Let go and let God is my theme for Thankful Thursday.

This is very hard for me to do.

What is the hardest for me to do. is let go of control.
I need to learn everything needed to make an educated choice. But on some things I jump in head first and suffer the consequence's. I am not worried about me,
or what is thrown my way.
I worry how my choice will affect others around me.
If I have no control of the outcome.
I can still try to make choices to try to change the out come.
But I have learn I just delay the inevitable.
It is hard to surrender your will.
And have faith that what is meant to be is for the good.
Like the saying.
You have to believe that everything happens for a reason.

My thankful list is so long, but I will only post the top 3.
The sun was shining today
I was able to work in the garden a bit.
I am very thankful for my family and friends like you.

Hi Grammy, I always love reading your "Thankful Thursdays" posts...I agree that everything happens for a reason.

Hope you had a great week/weekend.

We are glad to be home.. It was a wonderful trip --just getting to see my son and family. BUT--the weather was horrible. Oh Well!!!!

I'm going to check through some of your older blog posts.

Such nice blessings.

Wendy said...

Hi Grammy - well you sound just like me! I do the exact same as you. The needing to know everything and the control thing. Not about me, but about those around me. No wonder we're good blogger friends.

I also love your Thankful Thursday posts. Will have to join in on a Thursday. I don't seem to be organized enough to remember.

I am thankful for the sunshine today too and for the wonderful blogging community we belong to.
Hugs, my friend

Hi E.
come stai ?
I'm very well !
Finalmente oggi, sono riuscita a ricollegarmi con il tuo blog, perchè ultimamente quando tentavo di collegarmi al tuo sito il computer si bloccava completamente ed ero costretta a spegnerlo !
La pirmavera ancora in Italia non riesce ad arrivare...

Debra said...

Genejosh said...

Letting go is one of my biggest struggles...I guess I have always liked the illusion of control! Happy TT friend!

You have a beautiful heart.

I especially liked what you said, "The sun was shining today"

Not everyone can appreciate this and I'm glad that you see the beauty of every day.


iLoveYou, my dear sister in CHRIST!

Definitely LET GOD!

Letting go of controll is one thing that I struggle with. I try to remember that God is in controll and things happen for a reason I believe it is when I was the unhappiest when I wanted all control and when we let go he grants our happiness

Laurie Ann said...

Great list of thanks! And surrender is something I struggle with sometimes, too. I'm learning to lean...Happy Thankful Thursday!

Jennifer said...

Great post! I am right there with you on letting go and letting God. It is a very difficult thing for someone who loves to be in control. Things happen sooner and turn out so much better when I let go of the reins and let God do it.

Happy TT!

Angela said...

I was greatly blessed by your post. I pray "let go and let God each day,,

Heather@Mommymonk said...

Yep - letting go and Letting God is not always easy, but definitely worthwhile. He usually has a better plan than we could have even imagined, isn't that true?

Bonnie said...

Control is an issue for me, too. It's hard to just hang onto the robe of God and let Him handle it all... Thank you for your transparency! Blessings.

Zaroga said...

Lovely post, Grammy. Letting go is hard... I've truly found that out.

Carla said...

Why is 'letting God' so hard?
We little humans just 'think' we have control, letting go is all God wants!!
Thank God for your sunshine, health, and dirt-therapy!!!
God bless you today:)
The day is brighter when you are free:)

God Chaser said...

Thanks I needed the reminder Let go and Let God.

MyJourneyBack said...

I agree with the let go and let God. It is hard. We could hold each other up! BTW I am thankful too to be able to play in the dirt! I love the spring. In Texas our summers get so hot it is hard to do much gardening but I really enjoyed the spring.
Have a blessed Friday,

HEATHER said...

George said...

I agree that it is very hard (for me) to let go and let God. But life is so much better when I try. Thanks for your thankful list -- it's a great reminder of how much we have to be thankful for.

Laurie Ann said...
