Letting go only happens when we recognize not everything is about me. Literally everything, every breath, heartbeat, meal, relationship or success is a gift from God. Because of this need to recognize we are utterly dependent upon Him for everything. This reality is counterintuitive and difficult to understand mainly because we live in an individualistic, competitive, and consumer society. But the truth is your life does not really belong to you. You belong to God. It is in giving of our lives to God that we receive. This is what Jesus modeled for us through His life, death, and resurrection. Luke 6v38 (The Message) Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back, given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Giving or holding on is a tough choice somedays but if we understand the abundance of the Kingdom we wont need to hold onto the temporal because giving has an eternal quality that is much more attractive.
