I need to let go
of the need
for control

When I think I have everything handled
When I think I’ve got it all figured out
When I think I know the answers

I don’t.

I need to let go
of the need
for certainty

When I think I found the right path
When I think I am ready to charge ahead
When I think I see a perfect vision and purpose

I don’t.

Because certainty is an illusion
And looking for it
leads me into
hesitation
fear
paralysis

Yet if I let God
do Her thing

If I let go of the need
for control
for certainty

ThenĀ all that I need

the desire
the power
the energy
the faith

All will be given to me
Just when I need it
Just how I need it
completely and beautifully
out of my control

When I feel alone
in a room crowded with people

When I feel panic
swelling in my gut

When I feel worry
creeping into my brain

When I feel uneasy in any way
I know the darkness of fear
is trying to get in

I know the dark one
is trying to break me down

But I am a child of light
I am loved
I am never alone
My life mapped
My purpose designed

And like a child
into a swimming pool
I must jump
with all my being
with childlike trust
and splash and play
in waters of uncertainty
without the flotation devices
of knowledge and control
yet faith and hope
keep me afloat

So when I feel fear, panic or worry
When I feel uncertain or out of control
It’s time to let go
to live in faith
to jump in the pool
to float in trust
surrounded by love

Two years ago a simple girl came to a realization.
In a divinely inspired moment of clarity
she understood that nothing she does,
nothing that has been done to her,
and nothing she will do in the future
– any mistakes, hurts, heartaches –
NOTHING will impact her worth.
God loves her for all the imperfection she is,
and she needed to learn to love herself that same way.

She suddenly felt empowered and inspired.
She wondered if everyone out in the world knowmyworth
already knew this truth,
or if it was her job to share it.

She hesitated.
“Who am I to lead this truth?”

But she didn’t let that voice
fear and doubt
take root.
She didn’t let her ego
or fear of failure
stand in the way
of what the Creator
was sharing.

So she started a blog
and a facebook page
that has been blessed
and blossomed
into a community.

She didn’t have to be an expert
because it wasn’t about her anyway

She may be only one step ahead
on this WORTH journey,
but she could use that one step
– she could reach back her hand
and help someone else along the path.

I am that girl.
And I am so grateful
that you are here with me
on this journey of worth

Sometimes
I reach out my hand to you
Sometimes
you reach out yours to me
we journey together
finding our way
keeping our hope
holding our faith
believing in ourselves.

I want to live my truth

and yet…

I struggle to define it

what is real?
what speaks directly to my heart?
how do I define this life?

What is truth?My path, my truth

Others want to define truth for us
teachers, pastors, parents, friends

And for much of my life
I let them

and yet…

I don’t think I can
any longer

I feel fear
breaking molds
not meeting expectations
not fitting in

and yet…

I feel free
living authentically
living my truth
building my own faith

I will say
what it is I believe

I will determine
what is “right”

I will know
what God speaks to my heart

I will release
judgment and fear

I will be ready
to follow my heart
and all
that is revealed
