Letting Go

Oftentimes we hold on to things that really do not matter in the big picture. Sometimes it takes a little reminder to place all of our lives into perspective. Your faith in Jesus is of ultimate importance. Hold on to it daily and watch the miracles unfold.

Listen to this week’s insightful message of hope and clarity accompanied by original piano music.

  • Julie Trevino says:

    I truly enjoyed this narrative story and the beautiful piano music took it to a higher level.

    First thought after listening to this story was a saying that I’ve heard, “let go and Let God.”
    Father Bob used to always asks the congregation “have you ever seen a U-Haul behind the hearse?” Everyone would laugh but he was right. It’s hard for some people to let go of earthly things. We must always have faith and trust in God. I’m constantly telling my (adult) children this…and sometimes my Facebook friends!
    Lord Jesus I trust in You!

    • Caro says:

      Absolutely spot on, Julie, and thank you for the time in responding to our latest Podcast. I think the challenge for many people is that they become accustomed to their surroundings and the things that they collect that these things begin to define them. I remember one day going into someone’s office and seeing a cross on the wall (very similar to the one) that I had lost years earlier. Kindly I asked if he would part with it after seeing literally hundreds of them on his wall to which he adamantly refused. Recently he was forced to move taking an absorbent amount of time packing all the things he amassed over the years. Yesterday I heard from a friend that the box containing all these art objects was lost in transit. These are my “takeaways”: I should never have even asked for something that was not mine and should have prayed for detachment, and second, eventually we all must part with our silly possessions and the older we get the better is to practice letting go as our podcast suggests. Thank you so very much, Julie, and God bless you always. Read you next time!

  • Tony Montez says:

    Since entering my sixth decade of life I’ve become more aware that most of my is over. There are more sunrises in my past than there are in my future. This beautiful story resonates joyfully in my heart as I let go the things that are not of love. Something I’ve been reminded of through the eyes of a granddaughter child. Thank you for this story and music.

    • Caro says:

      Tony, I just read your comment and was quite moved by your expressive tone and depth of wisdom. Of course I can and completely resonate with it all. How blessed is the present moment. Let us drink it all in while we have today. Life is pretty awesome, wouldn’t you say?

  • Margo says:

    This is phenomenal!!! I absolutely loved it! And the message is so true!! Letting go of things that don’t matter could free us from so much pain. Unfortunately, we forget to turn to God when this happens. Thank you for this reminder, as I know I have to “let go” of things that aren’t worth the pain.

    • Caro says:

      Oh wow, Margo, thank you for your response. Letting go of all the things that are not worth the pain is indeed true wisdom for all of us to share and pass on.

    What a beautiful gospel. Reminds me of mass when I was young. The piano and perfect pitch . Thank you for this very much needed message. This is a wonderful audible version. I hope they continue in this format.

    A very powerful and very relatable way to share the Gospel message.

      “The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.”

  • Kristen says:

    Oh, this is absolutely beautiful, from the piano to the narration. I felt as if I was there watching this story unfold.

    In a time when many of us are feeling we are grasping onto anything we can out of fear of losing control, we forget that God is in ~full~ control so long as you trust in Him. I, myself, have stumbled many times questioning my faith in the most difficult of times, only to find in the end that God never left my side and led me to a field of peace which, for a time, I thought I’d never see.

    The music combined with this lovely piece of literature brings the whole scene together, and adds a new element to the way we can step closer to Him.

    Thank you for this!

    • Caro says:

      Thank you very much Kristen, for your customary insightful responses and addition to our pages here. We all certainly appreciate them. You are so on target as you call us back to remember and live courageously because God is indeed in control. I am grateful to you and many of our readers who are so generous with their time and kind words. Let us all move together with the strength that comes from the Gospel, always.

      “The only thing a person can ever really do is keep moving forward. Take that big leap forward without hesitation, without once looking back. Simply forget the past and forge toward the future.” – Alyson Noel

  • Mary Ann Ramos says:

    Oh WOW! The narrator’s soothing voice along with the beautiful piano music made listening to this mediation so enjoyable! We all cling to material things and even people. This story is a helpful reminder that what God has prepared for us in Heaven is way beyond anything we could desire or imagine for ourselves. I also love how Scripture is brought together with story. I will definitely share this with family and friends! Thank you!

    • Caro says:

      Thank you very much, Mary Ann for your kind response and commentary to our very first “podcast.”! God has indeed prepared a great place for all of us, which is the great meaning of our wonderful Feast of the Assumption yesterday. God bless you and all your family and all those you love. “It’s not a matter of letting go – you would if you could. Instead of “Let it go” we should probably say “Let it be”. – Jon Kabat-Zinn

  • Veronica Altamirano says:

    Beautiful message! Thank you for the reminder!

  • Anonymous says:

    As time goes on things change, people behave and act differently and both things and people get older, yet only some people get wiser. And some hold on to things so long that we don’t realize that the things mattered most to us in the beginning have evolved into something that might not have appealed to us when it was first bought or inherited or given to us. Let us be open to the Holy Spirit to see what God wants to do in our life because God never runs out of ideas that will bring pleasure and joy in our lives. Release what you hold onto and has caused burden and pain so God can do what he is famous for and replace with the NEW!

    • Caro says:

      Yes, dear friend, you are absolutely correct. Unfortunately getting old tends to have us hold on to things that we think we must have in order to be happy, But in the end, we lose so much that the only thing we have left is our faith in God and the hope that it brings to us on a daily basis. Thank you so much for commenting. Prayers for prayers!

    • Caro says:

      “There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.”

  • Oh my goodness, what a beautiful story! I love the new audio presentation. Having broken my dominant wrist recently, and having had surgery, this audio version made it more feasible to maneuver. Thank you for the reminder that we are not of this earth, but belong to a greater kingdom. In the meantime, may our minds, hearts, and hands, remain cleansed of all earthly things. Again, thank you for this absolutely beautiful story!

    • Caro says:

      God bless you, Sandy, and Godspeed on your quick and lasting recovery from surgery. Thank you for reminding us all we are certainly not of this earth that we were indeed made for a different world.

  • Margie Lancaster says:

    I really like the new audio format. It allows me to listen to the story, message and music over and over again. If we let go of that which we love the most, our Lord will bring it back to us. The piano composition is gorgeous and the message gives me peace and comfort during these difficult times. Thank you so much!

    • Caro says:

      Margie, Welcome back to these pages and thank you so much for the time to let us know how you appreciate the new format. I am so grateful that this brings you comfort.

  • April says:

    • Caro says:

      Thank you so very much, April! We all certainly appreciate your response.
