Letting Go


At 45 years old I am just beginning to become who God created me to be.

Insecurities and doubts have fallen away and in their place faith has taken root, not because of anything I’ve done but because of what He has done. And as my faith has grown I've learned to let go.

I let go of the plans that I had for myself, the ideas of who I should be and the disappointments of who I wasn’t.

I let go of the past and all that I’ve done and all that I haven’t done.

I let go of the fear of the what if’s and the if only’s.

I let go and I let God have control.

I prayed the prayer, “Not my will Lord, but yours” and meant it.

I stopped trying to figure it all out and stopped trying to make something happen and I prayed, “Move me God, into the position and plan you have for me, whatever that may be.”

I prayed believing that whatever His will was for me would be so much greater than any plans or dreams I had for myself and I believed that whatever happened would be GOD’S plan and that there was always purpose in His plan.

I don’t boast about my own strengths or abilities but about the power of the ONE who created me, the ONE who knew me before He formed me in my mother’s womb and the mighty works that He desires to do through me.

I know that I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.

God’s purpose and plan for our lives include realizing who we are in Christ.

We are more than we ever thought or believed we could be!

We were planned, called, justified and glorified to live according to the purpose God has for us.

We just need to let go and let God do His work in us and through us and leave the outcome to Him.

Romans 8:28-30 (NKJV)
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
