“Don’t be scared to let go; God has better plans for you” Jonin Marie Gargoles

Sometimes life can throw you a heavy stone and you have no choice but to let it go.

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you have no other choice but to let it go past you. You might want to take control of the situation, but no matter how hard or how many times you try, life just doesn’t add up the way you want it to.

Over the years, I have learned to let go of what I can’t control, such as relationships, jobs, friendships, etc. That’s not to say that it gets any easier as time goes on, but God does equip me with the tools that I need in that season. In some seasons, I can get through a storm without hesitation, and in other sessions, such as the one I’m currently in, I find it hard to get through a single day.

Last year, I was employed, healing myself from a breakup, got a new home, and made some new friends. Life was great, with the exception of a few things, but I was enjoying life, and most importantly, my relationship with God was growing. Fast forward a few months to the present, and I’m now unemployed, can hardly pay bills, have lost some friends, and I find myself in a state of depression and anxiety.
However, this doesn’t define me, nor do I let it overcome me, because I know that this is a temporary season and I’ve been in these situations before. And God will put you in situations you’ve been in before to see if you can handle them, and He will never give you more or less than you can handle. So I know that I’ll find work again in my favorite industry and I’ll be able to pay my bills, even if it may take awhile. As for my broken friendships, I sincerely love them, but I have to let go of the peer pressure and body shaming. However, due to the circumstances that came into my life, I became stronger and better. I don’t know what’s going to happen. None of us do. Only God knows. But praying and accepting things as they are can help with going through your season.

We have to understand that we cannot rely on our own understanding, but rather put our entire trust and faith in Him. Because His plan is greater than yours, He will guide you through your cave, the storm, and the battlefield to where you need to be. So let it go. Let go of that job you don’t like. Let go of that person that is causing you pain. Let go of that friendship that is toxic. Let go of the addictive behaviors. Let go of the high expectations you have for yourself. Let go of that fear. Let go because you need to and you know that God will catch you and be right there with you.
