let go

let go


When we begin to question the love of God,
we need to remember who we are.  
We have absolutely no claim on His love.
We don’t deserve one bit of God’s goodness to us. 
I once heard a speaker say, “Anything this side of hell is pure grace.”    
~ Jerry Bridges, Trusting God

let go of “i deserve this
let go of “i don’t deserve that

you deserve hell
you receive heaven

claiming rights tears down
astonishment at grace builds up

you have no right to demand reward
only through His Spirit you breathe life

let go of you
take hold of Him

So true -- if we got what we truly deserved and what we truly have rights to -- well, I'm just so glad grace goes beyond what we deserve.

More of him - less of me. We gain by losing, we live by dying, we grab hold - by letting go.

You say in 100 words what Isay in 10,000 - I covet your gift :)

God Bless and Keep you Lisa
