When letting go means having more

letting go, more

Do you struggle setting boundaries? Do you find yourself hurt by the same people or similar situations over and over again?

Me too.

Or at least, I did. I have.

And the truth is I probably will again because I’m awfully prone to forgetting.

But the lesson I am learning is the art of letting go. The practice of setting things and people free.

You see, we weren’t meant to be caged.

And maybe like you, I believe God has been providing me with opportunities throughout my life to learn this lesson.

But I’ve held on for dear life.

To people. Things. To dreams, expectations, desires and demands.

Oh, how they bring us down. How our stubborn desire to hold on tightly will backfire on us every single time.

I’m learning that we have to let go in order to truly have that which is ours. That if what we want is only ours by our holding it tightly, then it was never meant for us.

If people walk away from you or things are taken from your tightly gripped fist, perhaps they were never meant for you, your life, or your heart.

Perhaps the only way we truly know what we desire is by letting it go freely. Allowing our hearts to know the pain of loss, the comfort of grace and the fullness of His unfailing love.

Maybe…just maybe…letting go is actually holding more.

More space.

More room.

More grace and freedom to be and do and live and breathe that which is us, now, in this very moment.

Letting go. Having less.

Perhaps this is our more.

What do you need to let go of in order to have more?
