Alexis, is one of my friends from church. It was this night that completely opened my eyes and had me in tears again when I saw her video, that my friend posted on her Facebook. I was so moved that night by what she said, because she spoke her true words of trusting God with everything, with no limits and without borders. This resonated with me through this week, that I reached out to her if it was okay to share this video. It was a night of vulnerability, connection, and really seeing how God can truly move in someones life completely. It's short, sweet, and yet powerful.
I think it’s the part “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders”... was really hard.
I was going through a hard time in life so the fact that I had to put my full trust in somebody, with no borders and to put no limit on God, was something that was the most difficult thing to do. Because you are saying “spirit lead me where my trust has no borders, where there is no limit to what you’re going to do. No matter what you are going to do with me, no matter where we are about to go. I am giving you my trust. You can do whatever. So I think that was so hard for me, for two years I had to say I don’t why I am here in california or for a year, I don’t know why I am here. But God lead me where my trust is without borders… it’s not somewhere... is perfect for me right now but whatever it is why I am here God, lead me where my trust is without borders.
“I will call upon your name” see that is hard, to be just completely vulnerable, even if it’s with God. That is so hard to say I am giving you everything because I don’t know what to do at this point anymore. And it’s hard, to say “here no borders, no limits” cuz honestly my way is not working, whatever I am doing is not working so beyond the waters, beyond what I can see, beyond what I am doing God. I am giving you my trust, beyond what I can see or fathom. I am giving it to you, because honestly I can’t do it. And it’s so hard to sit there and say “this isn’t what I want to do but I have to trust you. No boxes, no nothing.” Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, so that’s been where I have been for a year...lead me without borders, without borders. And that is so hard.
