It seems that the majority of the times, that we will let go of something that we have been holding on to for years; whether it is a habit, a person or a job, it is because we feel that there is something better for us to grab on to. Even if it is a lesser situation, if we feel that it is for the best we will let go of it.
But the true Power in Letting go, first, must begin within you and not around you. It cannot be based upon the fact that I will obtain a thing that is better or someone I feel is better. It must be based on the fact that I am already acceptable within myself, enough to let you or it go and be alright. And that can only be done from a place of Love.
WE MUST BEGIN FROM A PLACE OF LOVE
Until then, we will spend years holding on to people, things and even memories, trying to build a life of false illusions of love. When we do, we are tying to keep that which have no need nor wanting to be kept by us. We build and design our own prisons and even though the doors can be opened, we will sit there feeling safer inside, rather than coming outside the walls.
GOD IS LOVE HIMSELF, THAT IS WHERE WE MUST BEGIN IN ORDER TO LET GO
As children of God, we must understand and know that we are already loved and valued. Therefore, all the people, things and actions that we connect with in this world are only fruits, not the root of Love within us.
When a person comes into your life and you fall in love. They don't give you love, you experience Love, it posses both of you. The same as when you let go, that person is gone, but the fact that you are loved, you have the ability to Love and to be Loved and is worthy of Love, it still is within you.
THE PEACE OF LETTING GO IS BECAUSE YOU ARE ALREADY WHOLE
We fear to let go because, we don't want to feel such a great lost emotionally, but we are more than our emotions. The fear of letting go is also because we are afraid to be alone, so that fear keeps us bound to and with people and places we should walk away from. This is why we must know the truth, Jesus said, "the Truth shall set you free." You are never alone in Love, because Love draws to itself.
LETTING GO AND LET LOVE
The Love in you, will affect your character and your decisions and that will draw Love to you. You draw to you what you are. You are whole, you are Loved. That is why it is important, to let go of that which will cause you to live less than who you are.
What are you drawing into your life? If Love is not the factor, go back to square 1, which is God is Love Himself, and as He pours Himself into you by His Holy Spirit, He is pouring His Love into you.
The Power and Peace of Letting go, will first begin with the Love of God in you, that makes you whole. It is not the things, nor people nor situations, that makes you whole. With this knowledge, you can let go of whatever, whomever or whenever it is needed.
This act of letting go, gives us inner power for other areas of our lives as well. Because in Christ we begin from a place of wholeness. Begin today, in faith, through the Holy Spirit and the love of God that is in you and let go.
Be a blessing to others as God has blessed you by becoming a sponsor or making a one-time donation to change a child's life. (Top of page DONATION BUTTON)
