Words to Live by 007


"If you dig in and fight the chnages, they will smash you to bits. They'll hold you under, drag you across the rough sand, scare and confuse you. But if you can find it within yourself, in the wildest moment, to trust in the goodness of God, who made it all and holds it all together, you'll find yourself drawn along to a whole new place. And there's truly nothing sweeter than to unclench your fists, unlock your knees, and also the door to your heart; to take a deep breath and begin to swim. Begin to let the waves do their work within you."  -Shauna Niequist  

These words of wisdom spoke so profoundly to me this week. Having the mind picture of clenched fists has opened my eyes to when I'm doing just that.
