“LET GO!!!!!” When I was younger, I went paragliding in China & had virtually no instruction for the paragliding adventure. Whatever training the paragliding “company” did was in Mandarin & my Mandarin skills don’t have any paragliding vocabulary. Needless to say, I wasn’t prepared for this undertaking, which of course didn’t stop me – smile. I strapped into the harness thing, proceeded to jump off the mountain and I had this TOTALLY SHOCKING experience, which I later learned was a thermal. I caught a wind gust that was like rocket thrusting me straight up! My mind said, “LET GO!!” and then I thought about my options: let go & fall or hold on & keep going up. I decided that I preferred the lifting experience over the falling experience, so I held on. Let’s make the same kind of decision about Jesus when we get in a crisis. Hold on to Jesus & He will lift us up!
ps – I had an amazing ride with my paragliding experience 🙂
