THERE IS POWER IN LETTING GO

Recently I had been struggling with letting go of a situation that was happening in my life. It was repercussions from not handling my responsibilities while suffering in active addiction.

I tried unsuccessfully, everything under the sun to control and manipulate the outcome of said situation. The only thing that came out of that was me being stressed out, angry and resentful. Because I was placing unrealistic expectations on myself. Because I was trying to out think the problem. Because I was looking for instant gratification.

It took me some time to finally realize that I was caught up in a cycle of insanity. I was doing the same thing expecting different results without the use of any mind or mood altering substance. I had to take a hard long look at my behavior patterns. It was an awakening that led me to finally surrender.

Once I was able to say I surrender and it is what it is. I was able to let it go. I had to start looking past the problem. I had to stop trying to fix something that was not broke. A funny thing happened once I was able to do that. I felt lighter. Literally.  I felt the weight of all that stress, worry, anger and aggravation lift off me. It was an awakening that led me to a sense of freedom.

I am beginning to understand that there is a certain power in letting go. I cannot fix, manipulate, con, go around, under or over. I have to be patient and work through. I have to understand that I have no control over certain situations and that even the worse situations eventually will pass.

Peace and Blessings

  1. Good Morning Eric.
    That is another growth experience when we realize we cannot do everything on our own. Once we realize and admit that fact, and quit struggling through it over and over, we can allow God into the situation, and He will direct us and do what we cannot.
    A great Scripture verse of truth is found in 1 Corinthians 10:13.

    Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭10‬:‭13‬ GNB)

    Congratulations again on the changes and successes you have had thus far. The future will be amazing for you Eric, and inspiring for others, as you move forward following God’s leading.

    God’s Blessings and Strength.

    George
