Letting Go and Surrendering to the Process

By Publisher Kimi Johnson

Today, I want to chat about something that's been on my mind lately: the beautiful art of letting go and surrendering to the process.

Let's be real for a moment. Life can feel like a wild ride, full of twists, turns, highs, and lows. One moment, you're soaring high on cloud nine; the next, you're plummeting into uncertainty. It's exhilarating, terrifying, and everything in between. But amidst this chaos, there's a profound lesson to be learned: the power of surrender.

One of my dear sisters in Christ sent me a text message yesterday morning that really hit home. Within the message, she shared Proverbs 13:8, "Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice."

As I read the word of God, I was led by Holy Spirit to dig a little deeper. That's when I found myself in that scripture, slap dab in the middle of how pride can show itself.

Seeking independence or control.


Yup, that's me. I didn't realize how much of an issue this was for me until Holy Spirit shone His sovereign light, exposing the truth.

Like you, I've had my fair share of highs and lows. Moments of triumph where everything seems to align perfectly, followed by times of struggle where nothing goes according to plan. It's during those challenging times that I try to hold on for dear life to control the outcome of my situation and sometimes even the situations of those connected to me.

I'm learning to loosen my control grip and simply trust the process.

Think about it. How often do we exhaust ourselves trying to micromanage every aspect of our lives, only to end up frustrated when things don't go as planned? I know I've been guilty of this more times than I can count. But here's the thing: life has a funny way of working itself out when we surrender to its flow.

When we let go of the need to control every outcome, we open ourselves up to endless possibilities. We allow room for growth, transformation, and unexpected miracles to unfold. It's about releasing the tight grasp on our expectations and embracing the beauty of uncertainty.

Now, I'm not saying it's easy. Surrendering control can be downright scary. Trust me, I know! It requires vulnerability, courage, and a whole lot of faith.

So, how do we start surrendering to the process? It begins with acceptance. Accepting that we can't control everything, and that's okay. Embracing the present moment and finding gratitude for the journey, no matter how bumpy it may seem.

It's about shifting our perspective from one of resistance to one of surrender. Instead of fighting against the currents of life, we learn to flow with them. We surrender our fears, doubts, and need for certainty; in doing so, we discover a newfound sense of freedom and peace.

So, to anyone reading this struggling to navigate life's ups and downs, I encourage you to take a deep breath and surrender. Trust in the wisdom of God and know that everything is unfolding exactly as it should. Embrace the journey, embrace the unknown, and above all, embrace the peace in letting go.

Remember, life is a beautiful mess; sometimes, the best thing we can do is simply surrender to its wild and wonderful rhythm.

Until next time, keep surrendering, trusting, and embracing the journey.

With love and surrender,
