And Release

If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you’ll lose it, but if you let that life go, you’ll get life on God’s terms. (‭Luke‬ ‭17‬:‭31-33‬ MSG)

Hold on tight. When that rides about to begin this is one of those phrases we hear quite often and eventually just becomes second nature. It goes against all natural sense to enjoy the ride with your hands in the air, arms raised heavenward. It may add some excitement but it maybe adds a little bit of scariness too.

When it comes to the way God wants us to live we have to go against what seems right. We have to not hold tight. We have to let go. It’s the scary ride, hands free, releasing your life into Gods hands. It takes faith to live this way. It involves trusting God, completely.

Hold on tight to your life and you lose it.

Release the grip on your life and you live it.

Me in control or God? I know which one brings the best out of me despite it being the tougher, less natural choice.
