Let Go, and Let God
Moment of transparency
I feel like I’m at a place where I can finally start to accept the lessons of life and grow from them instead of trying to figure out why it didn’t work out. For instance, although I’m an extremely friendly and loving person, I don’t connect with everyone on a level where I want to take it past surface level. Now because I’m this way, I find myself placing a lot of expectations on the others in my life without even knowing it.
Typically when someone I Love hurts me, betray my trust, or disappoint me in any way, I find myself saying that I could never trust that person again. See it wasn’t until now that I was able to see the beauty in no longer putting my trust in these individuals and the beauty in them letting me down. I believe God allows others to fail us in a magnitude of different ways so He can remind us that we shouldn’t be putting our trust in anyone but Him in the first place. When we put our trust in others, they will inevitably fail us even if it’s not in their intentions, but when we put our trust in God, He always delivers even if we don’t understand at the time.
I do believe it is ok to have those individuals that we can call on you can rely on in most cases, but when it gets to the point that they are your everything and go to in every difficult situation, I think then is when they become to take the place in your life where God should be and that’s first place.
I said all of this to say, today I want to release the heartache and high expectations that I put on others to do and say the things I believe I need from them. I want to allow others a chance to mess up, grow from it, and lean on God to help me overcome that heartbreak. I know this will be easier said than done, but I am committed to having more faith in God to protect me at all costs and understanding more that any storms whether through relationships or not were truly for my good and meant to shape me into the person I was created to be. I’m choosing to truly “Let Go, and Let God.” I pray for my strength in this every day because this is not an easy task At all!!🙏🏽
