Managing the Fear of Letting Go

Sometimes we need to acknowledge the pain we have experienced.

Sometimes we need to give ourselves permission to grieve.

But never should we stay in the place of darkness that accompanies pain and grief.

I say this with deep compassion. I know grief. I know pain. I know my past and I know the scars I have.

But I also know that unless I make the decision to cross over the sea of fear that presses against me I will never be able to step into a life that remembers the past but does not bring it with me.

So, my dear friends, I implore you. Do not stay in the darkness. Do not linger there. Yes, acknowledge your pain; let your grieving arise but then give it to Jesus for in him is the only relief. In him is the truth of who you are. In him are the answers you seek.

It’s time to move on.

Thanks to WordPorn for the thoughts…

 

Say goodbye to that which has held you bound and imprisoned you and then, when you’ve crossed over, do as Miriam did and dance and worship before God, the one who sets us free.

Love and be loved,

 

Miriam
