ON BEING REAL


I am an organized person and one of the worst things for me is not having everything in order. But lately I’ve been learning about the beauty of spontaneity. The beauty that comes from trusting God and letting Him lead. Here’s an excerpt from a journal post I recently wrote:

Lord, I wish I could say that I have it all together but the truth is I honestly don’t. My mind’s all over the place, I don’t know what my future holds and I’m kinda scared. I feel like I’m in over my head but Lord help me to trust You. To surrender my life to You and love You harder than I have before.

I believe that this season I’m in is one of trusting God. One of fully surrendering to God and letting Him lead me on. The picture of trusting God to me looks like when a little child holds on tightly to their father’s giant finger with their tiny hand and allows him to lead. When a child trusts their father so much that they are not afraid of what’s ahead, because they know that the father will lead them.

Here are a few lyrics from the song Letting Go by Steffany Gretzinger. A song that illustrated this concept of trust and surrender beautifully.:

“You’ve brought me to the end of myself

This has been the longest road

Just when my hallelujah was tired

You gave me a new song
I’m letting go

I’m letting go

I’m letting go

Falling into You”

Life is not all sunshine and rainbows and sometimes life can be terrible and you may feel like there’s no hope. This year I’m going to get gut level honest here. I’m going to be real and transparent, in the hope that someone reading this will know that they are not alone, that there is someone who they can relate to.
