Whether it's that second piece of pumpkin pie, a past relationship, or a nagging regret, sometimes it's just hard to let go.  One of the biggest reasons why it's hard to let go is because each person believes they are strong enough to fix the problem they are facing.
"I can stop drinking whenever I want.
"If I finally give in, then he will come back to me.
"If I buy this present for them, then they will like me.
These are just a few of the lies we tell ourselves about our strength and control.  Do any of them sound familiar?  Here's the real problem:  You're not strong enough.  It's true.  You can't control, manipulate or fix all the problems in your life.  However, there is some really good news.  If we learn to let go of whatever issue we are trying to fix, we will discover that God is strong enough, and he will provide for us the next step we need to take.  Do you want to learn more?  Give a listen to part four of our sermon series, Singing the Sacred.  We know it will be helpful!
