LET IT GO..............

We just returned from West Lafayette, Indiana, where I was privileged to have a front row seat at the most entertaining and heart warming concert!  It was in the living room of my Son and Daughter-in-Love's home, where our two year old granddaughter, Leighton was performing her debut of  "LET IT GO".

Leighton's concert wardrobe was given to her by friends, Val and Joy for her Birthday.   As you can see in the video, she was having a bit of a wardrobe malfunction, which her daddy was quick to assist her with.   As I sat listening to her very dramatic and entertaining rendition of LET IT GO, I heard through my heart's ear, Jesus say, "LET IT GO, Debbie."    I knew exactly what Jesus was saying.............I was holding on to things that I had no control over..........things that I couldn't do anything about.  Things that were heavy on my heart and I just simply needed to LET THEM GO! 

Every day there are things in our lives that we tend to allow to get us down. Some things we can change, but some things we just simply have to let go of,  into the hands of our loving Heavenly Father, that know what to do with them, once we let go of them.

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 - Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not to your own understanding.  In all of your ways acknowledge Him (LET IT GO) and He will direct your path.

I am once again, in AWE of the faithfulness of God!

When  the burden is to heavy to carry on our own,  LET IT GO!

I love the Message translation of Matthew 11:30 "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Sitting on the front row of my little 2 year old Granddaughter's concert of LET IT GO, I was reminded, that I didn't have to carry the burden any longer, I could LET IT GO into the hands of Jesus, and I could trust Him to figure it out for me.........I'm learning to live freely and lightly.
