We are so much like this little guy in our lives, always storing and putting away things that we need and want. This external searching-looking to anything other than love to complete us and to be the source of our happiness–is the meaning of idolatry. But they never really fill us the way that learning to let go and let God will, because when you surrender control to Him, you stop “fighting for yours” and things will fall in their natural, perfect order. An order that has worked from the beginning of time. When you learn to let love be your prayer in everything to do, you realize that time spent on earth is not difficult as it once seemed when you were battling against every one of your responsibilities and seeking an escape. A life of love is safe and wonderful. When we surrender to God, we let go of the attachment to how things happen on the outside and we become more concerned with what happens on the inside.
