I bet you have the Creed song "With Arms Wide Open" in your head now! :) It wasn't on purpose that I did that. (side note: A lot of phrases remind me of songs...it's weird but I can be in a serious conversation with you and something you say will remind of a song and I will probably start singing it in my head or worst case scenario out loud!) :)
I recently found this photo of me and it has become a great reminder of how I try to live my life daily. There are so many things I try to cling to and not let go of, and things I wish I could control but in order to live a life of freedom I must have my hands and my arms wide open. For me it's a sign of surrender. Everyday I have to remind myself that I can't control all that's going on in my world but I can keep my arms wide open and let God do the work! It seems to work out better for me in the end anyway! I have to daily release my family, friends and work to God.
What are some things you try to hold onto but the Lord is saying let go?
