Let Go and Grow

If you are in control of your life, you are missing much of what the Lord would like to help you experience. Whether it is through a calling (you or your spouse) or an unexpected stressful event or something else, He will help you grow in more ways than you can imagine - if you are willing to give up control of your life.

Now I know there are different degrees of control and different areas of control - and that being in control of what you can and should control is a great thing, but some of my greatest growth has come from things that were not within my control.

We just made the decision to buy a new home while keeping our current one to be rented out. I got my confirmation with an image of getting on a roller coaster but realizing that it is the right one to be on.

I naturally would want to shrink and not take this risk. Yet I feel it is the right thing to do for our family.

Thanks so much for your unceasing posts on good and uplifting things.

Aww, do I have to?! lol

Thanks for helping me take baby steps toward letting go of those things I cannot control.

Thank you, Rich. I appreciate it.

You, too, babe.

Anon, thanks for the laugh - even if you weren't attempting to be humorous. :-)
