Its ok if you can’t handle everything today.
October 14th - let go and let God
Some of us think holding makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.
There are going to be times in our lives when we feel like we’ve hit our limit. We can’t do one more thing than we’re already doing. We can’t handle another task to be done. Those are the times that we tend to lose control. When things are beyond my control, I figure it’s time to let it go and turn it over to One that can.
We cannot possibly do everything and be everything for others. There is only so much than anyone can take. If it’s beyond my simple means, it will not beyond God’s care. It has no limit
Letting go helps us to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps to restore our balance. It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us. It frees us from unneccessary stress.
This is especially hard for those of us that like to be in control, to manage things for ourselves. It’s the product of prayer,, determination, hard work, courage and more prayer. It takes serious effort.
Letting go is not the same thing as giving up. The difference lies in the attitude of a person.
Giving up means quitting something.. Letting go means to set someone free. It’s mainly used where someone is allowed to let go for betterment. Giving up is used for acts of sacrifice, Giving up reduces your life, Letting go Expands it. Giving up is self defeat. Letting go is self care.
You must learn to let go Release the stress. You were never in control anyway.
