It’s Friday. The day we write together for five shared and sacred minutes. The prompt this week is RELEASE. The details for how to participate are over here. And the post today? It’s why I think you need to keep writing no matter how many voices in your head and your life tell you that you’re not a “real” writer because your audience is invisibly small, or because you haven’t written a book or because you aren’t invited to speaking events or because no one reads you outside of your family. Read on below and then just. keep. writing. - Lisa Jo
One of the first things she learned to do was grab, grasp, hold tight...
Coincidental that it's one of the first things we do in our sinful nature...I don't think so.
But we continue on as we grow up...
holding tight to the toys that we don't want to share
clinging on to mom/dad that we don't want to leave
grasping at friends who will stay by our side
storing up possessions that we "need"
grabbing at the best position, the newest promotion
and what's the Lord saying?
let it go
raise your hands
surrender it all
release it to Me
ask and you shall receive
How can we receive any of those good and perfect gifts if we have our hands raised and clenched tight??
We must have them open, palms up, everything offered to Him who owns all things
