Giving up control

Today is 02.20.20. This is post 123.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and He delights in his way. (Psalm) 37:23.

If we want to live out of our deepest desires and follow our passion in life we have to learn to let go and give up the control. Watch the leaves on trees let go every Autumn. I stood under a tree today and watched them gently flutter to the ground, yellow and golden wings of wisdom.

Controlling behaviour is rooted in fear; perhaps fear of failure or fear of taking risks.

Perfect love casts out fear. Get around people you can be real with about your fears. People who are skilled at speaking truth with love; no judgement or condemnation.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
