Just Let Go

Inspiration comes from many places, but I have found that music speaks to me more often than anything else.  When I was on my own, living alone for the first time in my life, many times I was so fearful, and felt so broken, yet music could soothe my spirit and renew my strength.  It's not just the tune, though I appreciate many styles, but it's the lyrics that reach through to grab my attention.

I've recently become familiar with a musical trio going by the name of "Barlow Girl".  They reached me today with the following lyrics:

What is this doubt in me
Convincing me to fear the unknown,
When all along You've shown
Your plans are better than my own?

This week has been a whirlwind of making plans, having those plans change, trying to adjust, and then having those plans change again.  This morning I was in the middle of a very challenging dilemma, and I actually prayed.  (I do that far less than I know I should.)

In just a few hours, God answered in a way that I would not have expected, so there's peace in my household, and in my heart, once again.  Why, oh why, should I be surprised!  Way too often, I try to figure things out on my own, until I get to the point where I just can't do it, at which point, I ask God for help.  Such foolishness! Why not let go much sooner, to even out all those bumps in my life?  In the same song, Barlow Girl says, "And I know I won't make it if I do this all alone".  That's my reminder for today, that I don't need to do it all alone.  The Creator of the universe, the Creator of me, is eagerly waiting for me to call.
