Celebrating Change: Letting Go and Letting God — 10 Comments

  1. What a beautiful space! I look forward to reading your words again. I’ve been on a long hiatus, and Heather and Em recently redesigned my site, but I’m struggling to find my voice. I hope to again soon. Blessings!

    • I’ve always been a terribly impatient person because I never wanted to be behind. I’ve learned that when God tells me to do something, it doesn’t mean I should have had it done yesterday. It means He’s going to take me there, help me do it. I battled the voice that tried to make me feel behind because I didn’t have the voice either – but I’ve come to recognize the flow and ebb – and that one day, He would bring the tide in and the words would come. Praying grace in the wait and rejoicing without seeing yet that the words will come for you Barbie!!! Maybe you will join me for Remember Me Mondays – it’s a project without a linky – but writers and friends who don’t write can comment or put link in the comments. It’s going to be an opportunity to Remember what God has done for us! Thanks for coming by and encouraging me! You’ve blessed me!

    • Heather did a wonderful job designing the website! Thanks so much for coming by!

  2. Congratulations! I love your blue cotton memory flower look! Great post!
    New seasons are always so exciting & yes just a little daunting at the same time 😉

    You’re most welcome to join me in a cuppa at Tea With Jennifer,
    Bless you,

    • Thanks, Jennifer, for the invite! I will stop by! New things are my uncomfortable zone, but God seems to have been telling me for a forever time that I need to expect uncomfortable – because the work He’s doing in me takes me from new to new to new! Thanks for coming by! ~ Maryleigh

  3. Congratulations on this new space and in this new season!

    When my son turned 18, he tested my husband and I quite a bit. One particular night he purposely broke curfew, but I remembered the words of a Pastor who said to me, “Karen, you raised him up in the fear and admonition of the Lord for 18 years, now you need to let Him go and let God DO.” As hard as it was, those were some of the most freeing words ever spoken to me. In the process, I learned that saying less accomplished so much more! I also saw the fruit of raising my son in a Godly house, because as I “let him go”, he started making his own responsible decisions. Our season of rebellion was short, and my relationship with my son grew into one of mutual respect.

    Thanks for sharing your insights here.

    • Karen, Thank you for sharing your experience – and wisdom, for me and other readers. The letting go between moms and sons can be a tricky launch – some easier than others. Yes – the sooner you let go, the quicker they return – it may be a new balance, a new communication, with healthy boundaries, but I think that is the way it is supposed to be. I’m so blessed yous topped by! Thank you!

  4. I loved your post. Thank you for sharing it with Grace & Truth Link-Up. Congratulations on letting go. My favorite sentence was – “trusting God enough to coach my sons through the life-story He has designed. He can do more, achieve more than I ever did or could in my hands-on season. Oh, how we need to let go and trust God. I will be pondering what this looks like tomorrow as I drive 10 hours to be back with my daughter. Maree

    • Maree, I hope your long drive was full of awesome time with God. I know the long drives back to where I grew up – when I invite Him, the drive ends up being spiritually refreshing and so insightful! Especially when I’m by myself. Thanks so much for coming by and celebrating with me! I love the messages your team has in your link up!~ Maryleigh
