I saw a small rowboat tied to some rocks with a hand holding a large pair of scissors—as if waiting for permission to cut the rope. Beyond the shore was an ocean liner put well out to sea. The suggestion….Once the rope was cut, the boat would be free to launch out the water’s depth.
I’ve never been one to jump too quickly into unchartered waters, unless I receive a personal invitation from God. So when the call came for me to accompany my husband overseas for an extended period of time—I hesitated. I wrestled. I worried.
The truth is, like the boat tied to the dock, I needed someone to cut the rope so that I would be set free to let go of the familiar… and trust God for the unknown.
God knew about my struggle and spoke to me through this poem. The words flowed onto paper and took root within my heart, and I was released by the truth of these words.
Come away with Me, Beloved.
Break away from
thoughts and cares
that bind you.
Release your grip,
Let go and
give it all to Me.
Leave the shores
Put well out to sea…
with soul anchored and
trusting in Me.
Push away from
Your heart will be set free
to please only Me…
when you launch out
in the depths of My love.
Do you struggle to let go and trust God in certain areas of your life?
If so, I invite you to join me—let’s give our fears to Jesus and launch out into the depths of His love.
Jesus spoke “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!” (Matthew 14:27: NLT)
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
(Isaiah 41:10 NLT)
