I may be failing at everything I’m trying to do, but I just cannot seem to let go. I will not let go! My daily struggles continue whether I’m hanging on to God or not. It continues because I’m hanging on tighter to my past, status, success, and not holding on tightly enough to Jesus.
I think I’m afraid to let go because it would mean I don’t have anything to focus on, other than God and my self-defined failure. If I let go, I’m giving up and that seems to have a negative feeling. Truthfully though, I’m starting to think it is in no way related to giving up, but it’s more aligned with the level of my faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
So, why can I not take that step in faith?
Why am I holding on to the world so tightly?
That all changed the moment I decided to take this verse to heart and release all my worries, stress, responsibilities, doubts, and fears.
My hands have released everything I was holding on to – and what have I discovered? Now, I have two hands available to hang on to my God, my Savior, my Father in Heaven.
I WILL NOT LET GO!
And I absolutely, without a doubt, refuse to release hold of my Lord.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
