POWER IN LETTING GO
Many people are single, just like myself and holding on to faith and hope of that one true love. In order for that to happen though. We have to be able to closed the door on what didn't work. We all go through disappointments, setbacks and things that we don’t understand. Maybe you prayed for a loved one, but they didn’t get well. Or maybe you worked hard for a promotion, but you didn’t get it. You stood in faith for a relationship, like I have recently, but it didn’t work out. One of the best things you can do is release it. Let it go. Don’t dwell on it anymore. If you go around wondering why things didn’t work out, all that’s going to do is lead to bitterness, resentment and self-pity. Before long, you’ll be blaming others, blaming yourself, or even God. You may not have understood what happened.
It may not have been fair. But when you release it, it’s an act of your faith. You’re saying, “God, I trust You. I know You’re in control. And even though it didn’t work out my way, You said, ‘All things are going to work together for my good.’ So I believe You still have something good in my future.”
There is power in letting go of the past and the frustration of trying to figure everything out. When you release your worries and sadness, you are saying, “God, You are in control. I trust You.” And when you put your hope in God, that’s when God can heal your heart and lead you forward into Gods path of blessing for you.
My thoughts and experience anyway… One day at a time.
