God holds you tight.
Right within Him, He holds you.
He holds your now, your past, and your future.
Navigating your path, He holds you securely.
Can’t see what’s ahead?
His hand will guide you.
Fumbling around like there’s nothing to hold onto?
He’s right behind you, so it’s ok to let go.
Let everything go.
Let your burdens go.
One by one, place them into His capable hands.
Frustrated? Throw them down at His feet.
He doesn’t care how you do it, just give your burdens to Him.
And when you release the burdens, trust Him.
Trust Him for your everything.
Here’s a picture of trust.
Recently, I volunteered to harness myself to a high rope, trusting not only the people, but the materials to hoist myself safely high into the air.
Panicking in mid-air, I asked to be let down closer to the ground before choosing to release myself to a safe swinging motion.
I had nothing to hold onto.
I had to let go.
That was the only option to feeling my feet once again on the safe ground.
I let go.
And I was fine.
It’s the same way with God.
Sometimes we have no vision of the future, or solid ground for our feet.
We only have God and trusting His vision for our future.
Your choice is this: to trust and let go or hang on for dear life with your own strength.
Choose to let go and let God have His way.
Yes, it might be scary, but with God next to you, there is absolutely nothing to fear.
Say no to fear and choose to let God be your everything.
I’d much rather choose God then relying on my strength alone.
But it takes guts. Real life guts.
But it’s so worth it.
Face your fears.
Face your what if’s.
Because those are nothing compared to a future with God.
Let go of what is secure and let God hold you instead.
