Where Do I Go From Here

Many people have stock piled in their minds or on paper what it is they want or would like to do in life. Others may have all types of plans in place for this and that, but the truth of the matter is we don’t actually control this thing called life. We wake up not knowing what card we will be dealt the day, month, year, or even life. We travel through this thing called life with the assumption that we are in control. Not so! We are seriously misinformed and sadly under the assumption that we control the direction in which our lives will take.

Life is so funny it can be like a sunny day then the next is like a tornado tearing through your life destroying all that is in front of you that seems to be right in your reach. So you question yourself asking what happened between yesterday and today…we forget God is in control and not ourselves. It’s hard to give over complete control to an entity, this untouchable being, this spirit in the sky; but letting go is exactly what we need to do! Many say let go and let God, so true so true! If we would only have total confidence that God gets it right every time and never of the sometimes we may come to understand how God works in our lives. It’s hard to receive something when your hand is closed or your vessel is already overflowing with your stuff. You must let go of that thing, person, or belief that you hold on to for dear life which is preventing God from putting something new in your life, in your space, and in your hand to cherish and provide you with the desires of your heart, it’s time—past time to let it go. Begin to pour out all the toxic stuff in and around your life that consumes you with negativity, chaos, and disparity. Because at the end of the day where do we go from this place in life without God.

He only requires you yielding yourself totally to Him so He and only He can take you by the hand and lead you through the complexities of life. These convoluted things we fill our lives with don’t allow Him to lead us because we feel as if we have it covered because we know it all, have it all, and all the world is at your disposal whenever you want and need it—I say keep on living. You see this thing called life will take you to places you never imagined you would have to go, or take you through circumstances you never dreamed of being smack dab in the middle. Then, we ask where do I go from here. Maybe, if you are in your right mind you will say I yield, I yield all that I have, all that I am, and all that is within me to You my God! I trust you and love you enough to believe you know where to take me not only from this space in life but throughout my life’s journey.
