I once heard a story about someone who fell into a pit and was hanging on to a branch which was holding him from falling all the way down. In his fear, he cried out for someone to help him. He heard a voice call out to him. Excitedly, he asked, “who’s there?”. The voice answered, “It’s me God”. He was very happy! “Oh thank you God, if anyone can help me, it’s You!” “Ok my son” God replied. “Let go of the branch”. “Let go of the branch?” He asked incredulously. “Yes son, let it go”. He looked down and saw a never ending black hole. “Help,” he cried. “Is there anyone else up there?” Many times in our lives things happen that we don’t understand. You are just about to get a big job, or a business deal and at the last minute it doesn’t fall through. You cry out in your frustration to God and don’t seem to get a favorable reply. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been so close to a deal, I could literally smell the money and pecks that come with it, only to have it pulled out from under me. I have cried real tears of frustration and mourned those jobs and deals, sometimes for weeks, wondering why.

All things work together for good, right? What is the good in a deal that will bring good money and perks just going away like that? What is the good in loosing a loved one? When I lost my mom, I just couldn’t get it! What could the good be?!!! It’s been almost 13 years and I dare say I don’t know what good came out of it but over the years, I have come to let go and let God. Many times, a much bigger and better deal comes that wipes the tears of the deal I lost. Other times, nothing comes but I have learnt to trust that He knows what’s best for me and he makes all things beautiful in His time. It doesn’t mean I don’t hurt or even cry (yeah, I cry about stuff like that. I am human after all…lol!) but after wiping my tears, I tell myself “it’s working for my good”. It always is all part of God’s grand plan for my life. I am not perfect. Far from it! I make mistakes everyday. Sometimes they are not even mistakes, I do the wrong thing knowing fully well that it is wrong but hoping it won’t matter in the end.

I just came by to encourage someone including myself that if we could just let go and let God, all things will work together for our good. Sometimes, the ‘good’ might not be what we had hoped for or envisaged, but because none of us knows tomorrow, it’s still best to let go and let God! Don’t forget to leave your comments or share your own experiences. I am loving them! Love always!

  1. That’s life journey with various bends, that we occassionally blend through if we do let God, the constructor lead us on.

    Most times its really hard not questioning yourself or God when things don’t go as expected. I have been searching for a job and after a long time, I have an interview where I tell the truth about my situation and I am denied the job for been so truthful, hence back to square 1…i cry but I tell myself whatever I say to anyone has to be nothing but the truth because God is watching. So I dust myself up and live my life because I know better opportunities are on the way…
