As the song, “Let It Go” from the popular new Disney movie, “Frozen”, we need to let our
worries go and hand them over to God. After all, God is in control. And He will never let us
down. We can’t worry about tomorrow, but we need to live for today. There’s some things in
life that we can’t change and that’s not always easy to accept. We want our unchangeables
(things we can’t change) to change. That’s not reality, though.
Pray the Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr when you are having difficulty letting go:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Letting Go is so freeing. We can live life without any fears and enjoy life’s moments more
Trust that God has everything under control. Whatever is troubling you is already being taken
care of by our Lord and Savior. What a comforting feeling that is!
I love you, Lord. Give me the strength to just let go. Amen.
