Letting Go

Friday, November 30, 2012

Today is the last day of #bloglikecrazy. I did it! I blogged every day for 30 days straight!

One of my goals for the month was to figure out exactly what I wanted for the future of my blog. My hope was to announce these plans in today's post.

The timing, I thought, would be perfect. Not only is today the final day of my big blogging challenge, but tomorrow is the first day of December. Though I do spend this month feeling queasy over Christmas, I also spend this month drafting a long list of goals for the upcoming year. In fact, I got so excited thinking about 2013 I had completed my list of aspirations two weeks ago.

And then I deleted it.

I deleted it because while I've been blogging like crazy, I've also been praying like crazy. My relationship with God has transformed and suddenly I want to let go of my plan for my life and follow God's plan for my life instead.

(You should have seen this coming.)

No, this doesn't mean I'm going to get all weird on you or act "holier than thou" as my mom would say. And this doesn't mean I'm not going to have a list of goals for 2013. I believe God made me a dreamer for a reason. I believe God wants me to be ambitious. I'm still going to spend this month drafting that list for 2013. But I want God to be at the center of all those aspirations. I want my plans to focus on helping others not just making a name for myself in Birmingham, the blogosphere and beyond.

I think I figured out a while ago why God put me in the world. Now I need to figure out why God put me in the world wide web. I hope you'll go with me on this journey as I strive to redefine my goals.

And I leave you with my music mantra for this next month.

    1. Thanks, Sherri. That really means a lot to me.

  2. Can't wait to see where you go by letting go! Thanks for inspiring us all. (I did more reading of than writing blogs, but I did start a novel :-)

  3. "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans."

    Proverbs 16:3 is what I've learned to live by and I haven't looked back since. One of the best decisions of my life.

    God bless you.

    1. Thanks, girl. That's one of my favorite verses too! I committed my writing organization for women, See Jane Write, to God near the end of the summer. A few weeks later I was notified that I'd be recognized by the Women's Fund of Greater Birmingham for all I'd accomplished with the group!

  4. This post inspired me to finish a post. . .
