Letting Go

How many of us have been in the same position as the little girl in the picture above?  We are holding on so tightly to something we love that we cannot possibly let it go…even if it means missing out on receiving something even better.  God gently encourages us to trust Him and we, like the little girl protest and cling even tighter to whatever it is we so desperately want to keep.  When God asks us to trust Him enough to give up something, He never does it to be mean.   He never takes anything away from us just to leave us empty-handed.  He never asks us to give Him something without the full intention of giving us something far greater than we had to start with.  Giving up the things we hold dear when God asks us to is never an easy thing to do, but by clinging so tightly, we miss out on even greater blessings that God has in store for us.  Trust Him…He will never disappoint you!

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; lean not on your own understanding…” Proverbs 3:5
