Let go

tearsYesterday the world crashed in on me. The worries that I have been carrying about members of my family became overwhelming. It was as if I fell into a dark hole. The thing is being in the hole helped me. I let go of all the emotion that had been bottled up. I cried over it and it helped.

Sometimes we just need to recognize that some things are worth crying over. There is sadness and pain and things going wrong and we can’t fix it. Crying is a kind of acknowledgement that it is real and won’t change right away. It is a reminder that we are not in charge of the world and the control is not ours. This kind of letting go allows us to reach out to the one who is in charge and let all the worry and pain be assuaged.

Matthew 11:28 

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Things don’t always work out the way we want. Lives can be damaged and burdens hard to carry but we don’t have to do it on our own.

One thought on “Let go”

  1. I am very sorry to hear that things have been so challenging, but you are right! Sometimes, we need to stop holding things in and instead release (at least in part) that which grieves. Even if our circumstances haven’t changed, we may feel a little better because we alleviated some of the emotional pressure that was building within us.

    I will be praying for you. ✝️
