Let It Go

An oft repeated song the past months is from Disney’s movie, Frozen, the song “Let it go”.

I know it’s not easy but if only we could have an attitude of “Let go and let God” I believe our lives will be much easier (I’m preaching to myself as well here).

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. ” Proverbs 3:5-6

When I was single, I often prayed (or begged) that the Lord will give me a lifetime partner. Frustrated was a mild word to describe how I felt, because age was catching up and all my friends were getting married, except me. When I reached 40 years old, I sort of thrown in the towel. I gave up my “dream” of marrying and flew off to the US to live a happy, single life at the Big Apple. After a while, I felt in my heart that this was not “the life” that I wanted so I came back home and went back to work where I used to. There, I rekindled a friendship with an old chum which blossomed to a love affair. Shortly after, we got married, and the rest is history.

God is in control.

Oftentimes, we make plans but they fail and we get hurt and frustrated. Later on, we realize that it wasn’t meant to be in the first place. Life is a journey of letting go.

“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Luke 22 :42

Lent is a beautiful season of grace. During this time, we are encouraged to pray and reflect about our life’s pilgrimage and hope that in the end, we shall have eternal joy with God.
