What Am I

I am a private person. A private person with a passion for helping others. That doesn’t make much sense, but today God yanked me out of my box. I sat here taking the simplest of steps and watching as God does what only He can do.

blogI am a child of the one true King. He leads and guides my steps as long as I let Him. It’s easy to step in the way and try to run the show myself, but that normally doesn’t end well! Today, He grabbed me and started running. It was all I could do to keep up and it was mind blowing!

Two years ago I went through a process of shedding the old me and welcoming the new. Sorting through my past and keeping only what was beneficial. Afterwards, I was offered the opportunity to become a Coach of Letting Go. That was two years ago and we’re just now getting started.

The process took time and getting certified did too. A year ago I created this Blog spot and named it Letitgocoach. Finding the name started by using the words Let It Go, but none of those were available so I mashed it all together with Coach and it took. I had become a Letitgocoach by name.blog1

Then came the Facebook page. A year ago again, I created a community for people to be encouraged. It has grown over time and is just starting to really get noticed. Someone from that page contacted me. He asked me what prompted me to start it, so I told him, ‘God did. I’m an encourager and I’m a Coach.’ He had no clue by looking at the page that I am a Coach.

I went into the settings of the page and pulled the three words together that said, ‘Let It Go’. and added ‘Coach’. I changed the category from ‘Community’ to ‘Coach’. When I clicked ‘save changes’, it reloaded and my page transformed into saying ‘Letitgocoach‘, and that I am a ‘Coach’.

It changed right before my eyes. There are other Coaches out there that do similar work as me, but only one Letitgocoach. When we step into God’s will, He will show us what we need to become everything He has planned. I guess He saved that one word for me.

Trust Your Journey

I have been accused of being the Taylor Swift of the Blog world. We listen to her songs and try to guess what guy it’s about. Does it matter who? It matters that she learned enough to write a song and she wants to sing her way through.

blogI have learned so much on this journey. That is why I Blog. To share what I learn so it can encourage you on yours. I have noticed recently that someone will visit this site, read one of my Blogs and then read several. There will be the number one beside various Blogs with similar topic. This makes all writing worth while.

If I can encourage one person a day, then my mission is complete. Seeing the views increase over time encourages me to continue to share. I saw a quote last week that said, “A writer sits in front of the keyboard and bleeds.” That is very accurate. Just sit down and let it pour from the heart through the fingertips.

Have you ever had someone purposefully hurt you? This always brings me to John 10:10, “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance.” Just like God works through people for good, so does Satan for evil. These lessons come up quick now.

blog1God has my back. He knows the journey because He planned it. As long as I’m following His lead, it’s all good. It’s when I get off the path and start being me that things go wrong. I can hurt people by trying to protect them. Does God need help protecting the people I love? I don’t think so.

Using a GPS is always fun. If you miss the street, it will start rerouting to get you back in the direction you should be going. Wouldn’t it be nice if God gave us one of those for our journey? Whenever we got off the path it would start dinging and the little arrow would pop up in a u turn position.

Allowing ourselves to trust a higher power, the people placed in our path, and ourselves. We don’t have to understand, just trust and keep stepping. Don’t get stuck in the circumstance. God can change that in a heartbeat. By letting go of controlling our destiny, we will see a greater plan unfold.
