EMBRACING TRUST: LETTING GO AND LETTING GOD TAKE THE LEAD

TMGM Image 3Letting go of control—it’s been a rollercoaster of a journey for me, and I’m here to share the twists and turns. So, let’s dive into the pages of my personal journal as I unravel the transformative power of trusting in God’s plan.

  1. Confronting the Urge for Control:
    • Honest Confession: Okay, let’s start with a truth bomb—I hate feeling out of control. Seriously, it’s like a thorn in my side. I crave knowing what’s up and how to make things go my way. But last year, life threw me a curveball, and I found myself teetering on the edge of chaos. That’s when God whispered those two powerful words: “Trust me.”
    • Conditional Trust: At first, I was all, “Of course, I trust You, God!” But then He hit me with the real talk—was my trust truly unconditional? Turns out, I was only handing over the reins for the stuff I couldn’t handle. Real trust? That’s a whole different ball game.
  2. Navigating ADHD and Control:
    • Unique Challenges: Now, throw ADHD into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a party. Controlling every little detail feels like a lifeline amidst the whirlwind of thoughts and emotions. But through the chaos, I’ve learned that God’s got this—even when my brain feels like it’s running a marathon.
    • Learning to Trust: It hasn’t been easy, but trusting in God’s plan has been my saving grace. His presence in the midst of ADHD-induced mayhem brings a peace that surpasses understanding. It’s like He’s saying, “Hey, I’ve got you, even when your thoughts are doing the cha-cha.”
  3. Embracing God’s Plan:
    • Personal Growth: Letting go of control? It’s been one heck of a growth spurt. Surrendering to God’s will has stretched me in ways I never imagined. But you know what? It’s also brought me closer to Him. Trusting Him completely has been my lifeline in the storm, guiding me through the ups and downs with unwavering love.
    • Challenge to Readers: So, here’s my challenge to you, dear reader—ditch the control freak tendencies and let God take the wheel. Trust me, I know it’s scary, but it’s also incredibly freeing. Embrace the “ME” God made you to be, flaws and all, and watch as He turns your mess into something beautiful.

As I close this chapter of my journal, I’m reminded that letting go and letting God isn’t just a catchy phrase—it’s a way of life. So, here’s to embracing the wild ride, trusting in His plan, and discovering the beauty in surrender. After all, the best stories often begin when we relinquish control and let God write the next chapter.
