Are you feeling untethered? Has the rope holding you secure to something or someone you loved, counted on, invested in, or believed frayed and split? Unraveled from that which you were once attached, do you feel flung, spun out, in limbo? Though you were not certain of the direction, you counted on it. Now swirling, bumping into life and pivoting from falls, you grab for another pole – something that won’t let you go.
“They are not of this world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. As You have sent Me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate Myself that they may also be sanctified in truth.” (John 17:16-19)
When we feel like are are falling, it is because long ago we were caught by Jesus, the Son of God. It is He who wrapped us securely to God’s Truth. This is the Anchor that will never come loose, the Vine that attaches eternally, and the Rock that is immovable.We must allow the splitting and slicing of securities that bind us to the world’s temporary pleasures. The tether of our days – homes, kids, spouses, friends, jobs, vacations, health, dreams, and memories, all fray.
One thing remains – God’s never-changing, never compromising, never ceasing Truth – His Word. All else lets go.
You are not untethered. You are entwined and attached to the One whose Life is in yours.
“I in them and You in Me, that they may become perfectly one so that the world maay know that You sent Me and loved them as You loved Me.” (:23)
Let go and hold on to the One who holds you.
