I felt the need to defend myself over and over again.
I still do.
Every day I fight the urge to contact this person and explain myself just one last time. Surely, this is just a big misunderstanding. I really am a good person!
But every time I go to plead my case, yet again, I keep these three words, “let it be”.
Just let it be.
Easier said than done.
Well, to let something “be” means that I have no control over it.
To let something “be” means that things just may not turn out the way I want.
Letting it “be” means I run the risk of never being deemed “right” (and, believe me, I am right)!
To let it “be” means I have to let go and letting go is hard.
I want to control the situation (yep, I said it).
I want everthing to turn out my way (said that too).
It’s hard to let it be.
But sometimes, that’s just what we have to do.
Let it be.
Trust that you’ve done all you can do.
Know that He has your best interst in mind; even if His way doesn’t turn out to be your way.
Take a deep breath and…
Let it be.
