Letting go is so important and so hard to do. For someone who manages and controls their own life it seems impossible. Trust me it’s a daily practice for me and one that I need to get better at.
Letting go means that you have to trust your higher power. The outcome to whatever you’re struggling with is not in your control. No massive amount of worrying will make it happen.
We can’t receive God’s blessings if we’re anxious, fearful, obsessive or whatever.
I found this prayer last week from the site, Guided Christian Meditation (I know I’m Jewish but prayer is prayer) – I hope this helps you to let go of whatever you’re holding on to.
In this moment, I let go of all thoughts and concerns.
When I let go, I am able to receive.
When my hands are formed into tight fists, I cannot open my hands to receive anything.
When I hang onto tight control,
When I close off my heart and my spirit,
I cannot receive your blessings for me.
I let go to receive your blessings.
Letting go in this moment, I receive your loving presence around me and within me.
Help me to let go when I am feeling overwhelmed, so that I may receive your peace.
Help me to let go when I feel fear so that in fear’s place I may receive love and courage.
I let go of problems and challenges in order to receive your guidance and clarity.
I let go and trust you.
I will not fall.
You will catch me.
I let go and trust in the still, small voice inside of me.
Help me not to struggle but to surrender my struggle to you.
I gladly receive this gift of letting go and letting you lead me and guide me.
