I let go of the past and explore new possibilities.
Sending children off to college or watching loved ones leave in service to their country may feel as though we are releasing them into a vast unknown. Letting go is much easier when we know that those so precious to us, no matter where they go, are enfolded in the presence of God.
Each time we or our loved ones follow our dreams and set new goals, we do so in the presence of God. We let go of old ways and explore new possibilities. As we focus on the unlimited opportunities we have to express our inner qualities, we step forward and act on them. Soon the unfamiliar becomes familiar, which inspires us to keep going.
To this end we always pray for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfill by his power every good resolve and work of faith.—2 Thessalonians 1:11
