Let Go
=======

.

One day while climbing towards a high cliff a man slipped and
fell over the edge.

.

Frantic - he grabbed at a branch jutting out from a tree and
yelled out,

.

“Oh, God, help me.”

.
He looked down while holding on tight and saw only jagged rocks.

.
Clutching even tighter to the branch he cried out again,

.
“God…Please help me.”

.
Suddenly he felt God’s presence and heard God ask,

.
“My son, what can I do for you?’

.

The man, somewhat relieved, answered,

.
“Please God, help me. Save me.”

.

God said quietly,

.

“Do you love me?

.

Do you trust me?

.
Do you believe in me?”

.

“Yes, yes, I love you. I trust you and I believe in you,”
the man shouted.

.
“Well, if indeed you love me, trust me, and believe in me,

.

LET GO.”

.

With some hesitation and another look below at the jagged rocks,
the man asked,

.

“Is there anybody else up there I can talk to?”

.

We often seek other answers when our real answer can only come
when we “Let Go” of some things.

.

Though the above is an often-told joke, it is a true parable.
So often in counseling, I tell people the same thing.

.
“You have got to let go. That situation is killing you.
It is killing your peace, your finances, and your future.

.

You must let go!”

.

Often they will inwardly feel just as the hanging man asked,

.
“Is there anybody else that I can talk to, because I am afraid
to let go? I know the situation is killing me, that’s why I’m
here. I know that what I am holding on to is destined to die.
I know I cannot fully live while I remain embraced with it.

.

But I am soooo… afraid.

.
Afraid that I might fall if I let go.”

.
Like a person on drugs, you often must “come down” before you

“Thanks for inviting me to go to church with you next Saturday, Uncle Al.” Tim and his uncle were on their way to Bonny Lake. They had heard the fishing there was great. “I . . . I don’t want to hurt your feelings,” continued Tim, “but . . . well . . . I’m not sure I want to get into this religious stuff. Besides, Mom and Dad don’t think it’s a good idea.”

.. 

“Oh?” asked Uncle Al in surprise. “I thought you said that your parents wouldn’t mind if you went with me. You sounded quite interested last week. You even said the Gospel was beginning to make sense to you.”

..

“Yeah, but since then I’ve done a lot of thinking,” Tim said slowly. “I don’t think I feel like getting ‘saved’ right now. The crowd I hang around with at school wouldn’t understand, and I like being with them. Someday I’ll start going to church, but I think I’ll just go on the way I am for a while. I know I’m not perfect, but I’m not so bad, either.”

..

Tim’s uncle drove on silently for a few minutes. “Oh, no!” he exclaimed as they passed a road sign. “I was so intent on our conversation that I missed the turnoff! We should have gotten off this road five miles back!”

..

“Guess we’ll have to turn around and go back now, huh?” asked Tim.

..

But Uncle Al shook his head. “I don’t feel like turning around right now,” he said. “I guess we’ll just keep going
