What do you need to let go of? Do something about it. Act and create the New Year you very well deserve! - Daily Bible Reflections January 12,2015


STUCK!
 
Then they left their nets and followed him. – Mark 1:18
 
       I have heard that monkeys are caught through using coconut shells with holes as traps. The shells have holes big enough for food to be placed inside, but small enough for only the hand of the monkey to pass through. When a monkey puts its hand through the hole to get the food, it wouldn’t be able to pull out its hand unless it lets go of the food. The monkey is stuck and is eventually caught.
       Friends, regardless of our relation to monkeys, we do act similarly. There are things we desire and are not willing to let go of, even if holding on to them causes us difficulty, stagnation or outright harm. These desires could very well be harmful behaviors we habitually cling to. And because we seem unable to let go, we end up stuck!
       As Rush Limbaugh said, “Being stuck is a position few of us like. We want something new but cannot let go of the old — old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don’t. In both cases we have to do something.”
  Are you stuck? Let go... and let God. Jonathan Yogawin (jyogawin@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: What do you need to let go of? Do something about it. Act and create the New Year you very well deserve!
 
Lord, I surrender everything to You. Lead me.
 
St. Marguerite Bourgeoys, virgin, pray for us.
