Letting Go

Letting go can be one of the hardest things you ever do. When life knocks you on your feet and you are in the midst of trials and tribulations, it is so easy to start doubting and worrying. You often find yourself in such a dark deep pit of fear because you have no power or control over what you are dealing with. It’s then that you truly need to turn to God and release those fears knowing that He alone is in control. He alone can alter an outcome. It may not be what we want and we may never understand His Will, but we have to trust and believe the outcome is what’s best for all concerned. One day we will see the big picture and realize that His plan was best. Some days, if we are lucky, we look back and see some of the puzzle pieces of our lives come together and are so thankful that God was in control. When we can recognize those memories, it gives us peace knowing that He truly is in control.

The next time you feel yourself climbing that mountain of doubt and fear, remember to just let go and let God take control. When you do this, and truly let go, you will feel His peace instantly enter your soul. That deep breathe in after you give it to God is so comforting. You are giving Him the power to work on your behalf. All you have to do is believe, sit back and let God work His Miracles.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

~ Proverbs 3: 5-6

Break Down Your Walls!

This is an understatement for me and when I saw this post I knew immediately I needed to elaborate a little on why!
change
God never said life wasn’t going to be hard, but He did say He would always be there for us and He would get us through. My relationship with God these past two years has grown tremendously, especially after my heart attack in 2016. He has given me so many signs over the years, but these last two years His prescense has been more and more visible to me through His Signs. I now know that with Him, I can get through anything.
Change has to come from us though, because we can’t change anyone else. We can only change our reactions. We have to learn what our limits are; our priorities; and, what we are willing to endure. Change is not easy and I think everyone would agree on that! With change there are lots of emotional battles fighting the change, which can lead to depression and living through some of the toughest decisions you will ever have to make or are forced to live through. Again, God never said life would be easy.
I can say though, that God has brought me this far, and God will get me through. He has shown me so many signs, left me so many messages that I feeled totally blessed to have been able to recognize. Again, this morning He took me back to my very own book, “Break Down Your Walls: Be the Person God Created You to Be…Be a Better You!”, and it was my very own words that got me through my morning prayers and reconfirmed His Will for me and lightened my soul knowing that I am taking the right path….His path for what I need right now.
This journey so far, for sure, has been eye-opening and the signs I have received …. absolutely unforgettable!!!
