I am training myself to let go. It’s a tough thing to learn. Hardest is knowing exactly what to let go of, when to let it go and… how much and how fast. In this process, I know there is still much for me to do but I must resist the urge to justify all that I do to make myself still feel and look important to others. I have to balance that with also being sure that I still am doing the important work the Lord has put before me.
So what is the answer? As always, by making sure God is directing my every thought, action and motive, I can rest knowing that I am doing exactly what He requires… when He requires it to be done… and how much. I am always best served when I am marking my time and being absolutely sure my timetable still lines up with His. I never want to be ahead of His timing. But being behind it never works out so well, either. Being in step each step of the way seems the only prudent and wise manner in which to walk with Him. Otherwise, well… things can get precarious in a hurry. It’s just a matter of taking a small amount of my time to stop, wait and be sure of the direction in which He goes… then making sure we’re moving ONLY when He’s prepared and ready to move.

13 bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
