So many times I wanted to let go, but the devil wanted me to stay miserable and hang on to whatever the problem was,,,,so I did. I stayed moiserable.
And I just wanted to give up......I mean, what was the point? No matter how hard I prayed and begged and pleaded, it semed all was lost.
I was wandering around, doing only what I had to do. I went to church, and to work. I ate when I was hungry, smiled when necessary, and on the outside acted like all was just wonderful. But inside, where it really mattered, I was a mess.
A lady from church, who is a great prayer warrior, noticed how I really felt. She told me, "Girl your gonna have to let God have it and then leave it with Him. Let go and let God"
Easier said than done. But those words kept running through my mond. Let Go. let God. Over and over.
So I started reading my Bible more. Going to Bible study. I started listening to God. And I started letting things go.
I noticed my burden seemed lighter. I smiled more, even when I didn't have to. I started to see the good in myself and in others.
I may have to give things to him more than once. But I have learned to stop when I want to worry and fret about something and say Ok God, you can have it. I don't want it anymore. You are more equipped to handle this than me.
And he is faithful to take it from me.
2 Timothy 2:10-13........
10..So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen.
11...This is a trustworthy saying: if we die with him, we will also live with him.
12...If we endure hardship , we will reign with him.
If we deny him, he will deny us.
13...If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.
God Bless you,
