Recall a time in your life where you desperately wanted something to happen… Can you think of one? Perhaps you thought of more than one. With that time in mind were you trying to, in your own power, make things work out the way you wanted them to?
Did you want it so badly￼￼, that it was almost as if you were forcing a thing to happen? But the harder you tried, and the more upset you got, and the more frustrated you became, it seemed that what you desired most seemed to move further and further out of reach￼￼?
Close your eyes… in the moments when you paused, took a step back, and tried to see things from a wider lens, did you see that you were not the only factor in the equation?
Perhaps you even realized, although quite obvious, that others are involved and their input, choices, and decisions are necessary and critical inputs.
However, these are the inputs you have no control over. These inputs, in fact, made you acknowledge that you can only do so much.
Eventually, and some of us get there and some of us don’t - and sometimes it depends on the situation- but eventually you decide to sit back, relax and let God.
You make a conscious decision not to let your circumstance regarding the thing you want so badly get you down any longer. You make a conscious decision to relax, breathe, and drop your heavy pack because there’s nothing you can do… on your own.￼￼
In my experience, in the times that I relaxed, recognized, and remembered that I need to rely on God and His Holy Spirt living in me and that I need to demonstrate patience, because I cannot force things to happen, it was in those moments that things turned around for my good. ￼
I’m excited to be able to offer this title again. My hope is that it will encourage you. Remembering the times I share in the book, encourages me to remember to relax and let God now. Sometimes the timing isn’t quite right.
Take me back to my beautiful dream. My beautiful, peaceful dream.
I rarely remember my dreams after I wake up. How about you? One of my daughters does and she remembers them in great detail and she has them often.
I once heard that it’s important to write down dreams you can remember …something to do with augmenting brain function.
Anyhow, sometimes I can get back to where I was in a dream and keep dreaming…not always, but sometimes.
My most recent memorable dream was definitely “get back in” worthy, not because I had to get back in to run from or successfully defeat a bad guy, rather because it was calm. It was peaceful. I woke up smiling and the muscles in my neck and upper back were relaxed…ahhh. Snooze time is over and now it’s time to get up.
