Let Go and Let God

I don’t often venture into the realm of politics or religion on the blog, but I’m going to break my rule today.

As most of you know, I’ve been going through a divorce for the past eighteen months. It’s been, to say the least, bizarre.

I had planned on moving to Oklahoma nearer my middle son and his family. Being involved with part of my family would be great, though I would most likely not be around them all the time. They need their space and I enjoy being alone.

Interesting things to do in Oklahoma. I had a job offer in Norman.

There is real grass and trees there.

Mostly, even a modest settlement would allow me to pay off my bills and move on with my life.

I planned to eventually get another horse and maybe start roping with Aly, my daughter-in-law.

Things have taken yet another odd twist and all that may be out the window.

I know God has a plan for me and it’s better than the one I may have dreamed up. If you are a believer, I’d like you to join me in a prayer for me to stay in God’s will and live out His plan. I have a very bad habit of wanting to fiddle with things when He is working, much like a two-year-old insisting on dressing themselves and getting everything wrong. In this case, I really think I need to let go and let God.

I know the plans I have for you, plans for good and not evil.

Thanks, back to our regularly scheduled programming.


  1. Oh, Julie,
    I’m so sorry. Give God the freedom to work in your life before he gives you a distraction. You are in my prayers. I can’t wait until we hear what God’s plans are for you. All for your good and His glory.

  2. I’m fairly new to your blog, and I want you to know that I love it! I also love how you’re not afraid to be honest and personal with your readers.

    God’s way of getting us from point A to point B is not always a direct line, and that’s so hard for us to understand and allow. He honestly knows what He wants for you and how best to get you there, even if you can’t see it or understand His process. He loves you so much and has only the best laid plans for you.

    From one “fiddler” to another, I’m praying for you and for your journey to the other side of disappointment.


  3. CJ, thank you so much.

    I confess I have wasted a lot of tears the past few days. Fortunately, I have a “two minutes to cry,” rule. I can cry and sob all I want for two minutes and then I have to wash my face and get back to work.

    It will all work out for the best. I just need to keep my fingers out of the plan.



  4. Justus, it’s been very bizarre. I am glad to have it coming to a close, but I had hoped for something better. I know my lawyer is sick of messing with it and it needs to be closed.

    Just need to keep my head down and stay in prayer about it.
