The Gaither Vocal Band sings a song called “Give it away” and I love that song! It says: “If you want more happy than your heart can hold, if you want to stand taller if the truth were told take whatever you have and give it away. If you want less lonely and a lot ore fun and deep satisfaction when the day is done then take whatever you have and give it away.” There is such a truth to this premise. Holding tightly onto things only make the loss more bitter.
Corrie Ten Boom wisely said “I’ve held many things in my hands and I’ve lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands,that, I still possess.” In this lies the truth of our life. Never hold something so tight that God must break you to remove it. He will give you a choice and you, in your wanton desires, may choose to keep dear that which will kill you. A hand that is left open before God may have things taken but it will also receive such blessings and joy!
John 16:23-24 “And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
