Letting Go Of The Death Grip


 Went parasailing with my husband and our two girls today. It was AMAZINGLY PEACEFULWow… at how clear things appear from so high up in the sky. I love to look at the sky and I absolutely love taking pictures of the sky, and to be able to fly through the air was amazing.

   I thought I might be scared or get butterflies in my stomach..but I didn’t. It was simply..pure peace.

   The divers looked so tiny in the water below. The people on the beach looked like ants. The water was so clear and we even saw some sea turtles! It was an experience that I will never forget.

   Here’s the thing, I trusted the equipment. I trusted the captain. I trusted that they knew what they were doing. I just let them hook me up and go. Really without asking any questions.

   We do things like this daily. Trusting people. Trusting rides at the theme park. Trusting equipment. Trusting without even questioning.

   So….why do we question God so much?  So..why do we question God and His plan for our life? Why don’t we fully surrender and trust? You may have…you might be there. Not everybody is there. I am closer to that point than I have ever been. It is only because I seek Him minute by minute now.

   God sees the big picture. Everything is clear to Him. He knows and wants what is best for us. The little things that seem so big to us now… We can trust God with EVERYTHING.

   Before we went up in the air, the captain told us to not hold on with a death grip up there. See…if you are holding on with a death grip, you can’t relax and enjoy the ride. He was right too…I let go and enjoyed the time up in the sky.

   It’s the same with trusting God and letting go and surrendering. If we hold on with a death grip to those things that we need to let go of, we won’t enjoy the ride. God’s got it..we have to let go of our death grip.

   God sees the big picture..it is up to us to trust Him.

   Psalm 32:10 (NIV) ~ Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.

   Life is so much more beautiful when you trust Him.
