It is a sorry state when I cling to what I have.  Do I own my property or does it possess me?  Why can’t I cling to Jesus?  God is patient. Every new invitation is genuine, and as if it’s His first.  O Lord, open my mind and heart to your call.  May I not be distracted by what separates me from you.  Help me make the leap from clinging to all else to grasping into You.
