Accessing The Power

“They that hope in God will renew their strength, they will soar as with eagles’ wings; they will run and not grow weary, walk and not grow faint.”

Tired of trying to do it all yourself?

When I look back on my life I see that I am most happy when I have surrendered to a Power greater than myself, when I have stopped trying to control my life or someone else’s. I quickly get insane when I try to control or when I cling to another. When I let go and allow a Power greater than myself to take care of that person I’m worried about, or those things within my own life about which I’m concerned, then life takes on a much more peaceful feel.

So how can I let go? How can I surrender? Ask this Power to direct my thinking. Talk out my actions and motivations with trusted people. Then simply just put one foot in front of the other and do the next right thing. That usually does it for me.

It is when I am doing these things that my energy begins to increase and I find myself a much happier person, running and not growing weary!

    Letting go is so liberating, so why is it so difficult? Sometimes when I am so wrapped up in the what ifs, in the shoulda’s and coulda’s in the drama, in trying to fix it, I forget to ask. When I am centered in my faith, even the mist of turmoil I know I only need to let go, to ask and most importantly to listen, and the answer will be given. The holidays are a particularly difficult time for many me included. Thank you for reminding how to find the peace and spirit within.
