“To let go is to fear less and love more!”
We are afraid all the time. We fear what might happen next with our child. We fear the “dreaded phone call”. We fear that we are going crazy. We fear that we might never see our child or grandchildren again. We fear what might happen when our child gets out of jail or rehab. The list goes on and on. We lay awake at night being fearful and we wake up in the morning fearing what the day will bring. This is not what we thought our lives would be and certainly not what we signed up for when we became a mom.
But, what if we begin to trust God with all the things for which we are afraid? What if we make a conscious decision to let go of our fear and allow Him to hold us AND our children in his more than capable hands? He can and will deliver us from our fears . . . if we will allow Him to. Meditate on the verse in Psalm 27:1 where is says, “The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid?”
If we can learn, with God’s help, to fear less, we will have room in our lives to love more. We will have more space to love the other members of our families better. We will be able to love and show compassion to others who are suffering and may be less fortunate than we are. We will have room to love ourselves more so that we can be the women that He intends for us to be.
Start today! Fear less and love more!
