Don’t Be Disheartened: Lean In
Dr. Jodie Chiricosta with Charisma Magazine writes:
Lean in: Those words in my spirit gave me pause one morning as I was pouring out my frustrations to the Lord about the confusing days in which we live. As I pondered it, a picture formed in my mind of a child leaning in to her father. Instead of fretting or striving, God wants us to lean into Him. From that position, we can hear His heart about all that is going on in the world. We can feel His strength and find peace knowing we are His. We can trust Him with it all.
