Teach them to do everything I have commanded you. "And remember that I am always with you until the end of time."
Matthew 28:20 (GWT)
I am grateful for my faith, even when its lessons are beyond my control; even when it feels that my entire life is beyond my control.
Control is the lesson.
Not taking it, but rather, letting it go. This is not a lesson I like.
As Karen Clark Sheard sings “God is here” as I am reminded that “HERE” is not a place of which I am particularly fond. (That’s not what she means when she’s singing, but I bring my baggage to the listening. It is what it is…)
A wise dear friend (or so I hope) challenged me to write on this…
“Where we’ve been is not where we are, and where we are is not where we’ll be…”
What is clear during this lesson is this….wherever I am right now, wherever HERE is, this is not my final destination. I don’t like it, but it’s not my endpoint.
I am quietly, soberly, losing my mind.
I had to stop writing because I was getting caught up in the words. If I am going to surrender, I just have to do it. Let go. Stop.
