"Unless the Lord builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep." ~Psalm 127:1-2 (NKJV)

Good Morning! I have been thinking on this scripture for over a week and I could not wait to share it with you today. I kept saying it over and over again - and each time I did I gained more confidence. I pray that this short inspirational thought builds your faith today, too!

Every one of us has a calling on our life. Some of us are living it out and others are still searching for God to show them exactly what they should do for His Kingdom. Others of you don't even realize that God is using YOU right where you are today to impact someone. But the first thought today is this-- let God lead you and build your life centered around Him!!! It is working in vain or walking through life in vain if you do not let God build your life!

We must allow God to not only lead our every move but to guard us and take care of our every need. When we are completely aligned in God's word, in His ways, and surrendered to His will we can only live blessed by Him! If we allow ourselves to rely on our own efforts, continue to live anxious and fearful, then we will never gain true peace.

My challenge this week is: if you are trying to plan your life, make life happen through your own efforts, or continuously worrying over your life then you will never be free. I urge you today to LET GO and LET GOD move through you! Leave your will, your burdens, and your plans at the altar today and give them to Jesus right now! I promise if you will let them go then God will give you more peace and happiness than you could ever dream or imagine! Today let it all go and give your heart and life to God and watch Him move in every area of your life! You will gain peace and sleep like never before!

I love and pray for each of you! Livin' Lively, Laine
