It’s Five Minute Friday!
“Let go, I’m diving in…”
Isn’t that some Christian song that gets overplayed on my local station? I think so. In fact, now I’m thinking it’s Steven Curtis Chapman, who I do love, so maybe it’s not so overplayed, but rather a repetition I need to hear.
Let go. You have to let go to dive. To get there.
I am struggling with the letting go. With the final release of toes and head and heart and accepting what I am learning about myself each and every day.
I can’t please everyone. I can’t agree with everyone. I can’t make nice in every situation and in every social circle and in every political arena.
Not that I’m surrounded my many of those.
But I can’t. I have to let that go if I’m going to truly dive in to what could be an amazing, beautiful, incredible, surrendered life.
I need to dive deeper into the Word, into the reflection, into the quiet.
I need to let go of insecurity and perfection and the idea that anything that comes to me is something that I deserve, that I have earned.
I’m taking a plunge today at my local MOPS group. I’m telling some of my story, some the most raw parts that I’ve published here, but they’ll probably get an even deeper admission. A true dive into where I’ve really been.
Plunge is our MOPS theme this year….going deeper….letting go. Dive.
