Letting Go.

Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go

 


Letting go. Something I am completely terrible at. Being a control freak, I have a really hard time just letting go, or "letting God." I tend to want to know how, when, where and why everything will happen. If things do not go as planned, I can get pretty anxious. So, overall, I suck at letting go.

Since I met Jesus, the whole letting go thing has been a lot easier for me. Although learning to trust Him has not been easy, it very quickly relieves the anxiety I feel about not being in control of things, and allows me to live more freely. Words cannot explain how much God has worked in this area of my life. My anxieties surrounding control have become SO much better in the past year and a half or so, although it is still a work in progress. 



AND, I am beyond excited to announce that Matt and I are starting a couples blog. This will be a place for us to share our experiences as we move to Missouri together. It will also be a faith-based blog that details our walk with Christ as a couple, but we will also offer practical advice with the hopes that we will reach couples going through similar situations. Stay tuned!

  3. Wow, I just posted about this a few days ago Cassie! I think it is crazy how there is a group of us bloggers all going through the same things, it's totally God! Learning to trust Him has not been a simple process, but it is crazy for me to look back on this last year and a half of my life and see how far I have come with giving it all up to Him. I love that I am able to just relax and let Him handle it, but sometimes I struggle with not having a plan written down in front of me. I'm a work on progress too, but thankfully neither of us are where we used to be! That's one of my favorite quotes by Joyce Meyer haha. Love you girl! So awesome you and Matt are starting a blog in your guys walk with Christ! Can't wait to read!!
