😎🐫🎀 I played baseball up until I was a junior in high school. I really liked it and I was pretty good at it. I even said that when I grew up I wanted to be the first female player for the Cincinnati Reds.  Ah, dreaming is fun, but as I got older, I started to take more control of my decision and My life. Some of those decision led me down a path I really didn’t want to be on and the more I tried to take and keep control of My life, the further away I seemed to be from where I should have been.  I made things a lot more complicated than they needed to be. It can be hard giving up control of our lives and we generally don’t give full surrender. We tend to put our big toe in the water instead of doing a running canon ball jump into the pool of surrender.  My need for control was not only messing my life up, but also my family’s life. After all, they learn from our words and actions, right?  In 2011 I finally realized how hard God had been perusing me.  I didn’t have to be in control. I could let Him take the lead and follow with a willing heart. It’s amazing how much freedom comes with giving up control. Ever since I started reading westerns in high school, I’ve wanted to live on some acreage in a cabin. In my early 20’s I thought that was going to happen, but God said not now. I kept that dream alive until I went through my divorce. Once again God said not now, but I thought that dream died with my marriage. When we surrender our lives to God and are obedient to His call, He has a way of preparing us and rekindling those dreams in our lives that He planted deep in us oh so many years ago.  Don’t be childish, but have a childlike faith and soak in the blessings your Heavenly Father has chosen especially for you. Bless others and be blessed.

I find this video a little distracting, so maybe just listen to the words.
