Letting go is hard. Especially when you don't want to.
Living is hard. Especially when it means all you get is a step-by-step view and not a glimpse at the glories He is revealing in you and around you.
But that's life.
Letting go and living in hard places.
The hard places grow you. They teach you to be thankful, to love, to sacrifice, to empty yourself, to pray, to look around, to breathe. They teach you to laugh a little longer, cry a little harder, sing a little louder, and smile a whole lot more. They show you that life is not about you (I know, this one hurts so much), that Jesus will transform your life, and His arms of grace will hold you still.
They teach you that seasons come and go. There will be days when you're lonely and days your heart is filled to overflowing and that either way we can choose to be thankful and joyful in our Savior because circumstances do not determine who He is and they definitely don't sway Him or change Him. Hallelujah! This is cause for praise.
Life is hard and letting go is hard, but if He's beckoning you to let go today, do it. He only has your best in mind and what will bring the most glory to His name. He'll take care of you. Don't worry your pretty little head. Rest, child, in the arms of the God who loves you.
