Sometimes when I 'let go' of things that are weighing my mind and heart down, and give them to God, it seems like I'm not doing enough... that it's a cop out, that I should be trying harder to FIX it! It seems almost too easy to just ... let it go.
Other times, that 'letting it go' is the hardest thing that I do.
It almost seems like a paradox.
Definition of paradox online... "An argument that produces an inconsistency, typically within logic or common sense."
That's it, that's the problem, every time! When my human logic kicks in on a problem, but my heart and faith say 'no... Trust God, let Him have this'... it becomes a paradox.
It was never meant to be a paradox. His word is clear. "Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart, and lean not to your own understanding".
My logical common sense desire to fix a problem often IS the problem!
It's me that up-ends God's apple cart, trying to get to the solution... my way.
Sometimes the letting go is harder for me than the holding on...
Why is that?
It's because it's me... learning that it's really Him.
It's because 'His ways are not my ways'. It's because He is God and He said so! The rules that work for my life and yours say that we are to 'let go' and trust Him with all of it. He made the rules and He knows that they work, He also made us, and understands that we need Him. We are so limited in our abilities and our vision, but God isn't.
Creator and created...
