"When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment. Letting go of the past means you can enjoy the dream that is happening right now.” ― Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
I do not like giving up control. It creates a feeling of hopelessness and being helpless. My parents taught me to always take control of situations and see them through. With age I am learning quite the opposite. Seems to work to my advantage if I surrender all of it to God. Living in the NOW is important. Forgetting the past and not worrying about the future is important. Right now this moment is all you and I both have. Surrender to this moment and live your life fully.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
