"If I just let go....." These 5 words have been uttered in one arrangement or another for decades. Men and women living life in the shadow of regret; hoping for an opportunity to unburden and gather their wits. What stops mankind from experiencing a stress free life? Sin.
Mankind is mortal and will always be. When Adam and Eve chose to eat of the fruit of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they forever cast themselves and their children into a world of fear and unknown. From there we started the secret keeping. Cain killed Abel, Moses was raised as an Egyptian, David slept with Bathsheba, Jonah tried to escape going to Ninevah, and so on. Fast forward to the age we live in and we can see the destruction that sin wrecks on our world.................
"If I just let go...oh but then i'll be exposed." The truth that silently keeps us bound. Our silence, though innocent at times, threatens to destroy us internally. We live in a world that loves to judge and claim justice "in the name of........." I'll be the first to admit it. I am all about exposing corruption and seeing what i believe is just, served as a sentence. I want an apology, an acknowledgment of wrongdoing and an agreement that prevents repeat offenses. But no one likes to have their cards up on the table. The raw magnitude of a revelation is scary to most.
"If I just let go.....oh but then i'll be exposed. So I just hold tight to my pride so caught up in who i am not."
And so we sit...silent.....letting the world continue on....backgrounds on a stage.....but yet the pressure still rises to break free.
But hope comes in the Scripture, in the person of Christ Jesus.
Matthew 11:28 " Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."
Psalm 130:6 "I wait for the Lord more than the watchmen wait for the morning..."
Love is Patient. Love is Kind.
