Let go, Let God. Sounds easy doesn’t it. But it’s this simple plan that many of us struggle with the most. If we would stop trying to be God over our lives or the lives of others and let God take control, things would be much better. So why is it so hard? Why do we continue to try and self manage our lives? Why do we continue to make the same bad choices over and over? If we (I) would just completely surrender all of my stress and decisions over to God, and let him be the one in control I wouldn’t be in a lot of the situations that I have been in. I have been reading a book titled Lifes healing choices. This book and devotion series aims to teach you that you are not God and that we are unable to self manage our lives. We need to Let Go and Let God. As I have been faced with a lot of stress in the last few weeks, it seems apprroprate that I am in the middle of this series right now. I have to continualy remind myself that I need to just turns things over to God and let him lead me down the right path in my life. I have to make a constant effort to remember that I am not God and that I can’t self manage my life. I’m thankful to have a savior that lives and loves me unconditionally. And I know that he is always there, waiting for me to ask for help. I just have to give it up to him.
Lord, thank you for the blessings in my life. I know that you live and love me unconditionally. Help me to remember to turn things over to you and allow your will to be done. I can’t do this without you. I need you in my life. I give it all to you. Amen
