Let go and let God

Sharings from an Orthodox Christian social worker based in Southeast Michigan.

The fear of God illumines the soul, annihilates evil, weakens the passions, drives darkness from the soul and makes it pure. The fear of God is the summit of wisdom. Where it is not you will find nothing good. Whoever does not have the fear of God is open to diabolical falls.

—St Isaac of Syria (via theorthodoxbrit)
