Letting Go

Written by Ann Marie "Ree" Brown
October 27, 2003


Letting go of pain I feel
Seems harder than I know
The hurt was caused
The pain I felt
Not wanting to let go

The anger there deep down inside
Yearning to break free
Let out the frustration
All built up
So I can clearly see

See that you have changed so much
That you did it for our love
So we can move onward
And live our lives
And serve the one above



Letting go is something very hard for me to do and forgiveness can come easy with some people and harder with others. In marriage, I find the hardest time letting go of anger. Somehow with other people, I forgive so easily, but the opposite is true with a loving relationship with a man. My husband is the person I find the hardest time forgiving. Luckily, in respect to this, he has learned to have patience.

Writing is an outlet when anger overwhelms me. God gave me a gift to express feelings on paper and I use that gift when my feelings are strong. There are many times writing has carried me through and calmed me down. This calm after the storm is the time when I usually pray for the Lord's guidance. When I let go and give God my cares and worries, He is there every time. This feeling is expressed so well in one of my favorite passages:

"Be full of joy in the Lord always. I will say again, be full of joy. Let everyone see that you are gentle and kind. The Lord is coming soon. Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always give thanks. And God's peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:4-7, NCV)

When everything we do is for the Lord and when we hold onto his promise real tight it is by God's that helps calm the angry storms that sometimes overwhelm us. Thank you for sharing. Your Sister in Christ,Julie Pisacane
