Letting Go

Tynea Lewis

I hold a treasure in my heart.
It has given me joy right from the start.
But then I hear a voice that’s calling,
“Let it go.” But I keep stalling.
I’m afraid to place it in God’s hand.
Will it disappear? Will I be able to stand?
God reminds me that this is for the best,
that I need to lean on God for the rest.
I didn’t realize that letting go
would give me more joy than I could know.
