Frustration...but Letting Go!

Church was an amazing blessing this morning. Having FAITH is one of the hardest things to accomplish (for me anyway). Trusting that we are following what God has planned is not easy. I feel we overlook signs and refuse to fall when commanded. I am a BIG believer in signs. I think God hands us signs everyday. Some we see, some we don't see, and some we don't want to see.

Has there ever been someone in your life that has done something so incredibly wrong to you that you just can't let go of it? Have you ever known someone that was completely blinded and had their head in the sand? Maybe this person has wrong information, maybe they are only getting one sentence of an incredibly long story, or maybe they are just simply ignorant to what is right and what is wrong. I learned today that God doesn't want us to hang on to things like this. It is not up to us to to to make someone see what they cannot. It is not up to us to try and "FIX" someones' wrongs. God will take care of that in the end....he ALWAYS does. We need to walk with him, beside him, and put our faith and trust in ONLY him. Everyone else will just let you down.

On this day I pray for strength, forgiveness, and the ability to let myself fall...to let myself follow what God has in store for me.

I am going to move subjects a little. On the way home from church this morning I heard an amazing song. I have always liked this artist, but her songs have never really hit me like it did today. Christina Perri has an amazing voice. Her stories are amazing and her blog is great too. She has had a life filled with music and has had to deal with a lot of heartbreak. Her brother plays guitar for Shinedown also!

Here are a couple of her beautiful songs. I, of course, have my favorites, but LOVE them all. Check her out and join her site at http://www.christinaperri.com/! She will be HUGE!

Jar of Hearts

i know i can't take one more step towards you
cause all that’s waiting is regret
don't you know i'm not your ghost anymore
you lost the love i loved the most

i learned to live, half alive
and now you want me one more time

who do you think you are?
runnin' 'round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
tearing love apart
you're gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
don't come back for me
who do you think you are?

i hear you're asking all around
if i am anywhere to be found
but i have grown too strong
to ever fall back in your arms

ive learned to live, half alive
and now you want me one more time

who do you think you are?
runnin' 'round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you're gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
don't come back for me
who do you think you are?

it took so long just to feel alright
remember how to put back the light in my eyes
i wish i had missed the first time that we kissed
cause you broke all your promises
and now you're back
you don't get to get me back

who do you think you are?
running around leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you're gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don't come back for me
dont come back at all

x2

who do you think you are?
who do you think you are?
who do you think you are?


Crying


You


Break Free
