It is so easy to become attached: a job, a person, a philosophy or a hobby. They offer you a that comfortable sense of security that make you feel like you’re in control. It feels good, cozy and reassuring.
But most of the time – it’s all an illusion. The things that we cling to – hoping they would bring fulfilment – they disappoint us. People let us down, jobs come and go, teams lose… This exposes a deeper truth: we are building illusionary sandcastles. They never last. They never protect.
And when the raging waves take them away -we hit another low of disappointment… There is another way – one that leads to satisfaction: the way of surrender and dependency on God.
It’s a good time to unclench that grasp, before it’s snatched out of our hands by life’s knocks and learn to depend on a dependable, everlasting and ever-present God.
Psalm 46:1-3 NIV
 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,  though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
