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


philippians 2.13

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.

Matt 6.26

Thank you God

for taking care of me
for delighting in my life
for knowing my needs
better than I do

Thank you God

for providing for me
for lifting me up
for bringing me close to you
when I need it most

Thank you God

for loving me
for holding me
for accepting me
just as I am

Thank you God

Oh, here, let me

Oh here, how about like this

Oh here, I know what you can do

Oh here, I can help

Oh here, I can do that for you

Oh here, I can make it happen

Oh here, why don’t you do it like this…

Oh here, what if you…

Oh here, how about like this…

Oh hereThe Fixer
let me
fix
everything
because
I’m the fixer

I can fix most anything
I have the best of ideas
and lots of solutions

because I am smart
and see things clearly

because I am helpful
and willing to assist

because I am giving
and have much to give

Yet
truly and deeply
if I look in my soul
I’m a fixer
to feel needed and wanted
and smart and resourceful
and important and liked
and loved

Yet
I am already all of these things
without fixing for you
so I will let you fix you
and maybe spend a little time
fixing me

Being a good person
loving and caring

Being a good teacher
guiding and imparting

Being a good partner
considerate and helpful

Being a good provider
feeding and sheltering

Being a good coach
available and accountable

Being a good child
obedient and achieving

Being a good parent
shaping and modeling

Being a good friend
listening and encouraging

All good things
Yes, indeed

Yet
not one of my roles
not one of the things I do
no matter how “good”
I am at it
no matter how “bad”
I am at it
not one of these things
determines my worth

I have worth.
I have value.
No matter what.

I have value just for being me

Today could seem
a lonely day

All excitement is done
All furvor has gone

Leftovers are scavenged
Only fruitcake cookiestwinkle
wait to be eaten

I sit
solemn and quiet
no music or laughter
fills this space
Only rain
taps a melody
on the window

Christmas lights
twinkle a delicate reminder
it’s time to be put away

Today could seem
a lonely day

But
God is here
always up for a chat
He sits in the armchair
and sips spiced tea

And
a good book
waits for my attention
a thrilling tale
of intrigue
and human nature

So
I sit
with adventures awaiting
knowing that today
Only could seem
a lonely day
