He said, “Listen, all you people of
Judah and Jerusalem! Listen,
King Jehoshaphat! This is what
the Lord says: Do not be afraid!
Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army,
for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
2 Chronicles 20:15

It is not yours, but God’s.

Whatever I battle am facing today does not belong to me.  It belongs to God and he can handle it.

I have a tendency to think that I need to FIX things, but the truth of the matter is, I don’t.  He never asked me to fix it, he asked me to let him handle it.  As I get older I am finding that the more I try to fix it, the more I mess it up.

The more I try to handle things, the more I end up holding a broken handle.

The more I try to balance, juggle and maneuver all the things in my life, the more I find I am standing in a puddle of stuff.

Instead of trying to do it myself, I think I’ll try to let go.

I think I’ll let him handle it.

I think…he’s got this.  His shoulders are big enough, wide enough and strong enough.

So why do I bother?

Lord, today I let it go.  The things I said that I wish I hadn’t said, I ask for forgiveness – from you and the person to whom I spoke.  The balls I dropped, well, I should have never had them in the first place.  The broken handle I am holding today…I am letting it go.  You can glue and mold it back together in a way that I never could.  Thank you for the grace and the love and the peace that only you can give.

What is on your mind today?
What is troubling you?
Whatever it is…he can handle it,
you just have to let it go.
There is peace and victory in the letting go.
