Let Go and Let God

This is basically what the sermon was about today. Plain and simple: Let Go and Let God. Don never said it in so many words, but that was what it was. Trust in God and stop trying to do it yourself. Alot of people won't say this phrase because they think it is cliche. Well, yeah, I suppose. But really, now, are cliche's always so bad (this coming from an artist! WOAH!) seriously though. They got cliche for a reason. Their overused for a reason. They are true, they say it simple and straight. Course I guees we don't always want it to be so simple. Hearing it the same way over again makes it easier to ignore. But that doesn't mean it ought to be ignored. In fact, quite the opposite. Give it a shot onece again and just listen to what the good phrase says!

I've been trying to live this out today. It isn't too easy. I really like trying to do things and fix things. But I suck at it. I end up watching everyone help me fix my problems instead. Which is beautiful and absolutely humbling too. Lately I don't even know how to pray, I just know that that is the ONLY thing truly required of me.

Completely unrelated (though all things relate and I could make this relate if I wanted to, which I do, but it might be painful for you, my few and far between reader(s) : JUNO. Great movie. I giggled through about the entire thing. Somewhat crude at points (I give you fair warning) But it is just so honest and real and full of hope. (and sarcasm)

Quote from the movie: Doctors are sadists who like to play God and laugh at the lesser people's pain.

I knew it!

Good one, Becca:). Encouraging to hear. I tell myself that all the time, but it's nice to hear it from someone else.
