Let Go

A happy young child plays in a pile of autumn's fallen leaves

Now on the first day you shall take for yourselves the foliage of beautiful trees, palm branches and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.—Leviticus 23:40 NIV

Look to the autumn trees and the scattered leaves on the ground and be inspired to let go of the weight of past hurts and disappointments. Release feelings of jealousy and worry that block you from God’s presence.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, help me shed thoughts and feelings that hinder my faith and block Your love.
