Letting Go: A Moment of Meditation
“You’ve brought me to the end of myself. This has been the longest road. And when my ‘Hallelujah’ was tired, you gave me a new song. Now I’m letting go.”
~Steffany Gretzinger, Letting Go
It was August 2, 2015, that I first heard this song and felt led to share it. And now, nearly four years later, the same prompting whispers to my heart to share this song with this community.
I feel like many of us are seeking a place of rest and abiding with the Lord, a place of peace and fruitfulness. Yet, there seems to be a struggle meeting us at the point of our best efforts.
The blessing is the battle is not ours but the Lord’s and all we, His children and sheep of His pasture, need to do is surrender our weakness to His strength.
Allowing our souls to be quiet in such a hectic world can prove a very difficult thing. But let us all take the time to press in order to enter His rest.
I feel like there is an urgency in the atmosphere for the Children of God to do that this season.
“If my flesh were to be cut open and my veins to flow freely until they ran dry, the words and supplication of this song would be heard, crying out from the very source of my life. I thank Yeshua Jesus that although it hurts, although it means a new direction, although it means taking time to learn the “me” I forgot and the “me” He is transforming out of what is left of me, I can let go…
“You remind me Of things forgotten. You unwind me Until I’m totally undone, And with Your arms around me Fear was no match for Your love. Now You’ve won me…” ~Letting Go, Bethel Music Worship
