Let Go: Leaving Behind What We Don't Need
Stretching to the fullness of new potential, the butterfly begins to sense the
calling to new heights. Expansion of wings, however, means something profound
— it cannot ever go back into the cocoon. Not even if it wanted to. And so it is
time to leave it behind. The Israelites that left Egypt were aching for freedom and
yet when faced with the disorientation of all that was new and familiar, many
began crying to go back. Letting go of the past requires deep trust in the God
who has promised to be with us always.
