Time to abandon ship

He taught me how to sing the latest God-song, a praise-song to our God. More and more people are seeing this: they enter the mystery, abandoning themselves to God.
- Psalm 40 v 3

Define abandon:
give up with the intent of never claiming again

God never seems to use woolly language when describing our relationship with Him.

Dead to self, alive to Him seems pretty definitive.
Selling everything we have to purchase it is radical.
Chucking everything you have out in the street to find it.

But it really is the only thing that makes sense when we understand what we find.

Throwing ourselves off the deck of a sinking and doomed ship of our lives that may look as though it gives us at least some chance of survival into a stormy ocean my seem like madness. With no way back many would think us crazy. But in our leap into the unknown we are found by God and a way back becomes irrelevant.
