Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. A couple of weeks ago in April, we had a beautiful snowfall. It wasn’t unexpected, as it was the buzz conversation a few days leading up to it. Yet, even with warning and preparation, there seemed to be an unwillingness to embrace it. Afterall, spring has sprung in this part of the United States and snow is supposed to be in our past. Once we’ve had some warm sunny weather, our expectations of snow are for the following year. Many gave not only their opinions of the snow, but allowed this unwanted event to shape their entire day. Here’s the thing, though, we don’t control the weather, do we?
And it’s not just weather we don’t and can’t control. We also don’t control our bosses, neighbors, business owners, friends, or family members. So, we have a choice – we can let go of what we cannot control or we can hang on, stew in it, and suffer the consequences. Trying to control situations of which we have no influence or authority can only harm us, physically, emotionally, mentally and can even breakdown relationships. None of us want those kinds of consequences.
You may need to explore this more on your own, or maybe with professional guidance, but what could it look like to let go of things we can’t control? What we can know for sure is that Scripture teaches us to let go. Psalm 46:10 says, “Surrender your anxiety. Be still and realize that I am God. I am God above all the nations and I am exalted throughout the whole earth.”
What a wonderful result when we let go of our anxieties and concerns. We realize we cannot control the world and people around us. We recognize our God who rules the nations, the earth, and our own little piece of the world, including the weather. Celebrate the freedom of letting go! Live the way you want to be remembered.
