You might be young or maybe not. You might be rich or not so much. You might have a strong faith or not so strong. The question that the young man who wants to follow Jesus leaves with us all is: What are you holding onto that holds you back from following the Lord more closely? Deep within your heart when you are honest with yourself, you know whatever that is. So, if you want to be happy, let-go. Otherwise, you too will sadly go away; go-on with your life feeling like something is missing. The Lord wants you to be happy. Yes, it is a challenge. The challenge is to trust in his love. Let-go and let God!
