Let It Go #2

92. Let It Go #2

Just a couple of days ago I wrote about L.I.G. which stands for Let It Go. And I wrote those words referring to frustration, obsessing, being critical. And I’d like to continue the concept further—a lot further. I’d like to put it into the realm of discipleship.

When Jesus said, “Love your enemy,” ultimately he was also saying that there’s some stuff you’re going to have let go of. And when he said, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” and then gave an example of where the neighbor was someone you usually didn’t even speak to, once again to really do that you’re going to have to let some more stuff go.

What I’m slowly figuring out is that since love is the predominant force that we as disciples are being asked to use, then whenever we come up against all those feelings, emotions, frustrations that are pretty far away from love, we are also being asked to let go of them to make the room within ourselves for love.

Here are the words to a chant I wrote within the last week:

Make room for love,

Live life with love,

And when some other enters in

Let go—shake off—strip down,

And breathe in love.
