Let go

Some things we have to hear again and again. 

We know the truth, we believe it, we promise ourselves to let it sink deep into our heart and to live according to that truth.
But time passes.
Problems arise.
We forget.
We don't see anymore.
We still know.
But it's not knowledge that changes live.
It's faith and trust.
And we need to hear it again.

Sometimes the truth hits our heart, when we don't expect it. 
Sometimes it comes along while reading a novel.

This wonderful book touched my heart with God's love in a way not many books do.

We must let go.
We must let go of our fears, our anxiety, our grievance, our sorrows. (Matthew 6:25-34)
We must let our hearts fill with His love to find His Kingdom within us. (Luke 17:20-21)
Our heart will know again that it's true: 

"You will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I am in you." (John 14:20)

Ted Dekker has been given a talent and he didn't bury it but made the best of it. 
He didn't put his lamp under a bowl and with his books he is the light of the world. 

Of course this abredged version has been published with a reason: to coax readers to buy and read A.D. 33 - and yes. This plan works out: I've just pre-ordered to receive it on October 6.
