Thursday Trench Truth
What does that even mean, to let go and let God? I think it depends on what it is that needs to be let go of. For example, is it a worry that has you in a white-knuckle frame of mind? Is it a loss? A resentment? An addiction of any kind? Whatever it is that we need to let go of is something we weren’t meant to carry.
I watched a YouTube video the other day that helps explain it: If we thought of whatever we need to let go of as a piece of trash, we throw it away and we usually leave it there for the trash man to take away and take care of permanently.
Now I’m not saying God’s a trash man, by any means; He’s a trash taker and as He takes our worry, our loss, our resentment and/or addiction, He gives us something in exchange: forgiveness and a peace that transcends our own comprehension, becoming a fragrant aroma in life.
When we take back that which we’ve dropped at God’s feet for Him to put in its rightful place, we begin to smell of spoiled burden. To let go and let God is to exchange our trash for His fragrance, a fragrance so encapsulating and intoxicating it will take your breath away.
