Letting Go and Letting God

Have you ever tried to hold onto something even though you knew it was not filling your heart with joy? Have you felt that each time you grabbed a little tighter you instead felt little pieces of joy breaking away and in place of joy found that fear was filling the parts of your heart that had once been full of joy?

Letting go and Letting God isn't always the easy choice. Have you ever thought you were letting go of something only to realize later you were waving at God with one hand and asking for help while still holding on tight with the other. Letting go with both hands doesn't mean you don't care what happens. It's taking a leap of faith and fully trusting that God will catch it and you. If faith is truly the antidote to fear what's the worst thing that will happen if you choose faith over fear?

In preparing for my upcoming coming move, I'm realizing there are a lot of things that I'm going to have to truly Let Go and Let God. Starting today I am going to follow the advice of a friend and start a God bucket. She suggests writing down the things I need to let go of and physically put them into that bucket. My bucket might be a paper cup bucket, HA, but it will be something tangible. Today, I am making a choice to let go with both hands. I am choosing to use those hands to pray instead of to hold on. I am choosing to focus energy on the things that fill my heart back up with joy.

If you could not be afraid, what would you choose to let go of today?
