Let go and grow!
I have found in life the things I try and hold most tightly too often end up being the things that leave my life with the most difficultly, and at times animosity. Yet when we become the kind of leader, friend, parent, follower that commits to being open handed, we allow opportunities and possibilities to keep opening to us. God wants to use our hands as an extension of His. When our hands are open we stop being controlling and we see the beauty and power in releasing. When we open our hands we become a conduit of resources instead of their controller. We prevent our relationships from being manipulative or possessive and instead become empowering and equipping. Today look at your spiritual posture. Is it one of closed or open hands. Are your fists clenched in fear of loosing people or possessions or palms open in trust and prayer. Open your hands to let those around grow, open your hands to release instead of restrict, to sow instead of stifle. It was Christ’s open hands on the cross that made a way for you to put your life in the fathers hands. Don’t let your life be limited because your hands are restricted. Today embrace new possibilities by adjusting your posture. Open your hand to your future #letgoandgrow
