You usually have to give up one thing in order to embrace another. It’s true in your personal relationships, your career and even how you choose to spend your money. It’s also true in your relationship with God. So exactly what are you willing to give up in order to grow closer to God? Of course you already know the answer because it never changes. You’ve got to give up you. Or at the very least, you’ve got to be willing to give up your need to be in control of your life. Because that’s what it takes if you’re truly serious about experiencing God’s love that’s so awesome it can only be called amazing. Sure it can be hard. Not to speak of being scary. But when you take this one step of faith, you’ll be amazed just how much better God does your life than you ever could.
