Each day a new Beginning

There is a divine plan of good at work in my life. I will let go and let it unfold.
—Ruth P. Freedman—
We are never certain of the full importance or the eventual impact of any single event in our lives. But of one thing
we can be sure: Each experience offers something valuable to our overall development. We must not discount the experiences that are long gone. They contributed to all we’ve achieved at the present. And wherever today takes us will influence what tomorrow will bring. Perhaps our greatest difficulty as recovering women is not trusting that life is a process and one that promises goodness. That growth and change are guaranteed. That our lives have design,

and we’re blessed therein. Trusting isn’t easy. But we can learn, and we’ll discover freedom. Letting go of the outcome of every experience, focusing instead on our efforts, making them as good as possible, validates our trust in the ultimate goodness of life. Our frustrations diminish when our efforts, only, are our concern. How much easier our days go when we do our work and leave the outcome where it belongs. I will know a new freedom when I let go and trust that “my plan” is unfolding as it must. I will do my part, and no more.
