There are moments in every relationship when we can allow ourselves to be motivated by the fear of loss. In these situations, we find ourselves trying to preserve a relationship that actually needs to die before it can live. Attempting to hold onto the status quo of these relationships will only leave you with the mummified corpse of something that has no hope of life unless a resurrection takes place. Only when you give God these dead relationships is resurrection life possible. This requires that you let go and no longer hold on in fear. Letting go is your act of faith and the beginning of something new.
