Letting Go…..



 
 
     This I believe is the most personal thing I have read to date. This is me to the T… I have been so afraid that something would happen to my little boy that it has paralyzed me and in turn paralyzed him. It is so bad, that I don’t even like him to go outside to play. (I think crazy thoughts like he will get hit by a car, etc.) when I know I have no control over what happens to him. Its a form of

Idolatry that I am guilty of. This morning God had a talk with me, and I through tears released him back to God for he was His to begin with. I know this stems from my mom losing her son, and me watching it nearly destroy her. Sorry this is so long but in Jesus Calling touched my heart this morning, like it was written for me so here it is:

      “Entrust your loved ones to me; release them into My protective care. They are much safer with Me than in your clinging hands. If you let a loved one become an idol your heart, you endanger that one-as well as yourself. Remember the extreme measures I used with Abraham and Isaac. I took Isaac to the very point of death to free Abraham from son-worshiping. Both Abraham and Isaac suffered terribly because of the father’s undisciplined emotions. I detest idolatry, even in the form of parental love. When you release loved ones to Me, you are free to cling to My hand. As you entrust others into My care, I am free to shower blessings on them. My Presence will go with them wherever they go, and I will give them rest. This same Presence stays with you, as you relax and place your trust in Me, Watch to see what I will do.” Jesus Calling
