Letting Go Part 1

Leave a comment

let.it.goYou can choose to let your mistakes define you, or you can choose to let it go, move on, and leave the past in the past.

This is where the devil and his lies come in. You see, he wants us to believe that we are not good enough, that we don’t have what it takes, that we are insignificant, but that is NOT TRUE!

He wants us to pretend, he wants us to not be genuine, he wants us living a life hidden behind a mask, disguising who we really are. He wants us to struggle with negative feelings of worry, guilt, doubt, and fear.

BUT we don’t have to be afraid anymore about feeling we are not good enough, we don’t have to be afraid anymore about disappointing others – we just need to let go of those thoughts that are holding us back from our full potential! Those thoughts are only tearing us down, and making us ashamed and afraid. We don’t need that kind of negativity in our lives.

Instead of holding on to lies, I pray you would let go and hold on to who you are in Christ! You are forgiven, accepted, redeemed, loved, significant, valued, good enough, worthy, beautiful, a masterpiece, irreplaceable… I could go on and on about all your positive aspects! Keep being who you really are! It matters, trust me!

I believe part of my calling is to passionately serve, comfort, and encourage others faithfully with pure humility and honest compassion to help them realize the never-ending love and true value God has for them. I want to reach out to the ones who are afraid, lost, lonely, and hurting with the unconditional love of God. I want to empathize with their struggles, and I just want to show them the healing love Jesus has for those with damaged emotions. I haven’t quite discovered what my purpose is, as in what I will actually do with my life once I finish school as far as what career to get into or anything, but I do know that if I walk by faith and not by sight, God will guide me where He wants me to be.... it’s so easy to say that, now I just wish I would actually trust that it’s going to happen… A bit about what I do is I enjoy reading and studying the Bible, doing devotionals, jotting down stuff in my prayer journal, hanging out with my awesome family and friends, being involved in small groups, writing encouraging notes to people, running, and playing tennis! My goal is to finish strong in this race called life, making a difference for Christ and living out the life He has called me to live, by loving God with all my heart, soul, strength, and mind, and loving others with the same love God has for me. My life is a continual work in progress, and I will continue to make a lot of mistakes. My hope is that I would learn from my past and press on, knowing that in my weaknesses, Christ is strong. I do not want my life to be centered on what I cannot do. I want my life centered on how God can use me the way I am - struggles, insecurities, failures, and all - and how that can be used to glorify Him! My hope is to inspire a few others to realize their place in this world and see their true identity in Christ!
