When I read the word this is the image that popped in my mind.
Grasping takes real effort, concentration, focus. It's human nature to hold on.
Life is filled with grasping. Holding on.
Scripture talks about holding on, too, just not to any of those things. Instead it reminds us to grasp tightly to the One who holds all things in His much more capable hands.
Today, Father, help me grasp tightly only to You.
