The minute I typed in the title for this post the song from Frozen started to play in my head. No this post is not about letting your snow powers unleash or belting a song at the top of your lungs. However, the song is great, the movie is great. Go see it!
This weekend while I was on my work retreat we had a devotion time Saturday morning. Each staff member was given a stack of 5 envelopes. We were to go through them in silence and do exactly what the envelopes said. There were multiple things throughout the letters that really spoke to me and stood out to me. Yet, the one thing that has stuck with me the most was a little saying. I don’t know what letter it was on, or what the rest of the letter was about but this little phrase really helped me.
“Let go of 2013”
Just let that statement sink in for a minute….let go, Let Go, LET GO! That is so hard for me. It has been really hard. I have so many happy good memories in 2013. Yet, I cannot hold onto them anymore. 2013 is over. I am new. I am blank. I am single..
I have no regrets of 2013, and I honestly enjoyed my year. Yet, looking back I can’t think of anything without Donny involved. So now I must let go. I must move forward into 2014 strong and courageous. I must look ahead knowing that God has a plan. He has my heart and he is directing my path.
I am not the only one who has ended 2013 off on a sour note. I am sure many of you were happy to leave 2013 behind. I was not so happy at what I had to leave behind. However, I cannot focus on that. There is no reason to hold onto the past anymore. It isn’t going to come back.
So here’s to letting go and letting God.
