Let it go. The disturbances in my spirit brought on by resistance to people, places and things I have no control over, are futility. The only recourse I have, with effect, is to give it to God.
The only person I can change is me, the only place I can change is where I choose to be, the only thing I can change is how I see life.
I believe; "Everything is as it should be right at this moment." Everything maybe except my acceptance of it all. It's the things I cannot accept that cause discord and malcontent in my spirit. I have to believe that in every personal failure, I am closer to success. I must hang on to my enthusiasm for life and hope.
If I am to TRUST God and believe he is in control, to the extent that I let go, I must let go of it all. Let go of the thoughts that I can change situations and people that are disturbing. Let go of the idea that my worry will add a day to my life or a dollar to my bank account. Let go of the idea that anyone else is wrong. Let go of the idea that I know what is best for me or anyone else.
Gratitude is the only way to have peace in this life. Today, right this minute, I am so grateful and thankful for my health, my family, my job, a beautiful place to live, hope for a future, a hot shower, legs that hold me up, eyes to see and ears to hear. Mostly I am so grateful for faith in a power greater than myself, and a relationship with him.
Fantasizing the freedom to "Let go and let God handle what I cannot."
