Recently we were confronted with the thought of signing DNR papers for our loved one. Our emotions felt unbearable. How do you let someone you love go? How do you know you have done everything you can? With faith and the support of loved ones you attempt to make the best decision you can with the information before you.
You reach into the deepest places of your heart then you release your needs, your pain and your desires. You look for what the loved one would feel, need and want. Then you attempt in the best way you can to “let go and let God.” You simply surrender. Then you find yourself in the midst of a miracle that you cannot explain or understand.
The transformation process; is releasing or letting go, allowing God to take whatever, whoever, whichever, etc. and creating something new with it. It is allowing something to change so much that it is no longer the same. It is a dying of the old and a birthing of the new. We see this in the metamorphosis of the butterfly and the chicken being hatched from an egg.
This also caused us to look at things in our life that could require a DNR.
- The relationships that we need to release.
- The job we should let go.
- The status and positions that no longer serves us.
- Living in the past rather than embracing the present.
These things keep you sedated and in a self-induced coma, where there is no quality of life. Examine your heart, and determine if you are holding on because this is best or for selfish reasons. In the bible Abraham chose to lay down his son Isaac and trust God.
Sometimes you must let something’s go and trust what is best for you will be returned. We have to make sure that we focus on what is being done and not on what is being avoided. In other words, we allow love to show us the truth, that becomes our focus, not what we think we will lose in the process.
So once again we encourage you to do the work. Determine what you should “DNR” and be willing to “let go and let God.”
