I release; I forgive; I am free and at peace.

Cleaning out a drawer or closet brings a sense of order and satisfaction. Letting go of what is no longer needed makes room for what is fresh and new.

Similarly, I can choose to keep or release the stored feelings and replayed thoughts that occupy my mind. Old feelings of resentment or blame serve no useful purpose; rather, they weigh heavily on my mind and body and hold me back. If I find it difficult to let go, I call upon God's grace to free me from the weight of unforgiveness.

Gently, I accept God's help. I let go, knowing this is not my burden to carry. I forgive myself and others and open the way to freedom and peace of mind and heart.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.--Luke 6:37
