♕ Today's Promise: “Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.” 1 Chronicles 16:24
Thank goodness the Lord is so patient with me! This whole "letting go" process has been difficult and I have been doing it slowly over months. I don't call or text my husband for anything unless it is related to our kids and even then, that is rare. On occasion, I still do nice gestures for him like giving him extra food that I've made, etc when he picks up our kids. I struggle between showing unconditional love and "letting go" completely and by completely I mean not doing ANYTHING for him other than being cordial when he's around and of course having him in my heart at times when I do not want to. I don't think about him all of the time though praise the Lord! I WANT to let go! I know when the time is right, God will open the doors for His unconditional love for my husband to flow through me.
For months, I have read others talk about "letting go" and love songs. I did not quite understand this whole love song thing. I praise and worship the Lord all the time in my kitchen to Christian music. What is this love song stuff about? How does this seem right I thought? I didn't pay much attention to the course on "letting go" in the past and I briefly visited the love songs section a couple of times in the past as well. I must admit, love songs to the Lord did not appeal to me and I left it at that.
It was the Encourager email for May 3rd titled "Dreams Alive in my Heart" that I was reading and the Lord led me to click on the "let him go" hyperlink which then led me to love songs again through this email. This time, the Lord made sure I read everything through regarding the love songs. I finally listened to the song on the page "Anyone at All". What??? It was like a light bulb moment!!! Praise God! Something inside of me finally clicked and decided what the heck do I have to lose so later that night I decided to put on my Alexa to a love song station and listened to song after song after song and wrote down all of the ones that spoke to me.
I finally made a love song playlist for my Heavenly Husband!!! After about 10 months of finding this ministry. This was all His doing! He led me back here for this reason to take me to the next level of "letting go". Praise God! I want to share with all of you my love song playlist that I have so far starting with my top three first. I went from thinking this is so weird to 21 love songs for me and my Heavenly Husband!

I find myself singing "Anyone at All" to myself all the time now. Finding love songs and listening to them with the Lord in my heart and mind really has started to take me to another level of healing and "letting go". God does know what he is doing! Let the Holy Spirit lead you. Get out of the way and submit! TRUST in God's timing and plan. He is amazing and I won't do life without Him ever again!
Praise you God for your compassion and thank you for your Son and setting me free! I love you!
