No. 118 - Letting Go

The theme of the past few days of my life has seemed to be letting go. I feel as if I have been brought to a place more often than not of putting aside the things I rely on and trust in for my security. People will always let you down. Media is shallow and fake. Fashion is ever-changing. Money is unstable. I am not saying all this to be bitter and cynical. I am saying this to challenge myself to look at where my priorities are. Where do I spend my time? Who do I go to for advice? How do I carry myself in public? Weighty questions, yes, but necessary questions in the process of letting go.

"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever." 1 John 2:15-17
