Let Go of the Package

let it go2package1Let go of the package. I think it has been held on to for far too long. You have worried about the same thing over and over and you have let it keep you up at night and take away valuable minutes in your day. You have gone over and over it in your mind trying to figure out how it will turn out, trying to figure out what you should do about it. And I have done this also. I have good news for us. I know exactly what we should do. It is very simple and very wise. Just let go of that package. If it is sickness, lack, pain, concern over children, fear of the future, regret of the past, lack of confidence, lack of money, lack of ability, frustration, aggravation, package2unforgiveness, wrong self-image, addiction to something you don’t want in your life or if it is sin, doubt, or unbelief, let it go. Some of these packages were handed to us as children. Some of them we picked up ourselves along the way. The thing to do is simple and sure, but as many things are, it is easier said than done. Yet there are bigger Hands that can handle it. It is much too heavy for us, and actually the longer we hold it, the heavier it gets.

No matter how difficult it might seem, simply let go of it. I can see it now because I’ve done it myself; we finally get the courage to release the package that we have held tightly to our chest for so long, and we slowly lift it up to the One who can take it from us. He gently reaches out and places His big hands on it. We hold on tightly still. “Let go,” He gently says. We wait, we hold, we look into His eyes, and finally we let go, and we are free. package3let it go1

  1. It took me long enough, but I finally learned to let go and allow God to deal with the things of life so I could enjoy each day. Today, I am grateful for fresh vegetables, a full plate and clean water.
