Today I met this simple woman who told me about her story although she is uneducated ,she loved to learn and went to a night school just to learn the basics of education and she told her kids i want you to have the education that i didn’t had and let your children have a better education than you too
This simple woman has innate wisdom and believes so much in the value of education ,something not many educated people are aware of
She also spoke of God and told me we have no way of knowing what will happen to us next that’s why we should surrender everything to God and let God take care of our destiny ,i felt like this is a message from God to me . Those words reminded me of a struggle i am going through every day which is how to “Surrender”
I try my best but every time i fail to let go and surrender ,why? Because i think I am too smart ,I overthink and analyze everything and I think I can always find a way to make things work no matter how hard it seems to be!
It’s my Ego I know ,my Ego thinks If I let go ,I will lose and be lost .
My ego thinks letting go means giving up .My Ego is scared to death of what will happen next ,uncertainty drives my ego crazy and it can’t comprehend that surrender is the most powerful act I can do to let my destiny unfold the way it is meant to be
But it is okay I don’t want to make an enemy of my Ego ,I approve of it and its fears and I am aware of it and I always remind myself of how surrender is the best way to reach my destination
Do I stop trying?! No actually I keep trying and taking actions but I know when to stop myself and let it go and remind my ego it’s okay to be afraid but it is for your own good to believe in a higher ,smarter and more powerful force than yourself which is God
My Ego agrees for a while then returns back again to going back and forth between freaking out and pushing me to do something
It is good to keep my ego under control ,i am the one in control and i chose to surrender and see what will happen
Back to this woman again I was amused and amazed at her simplicity and wisdom and the way she carried herself
Her message is simple yet wise
Education is important ,keep learning to understand life
Believe in the power of God ,He is really the one in control ,surrender to God so you dont have to worry or think about anything in life
All I can say is Amen 🙂
