Opening Prayer: Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you want to do a new work in me. Help me to make room for that work by letting go of the old. Please give me the strength and the grace and courage to do so. Amen.
Scripture: Ezekiel 36:26
Journal: What old do you need to let go of, in order to make room for the new God wants to do in you?
My Dear Child,
Why do you hold on so tightly to those old and familiar ways of being that stifle and limit and hinder my life within you? Why do you refuse to let go of those old patterns and habits, in order that you might finally experience the newness and the life and the freedom I so desperately want for you? You can’t have your cake and eat it too. You can’t keep holding on to the old and expect to be able to receive the new. Receiving requires open hands. Thus, letting go is a prerequisite.
Closing Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to let go of the old, in order to be able to receive the new you want to do in me. Amen.
