Let go

Let go and let God

Change is exhausting! Everything has to happen in its own time and  in its own way. Worrying about what is not working or isn't happening in our own time frame, isn't going to change anything. Worrying will only make you feel worse. We all have free will and where there is a will there is a way. This is true in our own lives as well as in the lives of those around us. There are times when we are frustrated with ourselves or others over choices that are made or not made. Frustration leads to anger and resentment and creates pain. Do what you can do for yourself and for others and then simply let go of what you have no control over. As hard as it may seem, ultimately, if you are frustrated, then, you are frustrated. It is your choice to be frustrated, you can choose to continue to feel that way or you can let go, and for me, let God. In a situation where change is not happening fast enough or there are setbacks, the only choice you have is whether you react or respond. Reacting is your gut reaction without thought (usually this is NOT a good choice, for me, it often makes matters worse). Responding is a much healthier choice, stop, take a breath, think, and offer yourself a kind thought of the person you are or the person with whom you are frustrated. Then, and only then, respond, if what you have to say will bring peace. When it  involves someone you love who suffers with addiction, that can become extremely difficult because you want to change how they feel, change how they see things, change the pain and discomfort that they feel, and change the pain you feel seeing them in pain. Try to love and support (not enable) them as much as possible so that someday they may be able to find the strength from within that comes from the understanding that with God, all things are possible. God is and always will be THE higher power of loving energy that surrounds us all each and every moment of each and every day. No matter what your religious tradition, God is for you, Loving positive energy is for you, and for me. Let go of the guilt, let go of the pain, let go of the fear, let go of the anger and let go of the negative energies. We have but one life and one vessel to hold that life energy. Let go the shame to make room for the loving energies that the Divine wants so desperately to fill your soul with.

wow, what an incredible sight to wake up to, God IS good

May the peace and loving energy of the one who was, who, is and who will always be
with you if you simply let go and let God.
Prayers that you will feel God blessings holding you close, forever and for always
Much love, Kristyn
