Time for another Five-Minute Friday… As I read the prompt for this week, my heart screamed out “No. No. Not yet!”.
RELEASE, is the word for the week, but not for this day. For this hour it’s not the word I wanted to hear.
My daughter and her family have been visiting for the past week from Michigan. What a blessing to, spend Easter with smiling faces, jelly beans, and chocolate bunnies. From hugs and hugs and more hugs, from the beginning to the end, and even then a few more in-between, how their free spirits continue to light up our world.
But today — this very day, I had to RELEASE them to their journey ahead — twenty hours of driving with a ten, eight and a three-year-old half groggy and asleep.
We all know how easy it is to say or sing the song, “Let it go… Let it go,” but oh so hard to do. The road, the traffic and yes with kids the antsyness and complaining that will rise up as they head homeward bound.
But as difficult as it may be, I need to tell myself and believe as I RELEASE them to God, that He is big enough to protect them every mile of the way.
Are you like me? Do you have something that is out of your control today? Do you wish that you too could be the one in the driver seat, but there’s just no way?
If so, I know it’s a difficult thing to do as your heart-strings are being stretched beyond human consumption, but come along with me, and let it go. Place it into the hands of the one who is big enough to carry it. Then, when you finally RELEASE it all to Him, rest in His peace that will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
Continued blessings to you as you RELEASE your worries to Him 🙂
