My post this week on Philstar.com is all about letting go and letting God.
I was waxing sentimental again while writing it, because I know I still have a LOT to learn about being the intentional parent I want to be. Here’s part of my post:
Every day, I realize more and more the importance of letting go, especially if you are a parent. As a self-confessed “control freak,” this is certainly not something that’s easy for me to do. Letting go and letting things “just be” are not actions that I can easily take.
However, being on bed rest for over a month now has made me realize that letting go and “letting God” is part of our daily life as parents, or at least it should be.
Letting go and letting God
I believe that God has a purpose for me being on bed rest, although admittedly, it has been very challenging for someone like me, who’s always “on the go.” I must admit that I’ve found myself complaining a lot and “cheating” sometimes, i.e. not resting as much as I’m supposed to.
Still, I know that letting go and letting God take over the aspects of my life that I am reluctant to give up will only do me good, and so I must do just that. As I share with you my realizations today, I encourage you to do the same – to relinquish control over your life and just let God take over.
