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.
