But as I stood there in front of her, humbled as she gave me a necklace, an awkward hug, I didn’t see a star – I saw a sister.
But I do have a confession. One big fear. The biggest of big. One that I have hinted at and tried to plan and control away. It’s the one I’m scared of the most.
And so I left it all behind. All the working for His favor. All the seeking for answers. All the desiring of the acceptance of people. Because He already has what I need. And He always has.
In that moment, I felt myself truly let go of “all else.” I felt myself running to his arms. Accepting his love, his peace, his forgiveness, and his grace.
