Hang On or Turn Loose?
Oh, how those phrases are intermixed!
Depends on if we want to go up or down.
They can both be positive or negative statements.
We know to get a desired effect we have to do something!

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever. Psalms 30:12-11

So to get this desired effect we have to turn loose of anger, resentment, hurt, disappointment, and anything else that weighs us down.
Trade Mourning for Dancing
If we stay angry, the thing we are angry at has control over us.
So we have the hard job, turn loose so God can set out heart to dancing. Take off sackcloth put on Gladness
If we stay in the filth of our self righteousness,
We are the ones shutting out God's gladness
I Promise if I can you can!
