If you haven’t seen Tangled yet, I recommend it for 100 minutes of clean fun, laughs, and great “a-ha” moments. I was drawn in by the opening line, terrific dialogue, and of course, the happily ever after ending.
There’s a scene in the movie where Repunzel leaves her tower, using her own hair as a means of escape. Just as she’s about a foot from the ground, she draws up her feet and hesitates.
After all, she’s about to embark on a new adventure. And it’s scary. There could be ruffians or thugs lying in wait.
Also, in the movie, Repunzel sings “I see the light.” One of my Coffee Girls felt as though the song was meant for her.
In many ways, it was.
My friend is going through some new life changes that have a positive impact on her life and mental wellbeing. These changes, while great, are a little scary. She’s like Repunzel—a foot from the ground and nervous about letting go.
Isn’t that how it is with each new adventure in our lives, whether it’s a new home, a new job, a new baby, or even starting a new novel?
My current WIP, the sequel to Lakeside Reunion, is almost done. In fact, I’m hoping to have it to my agent by the end of this week. Of course, that’s going to take a lot of prayer and BIC (bottom in chair) to make it happen. I’m confident in the first half of the story, but the second half still needs some work to strengthen the prose and plot to ensure I’m leaving the reader with that heart-sighing happily ever after moment.
No matter what challenges we are facing in our lives, God is waiting for us to let go and let Him carry us through.
If we seek Him in prayer, He will give us the wisdom and discernment to make a Godly decision that will keep us in the center of His will for our lives. Now let go and let your feet touch the ground—God is waiting to catch you. Isn’t that what living by faith is all about?
Your turn: Are you struggling with a letting go moment right now?
