Let Go, Let God & Move Forward

When your mind is full of unnecessary worrying and overthinking, there is no room for the word of God to dwell within you and to enrich you. When you can’t let something go, there is no room for opportunity and blessings to come to you. Choose on both good days and bad days to look past the worries in your life and trust in God. No matter the temporary sorrows, what's to come will be so much more worth it. Choosing to let go and let God is easier said than done, but doing so allows for a bit of ease Navigating this Life Divine. 

I've already brought up this topic before, but it's one that I am constantly struggling with. Letting go. Whether it's something that ruined my day or altered a few months of my life, the ability in the choice I had to let go sooner could have saved me so much time and energy. A harsh reality is that “Our lives are meant to fall apart, it is an invitation to be more true”, not only to be more true but to learn a valuable lesson and greater do God's will. My New Year's resolution was mental resilience. A huge mountain to overcome, and I've realized recently it'll take more than just a year. It will also take various situations to challenge and grow my resilience. A big part of resilience is letting go. You can be strong, but not everything can be figured out, let those things go. I may not have liked some of the ways I've learned lessons so far this year but I'm thankful I did. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 reads, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” In overcoming these times I know each one was meant to be. So I can be nothing but grateful. 

“Sometimes it's best to leave it alone, because you can’t keep stressing yourself over what's already done and questioning what more you can do. Move forward, let it go and trust in what's to come.” The action of moving forward or the in-between of a hardship and the outcome can arguably be the worst part in letting go. The battle of what you know and what you feel. That's when it's hardest. Where you often add onto any already existing heartbreak trying to match your feelings to the reality of a situation. “The biggest mistake people generally make is wishful thinking, you want something to be true even if it isn't true, and so you ignore the real truth because of what you want to be true.” Our minds and the thoughts it produces are tricky. Everyone at some point in their life has been this way, and out of all the people I know, I think I may be the worst about it. Wishful thinking, immediately fearing the worst outcome and creating things in my head or ignoring obvious truths and trusting or loving someone longer than I should. Be okay swallowing the hard pill of the truth and move forward. 1 Peter 5:6-7 reads, “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time (7) Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.” Give and let go. Learn humbly and move forward from the situation. Pray constantly and speak your mind.

If it's out of your hands then let it be out of your mind too. Stop losing time, there's only so much of it in this lifetime. You won't be able to take anything with you, so be intentional. I speak to myself most of all. As the year is nearing its end, I'm so glad I made that resolution and can reflect on it now. I've only made a dent into progress, but progress is progress. Looking forward to where I will be this time next year, Lord Willing. 

Learn to let go and let God. Pray without ceasing, have humility in learning life’s many lessons and move forward in Navigating this Life Divine.
