Today, while playing golf, I realized that the problem with my golf game wasn’t that my swing was bad, but my rhythm, balance and timing were off. When I lose confidence in my golf swing, I try to make it happen, hindering its development, with lousy results. When we hurry or try to control anything we tend to hinder its development. Dictionary.com defines development as the process of bringing out the capabilities of; bring to a more advanced or effective state; to cause to grow, expand or elaborate. I call it letting things just happen!
God has designed the universe and controls it perfectly. Everything in the universe has a process and needs to be allowed to develop. I have been trying to control my life for so many years that I tend to try to rush it and not allow it to develop. When I relax, show up, suit up and let life happen instead of make life happen life develops perfectly and my approval or disapproval is the only portion of the universe that isn’t perfect. When I just live my life all the wrinkles eventually get ironed out.
I know that if I take the time to practice my golf swing I achieve confidence in it and let it develop the way I spent years designing it to. When I don’t take the time to practice I think I can fix it with more aggression. This always comes back to bite me in the derriere. Golf is a carbon copy of my life. When I pray and meditate or practice talking and listening to God, I acquire faith or confidence in God and stay away from disrupting God’s plans. Knowing that God always get the last word in anything helps me to just live. To know what needs to be allowed to develop all I need to do is let go and remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
