For the past couple of weeks, I have been like the chicken with no head, running to and fro but not really getting anywhere and barely getting anything done. I’ve been moody and morose. I knew full well what was bothering me but knowing what the matter is doesn’t change a thing when there is absolutely NOTHING you can do about it.
When you come to the end of your rope and you know you’ve done all you can- it’s over. Stop trying. Accept it! And let go! Just let – it – go! Yes, I know that’s easier said then done, especially If you’re as stubborn as I am. You keep hanging onto that rope in spite of feeling anxious, desperate and defeated, in spite of the rope burns on your hands. But there is another way. Give it to God. Let His words encourage, inspire and refresh your spirit.

I'd like to share this verse which is a huge encouragement to me…
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Hi Sheryl, that is one of my favorite verses! I can't believe I forgot to include it. Thanks for the reminder.
I love you pure honest simplicity. You are right it's not as easy as just saying it. But, in time all things heal if we let them and let God. Love your post.
