The biggest challenge that I have had in my life is trusting that there is a plan and that the Creator knows it, is in control of it, and and I need to let go of it. The plan for salvation is to be connected to the Creator. It is to let go of trying to control the things of this world and embrace the peace of knowing that we don't have to control it. When we hold grievances against others, live in fear of others hurting us, or even when we obsess about keeping things under control, we are going agains that plan. Fear and Faith cannot exist in the same moment. Fear is the opposite of love and the opposite of faith.
The plan is simple. It is me who has complicated it. The plan is to maintain connection to the source. The complication becomes trying to redefine where I get what makes me authentically me. It is in living into someone else's version of who I am supposed to be instead of living into who I was created to be. Transitions are hard. Change is hard. Letting go is hard, until the moment that you do. The moment that you no longer desire the approval of man but instead seek the connection to the Creator, that is the moment that you see truth. you see what is real. Nothing that is real can be threatened. When we take our eyes off of that connection and attempt to control the world around us, that is the moment that we begin to sink. We sink because we are relying on what is not real, and all that is not real does not exist. The peace of God rests in knowing the difference between what is real and what is not real.
The plan for your salvation is to be connected to the Creator. The rest is just details. The details come together on their own when you keep your eye on that connection. And man do I love it when a plan comes together!!!
