Love: Letting It Go

Saturday, December 27, 2008 read close 2 speaks

To "let go" does not mean to stop caring.
  it means I can't do it for someone else.

To "let go" is not to cut myself off.
  it's the realization that I can't control another.

To "let go" is to admit powerlessness,
  which means the outcome is not in my hands.

To "let go" is not to try to change or blame another.
  it's to make the most of myself.

To "let go" is not to care for,
  but to care about.

To "let go" is not to fix,
  but to be supportive.

To "let go" is not to judge,
  but to allow another to be a human being.

To "let go" is not to be in the middle, arranging all the outcomes,
  but to allow others to affect their own destinies.

To "let go" is not to deny,
  but to accept.

To "let go" is not to nag, scold, or argue,
  but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

To "let go" is not to adjust everything to my desires,
  but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.

To "let go" is not to regret the past,
  but to grow and live for the future.

To "let go" is to fear less
  and to love more.

At most, letting go is really a matter of being more loving and kinder to ourselves and others,
  within the horizon of what we can be and cannot be, of what we can do and cannot do -- to the best of what we are and who we are.

Love: Looking back

Two weeks back sermon was on 1 Corinthians 13. Last week's agape was on 1 John 4:20-21.

Reflecting back of these two months, I've realised how little I knew of myself - especially the emotional side of me, that I always thought it is at a very minimum level as often I was being labeled as doing things more rational than being emotional.

The fact of life, putting into action in contrast of understanding about love is nevertheless a great lesson for this year. The pain caused by struggles not only in teaching about love, but living as one is enormously great. I supposed the first thing to learn in "walking the talk" is about forgiveness. The true act of forgiveness, as what D.A. Carson mentioned, reflects the true understanding of salvation given to us by Christ Jesus Himself.

It's Christmas, soon. Looking back, this year indeed past with a blink of an eye.

Wishes a great Christmas holiday to all my dearest family and friends - may the true meaning of Christmas brings you joy forever!
