Dont wait .  the time will never be just right.

Napoleon Hill

April 14th - just let it go

Let today be the day you learn the grace of letting go and the power of moving on.

Steve Maraboli

Letting go is a daily moment by moment choice .  We must learn to surrender and give it to God.  Whenever negative thoughts seek to invade our space, we must cut them out and give them to God right away.  His mercies are new ever morning, so that what happened yesterday, last year us completely gone.  Carrying around the past will only take up space for Gods goodness, grace and favor.  

Do not take yesterdays mistakes in to the clean slate of today.  The world tries constantly to add worries to each day, so it’s important to let go and let God. Giving it to God means letting go and letting God handle it all.

Worry adds not a single day to our lives,  In fact worry presses us every second.  Not only can it affect our hearts and minds, but our bodies too.  Worry does nothing positive.  We can only change one day at a time.  Living in the future robs us of the joy of today. Each day is a gift and we miss it when we our minds to dwell on the negative.  Trying to control the future is like trying to control the wind .  Contentment in today will prevent our eyes from wondering off to tomorrow.

Forget the negative and accentuate the positive. I can’t control anything about my circumstances except how I react to them.  I’m in charge of my attitude. I’m the only one in charge of my attitude.  I’m the only person that can control it. but even more important is the fact that I can control it.  Attitude is not the result of circumstances. Circumstances are the rusult of my attitude. Life is to short so do your best to see it brightly and share it with others.  No one wants to be dragged down by a negative attitude.  Be the person to lift someone up and not someone who drags  them down.

A sure way to fix a bad attitude is to feel more positive.

Look back and be grateful. Look ahead and be hopeful.  Look around and be helpful.

When something is too big for me handle, I turn it over to God, He can do a much better job of handling it than I can. Let go and let God.

Many times I look for a gem in a post, this time I did not have to hunt, it jumped out at me. YOu said:

Too many of us, and I mean me too, bring up yesterday and let it invade our today enough to make us worry. I will go over the thought above today, it is a good one to live by, THANKS.

I think Carrie Underwood said it best, "Jesus take the wheel!"
Thanks for the reminder, the only thing I can control is my own reaction to circumstances, good or bad.

Letting go and letting God work is about the only thing we can do these days. And lots of prayer!
