Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Holding On

Life requires countless "little deaths"- occasions when we are given the chance to say no to self and yes to God.
-Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity

Dear Lord,

I am holding on. What is inside my clenched fist I do not even know, but I need Your help to loose my fingers, to give into Your care that which really already belongs to You anyway. I do not want to let go. Lord, help my "want to" that it may become one with Yours.
