Dash of Sass: Palms Up. Palms Open.
A reader reminded me of this quote from my book “I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has” over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you guys along with a revelation I received a couple of days ago. During my prayer time the other day, God reminded me that the posture for releasing something and the posture for receiving something else is identical: Palms up. Palms open. Not clenched tightly together from fear. Not clutching on to something that we are refusing to let go of. And not clasped behind our back in anger or bitterness. Palms up, palms open. Today I would encourage you to ask yourself if the things you are praying for and believing for might be delayed in arriving due to your refusal to SURRENDER other things. Things that might have once been good for you but long ago completed their purpose in your life. Things that you’re afraid to let go of for fear that you won’t get them back. Or even anger that you’re holding onto because you haven’t received the things you asked for in the time frame in which you think you should have. Here is what I know: 1) God will never deny you any GOOD thing and 2) You have to RELEASE in order to RECEIVE. How might simply changing your posture and your mindset today change your life? It’s a new week, almost a new season…heck, almost a whole new YEAR! Isn’t it time to peacefully release the past so you can prayerfully receive the future God has for you?
