Let it Go

Have you ever played tug of war? Opposing teams pull at opposite ends of the rope until one team is dragged across the center line. The key phrase here is opposing teams.

When we try to maintain control over something we should be leaving to God, we are pulling on the opposite end of that rope. God is stronger and will pull us over the centerline, but we are making the situation harder, and take longer than it needs to.

Let it go. Stop trying to control it. Stop trying to force it or fight God for it. Let it go, and let God do what is best. He has this in His very capable hands.

Isaiah 41:10 – “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

Be blessed,

The Future of Blogs

Times are changing! And so is the online culture. Our culture seeks quickly consumable information, and a blog doesn’t always fit neatly into that space. I see more of a move to platforms like Instagram for quick inspiration and short videos, rather than lengthy exhortations.

So I’m taking a play from my millennial daughter’s playbook, and will be shifting focus from a weekly blog to daily/every other day shorter, more quickly consumable bites of encouragement across my social media platforms. You’ve seen this already in the form of the Faith Memes I just rolled out. I’ve been getting a great response, which tells me I’m heading in the right direction.

I’d like your help to determine the future of blogs. I’ve set up a poll on my Facebook Author Page. Select your preference there – Do you want to see the blogs go away entirely and have website posts focus on announcements and events, or do you want to keep seeing them, just much less frequently? The poll will stay active for a week, so please go and vote! Your opinion is so important, because this is all for YOU!

On the matter of Faith Memes, I’d love for you to share your story or need for encouragement with me, so I can make a meme for you! See the Faith Memes page to make a submission. It’s quick and easy, and will always remain confidential.

Be blessed,
C.K.
