Daily Word for Feb. 7

Let Go, Let God

When I let go and let God, I take the path of a peacemaker.

If someone says or does something that causes me grief, I have a choice to make: Do I let it affect my attitude or do I bless the situation with a silent prayer and let go? The obvious choice would be to let it go, bur that choice isn’t necessarily the easiest one. So I find a safe place to rest my mind and heart.

Turning to God in prayer, I remind myself that I am upset by the person’s action, not the person. Despite any angst I may feel, this person, too, is a child of God. I bless him or her and let the situation go, affirming: I release my concerns into God’s care and keeping.

Rather than reacting, I respond in a positive way. By choosing to let go and let God, I am taking the path of peacemaker.

Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes Lord.”: -Matthew 9:28
