Our Mistress of Ceremonies for the Five Minute Friday is Kate over at Heading Home. Hope you link up with us and join the fun.
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah 41:13 (King James)
I'm so tired of hearing that!
What to do with a life that has been on hold. Do I continue to hold--hold on to unfulfilled dreams, empty promises, and empty arms? Or do I let go--acquiesce to the disappointment and live in the shadows of other's fulfilling lives? Hold it! That doesn't sound like me. I'll keep holding.
What to do with stuff I've held onto for too long. Anger, jealousy, bitterness, hurt, offense, shame, self hatred, grief--those are the things to stop holding. It's like holding a pee for too long. If I continue to hold, it will cause damage (especially if I keep adding to it), then just explode all over me for all to see. If I get in the right place to let it go, it's so refreshing. Plus, I can flush it away and never have to see it again.
