Reflections on my walk with God

Letting go

Leave a comment

It is almost 16 years since my lovely Mum died of breast cancer. I am grieving again – the pain of loss has hit me hard and I am surprised after all this time that’s it is still there grinding away. I have given it to God so many times …and then taken it back. We are clearing Mum and Dad’s house – he is still with us but moved into a residential home. Going through all of their possessions has taken me back in time. The pain is immense, the loss immeasurable. I weep while I write and need to let go one more time.
For good.

I need to let go

Let go of the past

Let go of the pain of loss

Let go of the stuff that clutters my life

Let go of the things that bind me to the past

Let go of the self-image that is not real

Let go of the what-ifs and if-onlys

Let go of the things that hinder my growth in God

Let go of self so that I can embrace Christ

Just let go … And let God

Updated April 2017! When I started this blog I was very much a "young" Christian and still very much finding my way. This year I celebrate my 10th rebirth day in June and so must think of myself as at least an adolescent Christian, but this blog is still about my meandering walk with God. I became a Mother at 41 - and that colours much of how I live my life. When asked at about 4 what Mummy's most important job was, my daughter did not hesitate to say" Looking after me". I will drop anything that I am doing if my family needs me. My family come first and I think of myself as Mother, Wife, daughter, sister, teacher - in that order. I am currently having a “Gap year” – I left my teaching job with my Husband’s blessing and very much in answer to God’s prompting in August 2016. I am now looking and waiting for God to reveal His plan for my life.
