Let It Go

I have been meaning to write this post for weeks now. Man, where does the time go!

Over the last 4 months I have gone through such a hard but amazing process. A process of brokenness, growing, and healing. As much as it hurt, I am thankful I experienced it all. Every emotion. It took me so long to finally be able to "let go" of things and move on. Over the last month and half I finally was able to do that. It has been such a rejuvenating feeling. It's so great to know that God can teach me things and move in me whenever He wants to! :) About 2 weeks ago I got the new Andrea Hamilton CD and have been listening to it on repeat! There is one track on the cd called "Let It Go," and the first time I heard it I felt so affirmed by the lyrics. I felt like she was singing about my last four months and finally affirming me in the decision I made over the last 5 weeks. I know God has something amazing in store for me!

These are the lyrics:

Remember how we got started*
Empty handed but open hearted*
Arms wide nothing to hide nothing to prove*
We weren't scared of anything*
Stepping out and jumping in*
To whatever our hearts wanted to do*
Then what happened, I gave it all I had*
Why did it hurt me so bad*
Oh just let it go*
Somehow we got stranded*
Wounded, misunderstanding*
and love hardly feels inviting anymore*
The past got buried in pride*
It's hard to hold but easy to hide*
and I can tell it's weighing on my soul*
Is it worth it, when I take a look inside*
all the heartache I find*
Oh just let it go*
Oh just let it go*
It's safe between the walls we build*
Tall with stones and anger filled*
But it's lonely and it's cold*
Oh just let it go*
Oh just let it go*
You were told a lie, let it go*
Tired of trying, let it go*
You're worried about tomorrow, let it go*
Full of pain and sorrow, let it go*
If you're angry about the past, love that didn't last*
Dreams that died too fast, let it go*
Oh just let it go*

God is constantly teaching me lessons and humbling me. I love knowing that I have such a wonderful Savior on my side who is willing to listen to me cry, and be mad and angry, and yet God has such a divine plan for me and He can't wait until I walk in His path to find it and give praises to Him!

Check out Andrea Hamilton's music too! Its amazing!

I'm glad that this expression of something that God is continually teaching me can also help you. It makes it all worth it.
