Letting go of the wheel

It’s been a while. I haven’t posted in months. Not to say that I’ve had nothing to write about, let’s just say I was awaiting the outcome of an event before I put finger to smart phone keypad!!

The thing is, the event is now over, it didnt work out how I wanted it to and I’ve spent the last week devastated, defeated and angry at God, the world and myself!

So, what changed? Well, I realised that I’d been planting my Faith in the wrong places. My Faith was in the plans I made, the people who said it would work, the “signs” I was on the right path….everywhere but God. So when these events/plans failed, my Faith went with them. I was left empty and broken.

Today, I made the decision to consciously root my Faith in Christ. To bring all my desires back to the real source. It’s no longer about what I can do, its who He is! I’ve let go of the wheel and taken the back seat, Jesus is in control.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a work in progress. I catch myself back seat driving every now and again but I cant go back to who I was. God said that He’s got this…all I have to do is believe….right?

  1. It’s good to have you back. I don’t know you well and I am happy to have you back, can you imagine how God is feeling right now? He knows that you are angry, but he is so happy that you are back to writing about him. Sometimes, God permits these things to happen for a reason. You will be more than ok, he will never leave you or forsake you. Sending you love today.
