Are You Clenching?
What are you holding onto? Wanta quit?
There are many things that we people hold onto. Some of them are
more important than others.
What we believe is extremely important. It affects our entire
lives. It can start with kids. When kids get insulted awhile
they tend to believe what they've been told more and more. Their
actions follow that belief.
They do and say things that back that belief. If they think they
are stupid they don't try anything that only "smart people" do.
If they think that they are ugly then they try to hide
themselves so people don't see them.
Based on years of experience, adults tend to be more watchful of
what they're going to believe.
That sounds great but we do need to double-check and make sure
that our thinking is actually backing the truth.
God is the truth.
He loves you and would love to help you become better and do
better than you already are.
He wants you to give Him all our cares because He cares for you
Give Him Your Cares Mentally giving it to Him is very
important. If you're someone that would like a physical move to
show yourself that you gave it away, do this:
1. Look at your clenched hand (make sure that your thumb's down
around your fingers like a fist).
2. Put the top part (the hole) over your mouth. Breath into the
3. With your mind's eye realize that you just released something
from your body into your hand.
4. Take your hand away from your mouth. Twist your wrist so that
you open your hand palm-up.
Letting Go It has risen. God has taken it. He will take
care of it because He cares for you!
Don't take it back! It's too bad but sometimes we people
don't let go easily. If there was something worrying you then
chances are you wouldn't beg to get it again and again!
God said that He would provide all our needs in (Philippians
4:19). God said that if we ask anything according to His will He
hears us, and if we know that He hears us then we will get what
we asked Him for (1John 5:14,15).
Just let go of it! Quit clenching it and staying in bondage
because of it! He's already said that He's taken care of you!
Don't wait! Read God's Word (the Bible) to find out more!
