Letting Go: You Can’t Steer From a Parked Car

Let go of all the things you have no control over: another person’s health, their reactions, other’s expectations, the loss of a job, a break up, a move across country, an illness, your past, whether your child is accepted to a certain school.

Let go of it! It’s like trying to wrestle an F5 hurricane and steering it in a different direction.

No matter how much you love, prepare, fix and plan, some areas of life are not in your hands, no matter how tight the grip.

But what if I let go?
Does it mean I don’t care? No. This is not your wheel to steer.

If I let go, something bad will happen. I assure you, if you don’t let go, it will.

That’s why I tell you, do not worry about every day life – whether you have enough food or drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Matthew 6 25-26.

Let go of all the things not in your control. Put away your fake magical powers and pray, and trust that God, the one who created the moon and the stars and YOU in such intricate detail, cares for you. It’s not the grip that makes us stronger, but the Letting Go! #powerofmoms #momstories #lettinggo
