Friday's Favorite

The day has gotten away from me and I almost forgot to post! This quote is one that I just read in my daily email of inspirational quotes, so I can't claim it as an old favorite. But it is a NEW favorite!
To hold, you must first open your hand. Let go.
-Tao Te Ching
Let Go. Let God.

Let go and let God. I like that one best.

It's something I'm being reminded of...that when I hold on to something, anything, too tightly...I take away God's ability to do what He does best.

But sometimes, when we let the things we're holding on to go...God steps in and takes care of it all, and hands over what it is we really need. Whether that's a better version of what we had, or something we never even dared dream of.

Life is hard, by it's very nature. It's painful, by it's very design. But sometimes the only way to get to the amazing is to walk straight through the pain.

Letting go can be terrifying. I mentioned to a girlfriend recently that change is on the horizon, and I can't see where I'm going.

I even wrote a post about it but it is sitting in drafts.

Maybe one day it will get posted. Or maybe not.
