Miracles Happen

What happens when I physically hold on to something? I turn my head away. I squeeze my eyes shut. My knuckles ache as my fists clench. Finger nails bite into the palms. I exhaust myself. I hurt !

On the other hand, when I trust God to give me what I need, I let go. I face forward. My hands are free for healthy, loving and enjoyable activities. I find unexpected reserves, many of which have been there all along.

Before I complain about the suffering, I might do well to examine myself. I may be surprised by the amount of pain I can release by simply letting go.

How much can God give me if I am not open to receive? When I hold onto a problem, a fear, or resentment, I shut myself off to help that is available to me. I will "Let Go, Let God".

All I had to do was become the least bit willing to open my clenched fist a tiny, grudging bit and miracles happened. Thats God as I understand Him to be.

While reading your bog, what’s between lines becomes mine too and that happens without any efforts. While reading your posts, my Lithuanian-English dictionary became the needless, because the sense of God’s presence among us made everything clear out of itself – we aren’t alone and need just gratitude for our dreams could flourish and enjoy the whole world.
Thank you for visiting my blog and your precious comments. Your words made my day.
Thank you, dear Terry Freeman.
