Sometimes it’s okay to let go.
To let go of the striving, the quest for success, the desire to have more and be more.
To let go of the fretting, the worrying, the stressing over life.
To let go of trying to measure up, to be the best, to appear flawless.
To let go of hold ups, hang ups, let downs.
To let go of preconceived notions, expectations, intentions.
To let go and let God be God.
Friend, this may be the busiest time of your life. The busiest month of your year. The busiest week, by far. This is when it’s even more important to let go.
The world tells us to do the opposite. To kick it in overdrive, to do more, to not stop until you drop, to fake it until you make it. It also screams for us compete, to be envious, to have the latest and greatest. And it wants us to be discontented, disappointed, and disillusioned with who we are.
Don’t let these messages take your focus off what’s important. Don’t listen to the lies. Remember what you know. Remember truth.
I appreciate The Voice translation of Matthew 11:28-30:
Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Put My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.
I needed this reminder today.
We don’t need to do all we’re doing. Let’s slow things down, and give God every big and little matter that’s on our path. Let’s focus only on what He’s asking us to do. Let’s keep first things first. And let go of everything else.
It’s okay to let go.
There’s freedom in doing so.
Praying for each of us today!
