What Letting Go Looks Like In 2020

I am reading a RESET the Mindset devotional and one thing that struck out as we embark on 2020… that the whole process of letting go begins with controlling the thoughts!

“Every day is a new day. We get a new set of hours to live the lives that will bring glory to God and joy to our souls. We just have to recognize that and wake up with a newfound determination to be the boss of our thoughts, not the other way around.”
Reset Your Mind: Overhauling Toxic Thoughts
You Version Holy Bible App

Accompanied Scripture:
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 NIV

So holding onto things is an argument going on in the mind. It is repeating thoughts and constant rumination. On what? All the things we should be letting go of if we want to have a real reset and successful plunge into the new year. It means old thoughts are replaced with new ones, old plans are replaced with new ones, old relationships are replaced with new ones, old assignments are replaced with new ones, old ways are replaced with new ways and the old approach is replaced with a new approach. This is the reset.

So I could have done or continue to do the things I always do or just change it. I went into the new year LETTING GO! That was my mindset to reset. I went to a new town, new church, new environment… new everything! But the most profound thing I did as I stood in the violent shouts 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1….. was leave my hands open the whole time as I told God, “I am letting go and letting you!”

A great start to a new mindset for 2020. Christina has to LET GO FOR REAL! It’s now or never…. He knows what I mean. Especially when I cant always control the situations of life precisely how I want. Only He can.

This is what letting go looks like for me in 2020. As it is not supposed to make sense to all, it makes sense to me. Stop holding on to the things that take WAY TOO MUCH away from who I am and what I am really called to do. #letgoin2020 #resetthemindset
