Welcome to *Tending Tuesday*, our opportunity to hear a fellow writer’s voice, one who is seeking to encourage others in their walk with Jesus while tending her own life by the Word of God.

Now let’s see what Leah has to say about tending her way according to the Word…
Over the last few years, the Lord has been tending to my heart by helping me understand the concept of His sovereignty in a deeper and more personal way.
The word ‘sovereignty’ lends the idea of absolute power and absolute authority, which pretty well describes God. Yet, so often I settle for a lesser God. A God who might need my ‘help’ in managing the universe? You, too?
Our sovereign God led me to memorize several passages of Scripture that focus on His sovereignty, while showing the tenderness of His heart toward me. Psalm 91, Psalm 139, Isaiah 40:21-31, Philippians 4:6-7 all became permanently imprinted on my heart, reminding me of God’s absolute power and absolute authority.
The result of tending to my heart through memorizing Scripture about the sovereignty of God is that I am able to view the events of the world and the needs listed in my prayer journal through the lens of God’s sovereignty. I know that God does ALL things well, and that He truly is working everything out according to His plan and purposes.
Some would say I have a naïve faith. Perhaps. I prefer to view it as a child-like faith in a Father who loves His children deeply and desires for them to trust Him completely.
Does that mean that I never doubt or fret?
Hmmm, I wish. I am human, Type A, and an Enneagram 1, which means I like to control and have a nice, tidy, well-planned life.
Sure, I doubt and fret sometimes, but each time the Holy Spirit draws me back to remember the Sovereignty of God and His tender care of His children. In that moment, my heart and spirit are calmed and I rest in the sovereignty of God, knowing that whatever He allows is part of His plan.
How well does your heart trust in the sovereignty of God?
