Year 8-Day 260: Today, I am grateful for lessons in letting go."Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward." -C.S. Lewis
I remember the monkey bars on our Clifton Elementary School playground. We loved to spend recess playing on the monkey bars. I earned a few blisters on my hands playing while conquering new tricks. I loved climbing.
Mastering the monkey bars requires finding the courage to let go. In letting go, we finally move forward. Pain is a part of living, but it doesn't have to be a constant companion.
So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” -Deuteronomy 31:6
Our God is a Mighty God! He won't abandon His children. We can find the courage to let go, so we can swing to the next rung.
What monkey bars are you trying to cross? Maybe it is a new job, a new neighborhood or a new way of celebrating the "Pumpkin Festival. On step at a time. Be content.
