Releasing Our Grip
We go through so many seasons in life. Growing, pruning, changing, transforming, meditating, reflecting and back again. With each season comes new lessons, new opportunities, new goals, new values and new dreams. The times change but the seasons never do. I’ve recently stumbled on a season of “letting go.” I thought it was only fitting that this was a snippet from my daily devotional this morning.
I am learning to let go of things and it is difficult but essential to my growth in this season. I’m learning to let go of relationships that don’t serve me or my purpose anymore. I’m learning to let go of things in the material realm that just add clutter to life. I’m learning to let go of control in situations and circumstances and I am coming to terms with the fact that maybe (juuuust maybe) in some cases, I suck at the helm of my life.
I have found that when I can let go of the emotion, fear, worry and anxiousness, then turn from it, God’s presence is there waiting to catch me. His grace grips me and little by little the things of the World that I hold so near and dear seem not to have such precedence in my life. Don’t get me wrong, this is not as easy as it sounds. It’s not all butterflies and fairy dust… Most of the time God has to take it from me kicking and screaming and throwing a temper tantrum like a 3 year old… But when I finally release my grip ::deep breath, exhale:: I find peace.
