I'm writing my Sunday post tonight since it is on my mind. : ) The title of this post kind of hit me today - the whole thought of how life is in the letting go and the holding on.
Letting go of:
*unforgiveness (in yourself and in others)
*comments made by others
And holding on to:
*Our future with the Lord
*What God says about us
Oh how I wish I could say that this comes easy for me. I'm getting better over the years at the "holding on to" list, but the "letting go" list is still a little difficult. Quite often that still small voice says "you of little faith." I don't mean for it to be that way. I don't wake up in the morning just wondering how I can make my life miserable. That's why I utter prayers for God's help and protection. He is constantly teaching me to depend on Him instead of myself. My self will usually let me down. He never does. If you can relate to this in any way, I hope you will join me in:
*Continuing to read God's Word (every day)
*Continuing in prayer (every day and throughout the day)
*Continuing to be others-centered instead of self-centered
God's Word shows us that we are not alone in our thoughts and feelings. So many others before us have had the same fears and worries. Prayer keeps our focus on God. Sometimes my prayers seem so small and unimportant compared to what others are going through, but God is there. He is listening. He cares. C.S. Lewis once said - "Prayer doesn't change God, it changes me." How true. And, lastly, thinking about others keeps our minds off of ourselves. There are a lot of needs to be met.
I hope you have a wonderful Sabbath. A day that is focused on Jesus. Let's try to let go and hold on to Him. : )
