Just Let Go

“Those who leave everything in God’s hands will eventually see God’s hands in everything.” Anon

I came across that quote a few months ago and forgot about it. Came across it a few weeks ago and it has been on my mind ever since.

The question I keep asking myself was why. Truthfully, the answer came back to me. It’s because I haven’t been leaving everything in God’s hands. And then another why.

It’s not that I don’t believe that all things work together for good for those who love the Lord, it’s just the timing in which they work together for good, not only for myself but for others. I had to be reminded to just let go. I must not only trust God’s providence but also his timing, which I can testify to. He has brought me through a physical attack from a complete stranger and an attempted rape from another, among so many other things. He brought me through the death of my father, which had crushed me.

Letting go can sometimes be difficult, but it is so refreshing. πŸ˜‰

What Do You See?

When you look at problems you’re facing, what do you see? Do you look upon them as things that can’t be conquered, so why bother? Or do you look upon them as challenges that overtime you’ll overcome? How does looking at them either way affect the outcome?

I guess it’s like going through a dark tunnel. Some know there is a light at the end of it and continue to go on, perhaps turning on their own lights to help guide the way. Others continue on or stop in the dark, and sadly not seeing any light at all.

What Is In Your Life Suitcase?

I remember a few years ago trying to move around things in my suitcase as I tried to make sure it was the required weight allowed by the airline. If it had been too heavy, I would have had to pay or remove some of things out in order to bring it down to what it had to be.

But here we are in life, some of us, struggling with some of the things that we’re carrying in our “life suitcases”, some of the relationships that we have to unpack. Some are struggling with how heavy their “suitcases” have become.

I know it isn’t easy as unpacking a literal suitcase, but we still have to try, even if we have to start with just one thing.

One Word Friday

Some have a lot of it. Others have too little of it. And yet some have not enough of it. Time.

I think you’ve heard the expression time waits on no one. Life goes on even as some waste the time they’re given. Life goes on even as some regret how they used their time. Life goes on even as some wish that they could turn back the hands of time. Life goes on. Time, in one word what is it.

If commenting, remember kid-friendly in your responses please. In other words, no swearing or foul language in any language. πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰
