What does it mean when you decide to let go? It doesn’t mean that you are weak and ineffective. It means you are powerless in the present situation and admitting that. It’s making a choice to seek out a power greater than yourself. Letting go takes a leap of faith. Letting go means letting go of control and your control, or illusion of control, was giving you something to hold on to.
Sometimes it may feel like it’s a choice made out of desperation because that’s all you’ve got left, but that’s okay. It may feel like a choice made out of a sense of helplessness, but it is a choice nevertheless and it works.
Letting go puts you in a position to receive far more than you ever let go of. It’s giving in to the reality of your situation and turning it over to God. It makes room for Divine solutions to appear.
I have sent this poem before, author unknown, but I think it bears repeating once in a while for those that may have forgotten, or for those who have never heard of it before.
Like children bring their broken toys with trust for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God because He was my friend.
But then instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone –
I hung around, and tried to help, with ways that were my own.
At last I grabbed them back and said “how can you be so slow?”
“My child” He said, “What could I do? You never did let go.”
Letting go of whatever is tormenting your soul may be just what your soul has been waiting for. I send along my light and support to anyone who is ready to let go and begin the healing process. And I also send you peace to accept Divine Timing. God’s love will answer in the perfect way, at the perfect time.
