Dear Elisabeth

“If we hold tightly to anything given to us unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used we stunt the growth of the soul. What God gives us is not necessarily "ours" but only ours to offer back to him, ours to relinquish, ours to lose, ours to let go of, if we want to be our true selves. Many deaths must go into reaching our maturity in Christ, many letting goes.”
We are having this kind of morning.

She put it so perfectly. God has been enlightening me to this lately. I wish it wasn't so difficult as humans to trust His sovereignty with grace & peace. Thanks for posting this reminder.

Yes. How very very true. The only thing we can cling to is Jesus.
