These last few dandelion seeds appear to be holding on with all their might. Do you ever feel that you are barely holding on? Do you ever feel that you are clinging to the end of your rope with only your fingertips? It’s been a difficult winter and it seems as if spring is an impossible dream. In the chaotic whirlwind of our lives, when we feel we are losing our grip, Jesus says, “If you cling to your life, you will lose it, but if you give it up for me you will find it.” When we can’t hold on one more minute, when we can’t stand one more thing going wrong, Jesus calls us to surrender. Jesus calls us to let go, to let go of the worry, the stress, and the anxiety. Jesus calls us to take a leap of faith and grab onto God. Just like our tenacious dandelion seeds, it is only when we finally let go and let God that we will be able to dance with the wind and fly.
