I’m in the grip of His grace.
I find myself wanting to hold tightly to the way things were. It seems like this season has come too soon, and I wasn’t fully prepared for it in my heart. Is one ever really prepared for change? I say that I have surrendered my will and my way to the Lord, Yet my fists are clenched tight as I try to hold on to even the smallest portion of the way things were.
But how can God lead me in His will, if I refuse to let go?
Yes, I am in the grip of His grace, and while I am there, I must let go and learn to embrace this new season. It has the potential to be a season filled with awe and wonder, filled with warmth and gratitude. It can also be a season where the gifts of God that have lay dormant in my life up to this point can rise to the surface.
I can’t have it both ways. I can’t hang on and let go. I will either hang on and refuse to move, or
[Tweet “I will let go, free falling into grace, knowing that He holds me.”]
So the question is, when change comes my way, will I turn and run, avoiding the unknown, or will I run into it, fully embracing that which I cannot see and do not fully understand?
Yes, Lord, I am thankful for this new season. I do not know yet how it will all unfold, but I am comforted by the fact that You know the end from the beginning, and that all my days have already been written. You will not lead me where you do not go. I am held in the grip of grace, free to let go and embrace the new.
