Happy Monday, Friends! I feel bad about not getting anything posted last week, but I’ve got a few posts that are almost ready to go up!
But, I wanted to start this week off with some #MondayMotivation! And, this in this phrase is the ultimate empowerment.
I think we all struggle with the idea of “Letting go, and letting God.” Today’s world is so focused on instant gratification. And, don’t get me wrong, 2-day shipping is a wonderful thing, but we have to come to the realization that things aren’t always going to happen in our time frame.

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
If you’re facing a challenge in life right now, know that God’s got you and that He’s in complete control. Plans may not work out and our timeline may get thrown out the window, but there is a reason for us to keep our peace.
