Losing is Finding

by joanabagano


It’s still the first day of the year, but I have already been told that 2015 will be a year of letting go. 2014 brought in so many new things, probably so many for my own good, that I would have to sift through all of it and ask God about the ones worth keeping. He promised me that if I do find the gems, they will be mine for life. It’s not going to be easy, He told me, because a lot of attachments have stuck like glue. There will be parts of me that will be painfully peeled off so that new skin may grow. I need to be careful about living in the past and picking at the scab. Unless I let it be, I will keep wounding myself and avoiding the freshness about to come.

“For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” Matthew 16:25
