We all go through disappointments, setbacks and things that we don’t understand. Maybe you prayed for a loved one, but they didn’t get well. Or maybe you worked hard for a promotion, but you didn’t get it. You stood in faith for a relationship, but it didn’t work out. One of the best things you can do is release it. Let it go. Don’t dwell on it anymore. If you go around wondering why things didn’t work out, all that will do is lead to bitterness, resentment and self-pity. Before long, you’ll be blaming others, blaming yourself, or even God. You may not understand what happened. It may not have been fair. But when you release it, it’s an act of your faith. You’re saying, “God, I trust You. I know You’re in control. And even though it didn’t work out my way, You said, ‘All things are going to work together for my good.’ So I believe You still have something good in my future.”
There is power in letting go of the past and the frustration of trying to figure everything out. When you release your questions, you are saying, “God, You are in control. I trust You.” And when you put your hope in God, that’s when He can heal your heart and lead you forward into victory.
God does nothing wrong, He knows our desires and wants only what is right for us. That is why He gives us Himself; He knows that nothing outside of Himself is good and whole. Our greatest treasure in life is not what makes us happy, but, in fact what makes our cosmic king of glory most satisfied.
Christ was torn asunder so that we might not only be spared from that, but that we would live life to the fullest. Being transformed daily to His likeness, so that we no longer long for things that poison us or try and kill us. Instead, we look for that which our hearts have always longed for; A king who has been calling our names in love.
And when I finally understood that. I was wrecked and made new.
God hear our prayers <3
I don’t understand why we have to choose one person to be our “best friend”. why can’t we have lots of best friends with unique relationships with each person?
Sometimes life after college feels like being in second grade again.

We all go through disappointments, setbacks and things we don’t understand. Maybe you prayed for a loved one, but they didn’t get well. Or, maybe you worked hard for a promotion, but you didn’t get it. You stood in faith for a relationship, but it didn’t work out. Proverbs 20:24 says, “Since the Lord is directing our steps, why do we try to figure out everything that happens along the way?” Instead of trying to find a reason behind everything that happens, one of the best things you can do is release it to God and let it go. God is directing you every step of the way. He has a way of causing all things to work together for your good. Your part is to trust and release.
Sometimes this is hard to accept. Lord, help me to be obedient to You. Increase my faith, and have mercy on me.
