The Truth of ‘Letting Go’

Just a nugget for those struggling with letting go . . .

“A person cannot move from their past hurts, regrets, or their sins until that person takes the first step of grasping ahold of (receiving) and walking in (experiencing) God’s love.

It is one thing for a person to say ‘I’m over it’ or ‘Yes, I’ve let it go’ or  ‘I’ve dealt with it’ or “Wait . . . I’ve changed’.

Walking in God’s love is not done by mere words but by trusting Him to love you.  To fully know that you have been set free is to know that you have taken ahold of God’s forgiving restorative love by receiving and experiencing it.

His love allows you, once you experience it, to love others unconditionally.  When placed into action God is able to heal, restore, turn any and all situations around for your life.”

    I had a response today from someone that was quite interesting. The jest of what they were saying was that ‘letting go’ has nothing to do with God’s love but with our ego. My response was the following It takes the love of Christ to forgive ourselves and to forgive others whether we feel we have the right to hold a grudge towards a wrong or not. The strength to ‘letting go’ comes from the foundation of Christ’s love for us and in turn gives us the strength to forgive. We cannot ‘let go’ of something that is deep rooted within us without forgiving ourselves or others. Forgiveness is driven by the love of Chirst and gives us the ability to release us from shame and guilt or the feeling of regret. All of which are self-righteous ‘ego’ driven emotions that control us from having the mind of Christ in all things and keep us from loving unconditionally. Jesus Christ loved unconditionally as should we – which means we leave the ‘ego’ behind us.”
