Letting Go

Not really a post today. Sorry about that. The thing is, I'm not as strong as I think I am sometimes. I struggle. I fight with God instead of surrenduring to Him. Ask anyone who knows me well and they will tell you I can be the most stubborn person in the world. That can be a very good thing and a very bad thing.

I'm dealing with something that is very scary for me. It could be nothing, it could be life changing. All I know is I need to stop being afraid and simply surrender and trust. Because even though I understand on a head level that God is in control, I need to understand it from my heart.

Back to the regularly scheduled program tomorrow. Thanks for indulging me.



Let it Go (by Tenth Avenue North)

I've been holding on so tight
Look at these knuckles
They've gone white
I'm fighting for who I wanna be
I'm just trying to find security

But You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the ones that lose control
You say you will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul
You say let it go.

Well it's hard enough to hear
Harder still, to move beyond this fear
We know there's nothing I can bring,
So tell me what do you want from me?

But You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one to lose control
You say You will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul
You say let it go, You say let it go

What do I love?
What do I hate?
What will I lose?
What will I gain?
How do I save my soul?
What if I bend?
What if I break?
What will it cost?
What will it take?
For you to save my soul.

You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one to lose control
You say You will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul

You say let it go, You say let it go
You say life is waiting for the one to lose control
You say you will be, everything I need
You said if I lose my life it's then I'll find my soul
You say let it go, You say let it go

Oh wow... About four years ago, someone sent me this song. I saved it on my computer, but didn't know who sang it. Today, it played across my iPod and I saw, "Let It Go- Unknown" and now I know who it really is. They have a lot of good music.

Praying for you!

Kat -- perhaps it is that these moments are the gift that awaken us to the power of surrender, the beauty of release, the grace of Love.

May light illuminate your path. May you always know, You are safe in God's embrace.

Sister, praying for you. Many times, facing the unknown, fears, etc. are God's way of dragging us to His throne of grace. More often than not, I've found that in my desperate times God has a message for me and I'm just not listening well enough or I'm just not "getting it." He brings us to a place of seeking Him above all else. He wants our full attention...and in our brokeness...He's got it. He's always in the process of drawing us to Himself and tranforming us into the image of Christ.

We must never forget...God is ALWAYS in control...in that Truth we can learn to be content with whatever transpires because we can take it from His loving hand. He teaches us to pray for what we want, surrender it all, and find joy in what He gives. When you're in need...He is ALL you need. :)
Prayers,
Cherie

There's link love, comment love, phone call love, text love, e-mail love and then there's real love. The Star Breather, that God, don't forget He's holding you together with laminen. (Louis Giglio) You're branded with love. And now you can know prayer love from all of us. It's all good.

The more you hand over and not take back the easier it gets. Step by step, minute by minute, don't think beyond that.

Be blessed with rest and replenishment. I'm praying for peace and understanding for you.

I bloody love Tenth Avenue North. I think they're more worshipful than most other Christian bands out there right now... even the big church bands!!!
