I learn and grow as I let go and move forward with God.
Life gives us a sequence of events to teach us to let go. As toddlers, we let go of an adult’s hand to take our first steps. As children, we let go of the security of our parents’ care to attend school. Finally, we leave our family home and live on our own. Each experience of letting go gives us an opportunity to grow in confidence. As life progresses, we learn to release those feelings and memories that do not benefit us. If we find it difficult to let go, we remember times we said goodbye to difficulties and received something better in the long run. I affirm: I am never alone when it is time to let go, for I am always one with God, my Light and my Protector.
Teach me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.—Psalm 143:8
