Letting Go

"There can be no revival if there is no sacrifice. If you want a revival, you must be willing to pay the price. You must be willing to lay down your WHOLE life, willing to let a lot of things go. You must be willing to sacrifice your time, efforts, and DESIRES. For without a sacrifice on the altar… there will be nothing for the FIRE OF GOD to consume…"

This is my season of letting go… my season of sacrifice. God has been showing to me these past days the things that my heart still clings to. Idols I have kept in my heart. Desires that still need to go through fire. Little things that have come between me and my God.

I am still under the process. And the process is painful. Yet there can never be a sacrifice without pain.

Yet even through all the pain, through all the hurting, I still hear the Father whispering to me, "Let go and hold on to ME." So here I am. Letting go of everything and holding on to the Father alone.

No Sacrifice (Jason Upton)

To you I give my life, not just the parts I want to
To you I sacrifice these dreams that I hold on to

Your thoughts are higher than mine
Your words are deeper than mine
Your love is stronger than mine
This is no sacrifice
Here’s my life

To you I give the gifts
Your love has given me
How can I hoard the treasures that you’ve designed for free?

Because
Your thoughts are higher than mine
Your words are deeper than mine
Your love is staronger than mine
This is no sacrifice
Here’s my life

To you I give my future
As long as it may last
To you I give my present
To you I give my past

Because
Your thoughts are higher than mine
Your words are deeper than mine
Your love is staronger than mine
This is no sacrifice
Here’s my life

Here’s my life, Jesus…

One thought on “Letting Go

  1. I can relate… surely all HIS children too. =) Hey, HE has given HIS all for us… how can we withhold anything from Him? And the great thing is that we can be assured that HE is far more wonderful than anyone or anything we choose to sacrifice/surrender… yeah even our very lives. HE IS WORTH IT ALL!

Don't forget to show some love! ^_^
