Let Loose

On one of my fave blog sites here there was a discussion about what word you would choose to meditate on for Christmas......after pondering this I chose the word(s) "let loose".

I was reading "The Message" translation of the story of the birth of Jesus and in describing the shepherds in Luke 2:20 it says,"The sheepherders returned and let loose, glorifying and praising God for everything they had heard and seen."

Those words "let loose" have been rolling around in my head ever since with thoughts such as:
  • God let loose his Son on earth
  • I should let loose of things that keep my focus off of Jesus
  • when was the last time I really let loose in praise and glorifying God
  • Jesus let loose of his life and died for me.....the list goes on

Of course - Christmas was a day that i never seemed to get around to meditating on those words. So, being that I am a blatant procrastinator I have decided to start the new year with the words - let loose - as a guide, at least to begin with. There is so much that I have to let loose of that would help me focus more on Jesus......not really a resolution but seems like the right place to start for me.....for now.....
