On letting go...

Sometimes you just have to let go...

     of what you think you have learned;
          where you think you are headed;
               who you have been trying to be.

Sometimes you just have to stop...

     stop trying so hard;
          stop juggling too many things;
               stop relying on the same efforts that have failed to bear fruit.

Sometimes you have to be still...

     unplug;
          refocus;
               recharge.

All the while trusting that when you do, the things that matter most will still be there when you have the strength to try again.

And remember...

     That strength won't be found in trying harder.
          It won't be found in doing more.
               It doesn't come from within. 

It comes from above. 



Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. - Colossians 3:1-2

  1. I never expected to be going through what we are right now, without God's strength I would be overwhelmed! I'm so thankful for a God who never leaves us! ❤

  4. I'm bookmarking this for whenever I won't be strong enough to take decisions or deal with life. As much as I believe in God, I think we all should also believe in ourselves. At times, when the power comes from within, it also comes from above. :)

  7. Could not have said this better myself. Such an important, beautifully written reminder we all need to look back upon when life isn't going the way we had hoped (or planned).

  12. I love that our God is one that can triumph over the impossible if we just give it all to Him. Setting our attention to Him is the greatest thing we can do for our lives. Thank you so much for this lovely encouragement!

  14. This has been a pull on my heart as well. I am letting go of some of my projects that were interfering with my family's life.
