Friday 3/11/11 - "TUG OF WAR"





TUG-OF-WAR

It was war. One person was willing to lose much - financial stability, companionship, deep love from another - all for the sake of doing what they wanted to do. The other was just as willing to give up most precious things in their life for the sake of demanding the other not do them. As hard as one dug in with insistence that it go their way, just as hard did the other dig in that it go theirs. The intensity of this battle of wills grew till it reached an impasse that neither was able or willing to break. The tug of war between them was futile, exhausting and certain to produce no victors.

When the time was ripe, in an act of grace, God finally whispered in the spirit of one of them, "Just let go of the rope. The moment you let go of the rope everything will fall, the entire situation will simply collapse, blow away like dust on the wind, disappear. When all finally settles, only My Will shall remain."

In that moment of clarity a feeling of intense relief, peace, and serenity blossomed. There was a knowing that truth had been revealed and all would be well. Deeper insights would be found as it was pondered in the heart. The war had ceased to exist.

God alone has all power and God's Will is perfect. All that's necessary is to let go of pride and ego and allow God full reign.

good to see you PG...learning to let go is never easy...as we give up control and allow gods will to remain...

You last statement hit the button on the nose. Oh but it can be so hard. God bless you in your journey!

You could be telling my story of the last 2 years. But I know that you are telling your own. Either way, the solution is always the same:

Let go.

I love you and miss seeing your posts. Please don't be a stranger.

"All that's necessary is to let go of pride and ego and..." FEAR!

OH, dear PG !!

What a blessing it was to read your comment today, and come read your post. I miss you.

Over and again....God sends messages to me through people like you who say exactly what I need to hear. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

"Make time for quiet moments, as God whispers, and the world is loud." This hangs over my desk on a ceramic plaque...and it is something I need to read every day.
Love you--Annie

It's so good to see a post from you Anna. I have missed you.

Let go and let God. It is the only way for me to be happy.

I too am glad to read you again. I wondered where you were and what you were doing. No sense struggling for control of another. It gains nothing. Wishing you well.

It does take two to have a tug of war. If one of you lets go, there is no war. I'm trying hard to do this in my own life. It boils down to a hard question: Do I have faith in the care of God, or don't I?
Nice to see you again, PG.

You are one of the most beautiful spirits I know!

I have missed you so much, and this post is the story of so many including myself, it changed when I chose to listen to the voice of God also and let go, not easy in the least, but I am so happy that you are back and hope to continue to read you...I love and have missed you greatly!!!

Perfect! I have not been blogging much except for Sunday Citar in recent weeks. Life is full of its ups and downs. But no matter when I have come here and no matter how I was when I arrived, I left uplifted. Angels around you.
