thank you for loving me enough to have taken all burdens off of me and bear them through the cross. I love you, Lord.
