A Stretch of Faith

Stretching yourself in faith, reaching out for that unknown requires perseverance.When the future looks bleak and the past is painful, you need a new perspective.

Take a different outlook by turning the situation into something more positive. The past is what it is, you cannot change it. Learning to let go will require a healthy dose of reality. Allow yourself time to process the pain, the grief, and the losses in life.

Letting go is extremely difficult. Memories will flood back and rush over you in an instant. All of a sudden you are caught up in a wave so deep you feel you can’t escape.  This is grief.

It requires time, it requires faith, and it requires love. Loving yourself enough to feel the pain and then allowing time to release that pain. The losses you face in life will shape you. Because of their existence, you are different. Take this with you the next time you feel like giving up, you are meant to be, the best, you can. Allow time to run its course. Prayer and healing strengthens your character. Wisdom in learned from the lessons of life.

Starting over is never easy, but to risk trying is missing out on the chances of God’s great work ahead for you. God promised that whatever work He has begun in you will be fulfilled. Philippians 1:4-6  

Take that promise with you today, begin to process the healing and let it capture the peace of your soul. The love is available to you. Reach out and God will meet you right where you are.

One thought on “A Stretch of Faith

  1. Yes it’s faith and love that allow me to let go. Sometimes the human in me try to take it all back and I don’t know if it’s lack of faith or the need to have Him comfort me again and again — seems unselfish huh to think only of myself. I have yet to understand everything but what I do know is it doesn’t go in one letting go — I have to do it over and over again until I accept the truth that it’s better left to Him.
