Happy Sunday! This fall I have seen a picture of fall leaves that says, "Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let go." It reminded me of this verse from Isaiah. Folks, we love to hang onto to all kinds of things that Jesus wants us to let go of--anger and resentment, guilt and shame, bad habits, unhealthy relationships--the list could go on and on. The work Jesus did on the cross allows us to let go of the old things, to forget them, and to look forward to new and better things. It is not easy to let go of the old and familiar, even if it is painful, because it is comfortable and what we know. The new is unknown and can be scary. But, I promise you, if you give it to Jesus, if you let it go, it will be beautiful and God will work something new and wonderful in your life.
