As we mature, there comes a time when we need boundaries, to know when, to let go and love from a distance. Adapting and adjusting to trials and tribulation, and things and/or stuff requires being spirit led with fruit of the spirit as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23.
Possessing love (giving), joy (gladness), peace (free from worry and fear), long suffering (patience), gentleness (kindness), goodness (generosity), faith (dependability), meekness (gentleness) and temperance (self-control) within us helps with trials and tribulations, and things and/or stuff.
Trials and tribulations, things and/or stuff happens. The test is how we react to it. There will always be something or someone testing us. It’s all part of life, change and growth. Many times, we forget to breathe and focus to stay spiritually calm. (wink) The flesh man rises.
Flesh man rising is where a warning should register but nope, we proceed anyway. Sometimes, we forget that we can choose to let stuff go. Too many distractions, coupled with hunger, tiredness, etc, fuels the challenging moment. We’re human and we all have a breaking point.
Again, thank God for his mercy and grace! None of us are immune from stumbling! (shock face) It’s all part of growing, maturing and producing more fruit within us.
Learning to let go frees us from thinking we have to do everything. We don’t!
Learning to let go means putting it at the foot of the cross. Let God!
Learning to let go keeps us with God’s peace. God is always in charge, regardless of what we see! Again, we must walk by faith trustingRomans 8-28, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (smile)
God bless us, by faith, as we let go of unnecessary stuff blocking our spiritual growth. Let thy will be done.
