"Whoever finds his [lower] life will lose it [the higher life],
and whoever loses his [lower] life on My account will find it [the higher life]."
-Matthew 10:39 (Amplified Version)

So many "Letting-go"s on this pilgrims' path...
Letting go of anything that diverts His flow through me
Letting go of, not just sin, but of the good that is not His best
Letting go of "the lower life" that I cling so tightly to at times
Letting go, Living in a state of surrender, Clinging only to Christ as the ever-changing world ebbs and flows around me. Loosening my grip on everything that would shake me from that still centered place.
I sometimes find myself resisting this release, prefering the synthesized sense of security that my pacifiers of choice afford me, but the letting go that God calls us to does not leave us empty handed, rather, it leaves us open handed to take hold of His "higher life", His many blessings, the very hand of God.
