I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


let go + let god

Let go and let God …


That takes faith, doesn’t it?  Letting go requires a whole lotta faith!

I have a huge trial in my own life that is all very arbitrary and out of my control.  There isn’t a whole lot I can do about it and it’s out of my hands.

I’m not gonna lie … I’ve certainly stressed and struggled through it … I continue to … I’m human.  But the bottom line is that I’ve given this trial over to God.  I have no power over it, there’s nothing I can do about it, which in some ways, makes it easier to give it to God.

Unlike a different situation I’m faced with that has been harder for me to let go of the control.  There are more “earthly” things I feel I could do to control the situation and my flesh wants to take over and do just that.  I still have to stay constantly aware and prayerful that when thoughts and feelings surrounding this situation seep in … I need to consciously give them over to God.

In my prayer time, I make sure to ask the Holy Spirit to quicken my thoughts and help me to be ever aware of what I’m letting sink into my heart.  I don’t want ugly to dwell there.

I know my God is in control … of ALL situations.  I believe Him.  I believe His promises.  I have complete trust and confidence {faith} and will forever rest in Him.

What is one situation you’re currently holding onto?  It’s causing you stress, sleepless nights, tears … maybe even a few grey hairs?

Imagine that burden being lifted from you …

He’s willing.

He’s able.

He’s waiting.

Go ahead … give it a try.  Let go and let God.

    This is so hard for me, but God has shown me how to trust Him more in every situation. Letting go of control of our children’s lives was the toughest lesson.

    Agree with Southern Gal. Letting go of control in children’s lives is very hard. I must have Faith that God is taking care of everyone, not just me.

    I am going thru what seems like a marriage that is headed towards divorce and today despite just finding out that he is still seeing her I felt less anxious about the entire situation. I could not have found you at a better time. I know that the minute I completely let go and let God, He will bless me with rewards even greater than what I have asked for but letting go is so hard.
