My sisters and I write songs and one of them wrote this song called "Letting Go". It's a song about letting go of everything to walk with Jesus. The question I have been faced with is:
Are you willing to do whatever it takes?
I know that sometimes I'm not. Jesus is not always my everything. Sometimes he just a thing in my life. I want him to be the One thing in my life that permeates the rest of my life. I'm so in love with God, and so insanely taken by him, but even with that, I still have a lot of days where God isn't the only thing. Sometimes, God, school, fear, pain, family, friends, etc... get bits and pieces of my attention, and God is just another thing on that list.
I want to let go of fear, of worries, of stress, of selfish desires and I want to cling onto Jesus. I need to let go and hold onto Jesus. He is life, and he is my life. He's the reason I am who I am. He's the reason I am becoming who He created me to be. I'm tired of doing everything on my own. I want to know the heart of God. I want Him to be the only thing I seek and find. He's the reason we were created, and we are the reason he gave up everything to save the world.
What about you? Will you let go of all your fears, all your worries, all your plans and dreams, and all your doubts to follow God? I know my answer is "Yes, Jesus, whatever it takes I choose you."
