One of my goals this year is to RELEASE.


The definition of release is: allow or enable to escape from confinement; set free.  Also to allow (something) to move, act, or flow freely.

God has brought this word to my heart and asked me to RELEASE Casey and RELEASE my family.

Release Casey to fully serve in ministry.  Release my family to be all they were created to be.  Release my home to be used for His purposes.  Release my own plans to allow His full will.  JUST RELEASE.

Oh it hurts even to write about it.

I HATE release.  I like control.  I like manipulate.  I like planning.  I like to withhold.

RELEASE is not natural.

BUT RELEASE is the word and the vision.

So it’s something I am really praying into.  I want to release my sweet husband and my family and my LIFE for all God has intended it to be.  I don’t want to hold anything back or anyONE back.

We are HIS.

These verses have come to my heart as I am praying about release:

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”  -Galatians 6:7

“”But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.”  -Malachi 4:2

I want to sow release and surrender.  I want to live free.  I want to be filled with joy.


Will you pray for me and our home, that we will fully release?  And maybe there is something you too can release?  SomeONE you can release?  It hurts, but it will FREE YOU.
