on letting go
Lately I’ve been really struggling with letting it all go. Putting it all in God’s hands.
My entire life I have needed to feel in control. How does someone like that let go?
Worry and fear is a constant burden in my life. I convince myself that I can put it in God’s hands without fully letting go, but I know I’m fooling myself. Doing that means I am still trying to be in control and what’s the point in that?
I’m not who I convince myself I am, who I want to be, and most importantly who God wants me to be.
I pray daily for my purpose in this life to be revealed. Am I not looking hard enough? Am I not being patient enough? Or am I holding on too tight?
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Everyday I am blessed to wake up to these sweet babies and they are a constant reminder of why I need to let Him.
They don’t know the problems of this world. They are dependent. They need.
3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
It’s amazing what these sweet little souls can teach us.
