On this day, my 33rd birthday – I am letting go.
I am letting go of perfection in pursuit of something more //
In pursuit of progress; in spite of imperfection.
I am letting go of fear //
The fear of failure; of vulnerability; of judgment.
I am letting go of comfort //
Because without discomfort, there will be no growth.
I am letting go of boundaries, limitations, confines //
That I have placed on myself; that have been placed on me by others.
I am letting go of expectations //
That don’t serve me; or that any of this should be easy.
I am letting go of the things that hold me back //
Misplaced priorities; the opinions of others; my own limiting beliefs.
It will take work. It will take courage. It will take prayer. Lots of prayer.
But this year, I will conquer fear.
I will let go – and I will let God work.
Through my imperfections //
Amidst my fear //
In my discomfort //
Beyond my limitations & expectations //
Because through Him, my ordinary can become extraordinary and nothing is impossible.
