Life sucks sometimes.
But it’s still awesome.
I’ve had a rough go these past few months, suffering from Australia withdrawals. Yup. I only lived there for a year and have been back a few months, but you can imagine it’s been a drastic change. I can’t describe in words how hard it has been leaving my home away from home, leaving my family, the pain I feel inside… so I’m not even gonna try.
One day I heard a God whisper.
I heard Him. He didn’t have to say it twice. For a while I had tried everything else but letting go… But as soon as I started to let go, freedom entered. And a series of revelations began.
Then I got to thinking for those of you who are also trying to let go of something good that God has called you to let go of. Here’s what I’ve come to find. It’s simple, yet so meaningful.
Letting go doesn’t mean what you had never happened.
Letting go doesn’t mean it’s lost forever.
Letting go doesn’t mean you don’t care anymore.
Letting go doesn’t mean you are strong.
Letting go doesn’t mean you’ve lost.
Letting go means trusting God with everything in you.
Letting go means surrendering your life once again.
Letting go reassures He is in complete control.
Letting go reassures He is your ultimate comfort and healer.
Letting go reassures He has already won.
He has already won.
You have already won.
In this time of letting go, don’t be cast down, don’t be hopeless. You have Jesus. You have everything you need, right now. Though it’s hard and people may not understand, though you may not understand, continue to trust Him and continue to let go.
Let’s keep walking with God. Let’s keep going where He leads. Let’s keep being obedient, even in the hard times. Let’s keep giving all we have.
