Let Go and Let God

As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God, because He was my friend,
But then, instead of leaving Him in peace, to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own
At last, I snatched them back and cried.
"How can You be so slow?"
"My child," He said
"What would I do? You never did let go."

We have heard a lot of times the advice "let go and let God". It is honestly easy to say this but I know that it is hard for most of us to do it.

Letting go and letting God doesn't only requires us to have faith but also to trust God. Faith talks about believing His existence and believing that He can do things for us. While trust speaks about us knowing and believing that He will do things for us, relying our worries to God.

Most of the time, especially when we encounter difficulties such as sickness, financial problems, failures or whatever it is that we had asked God to help us, we try to resolve it with our own. We worry so much and even afraid that we could not receive the result that we want. Rememeber Proverbs 3:5, Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; and also Psalm 56:3, When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.

Have faith and trust God. If you are afraid and worried, pray and just believe that He will fix things for you.

Amen, and Amen! Love the dialog in the beginning... but aren't we just like that? "Let go and let God" sounds nice, but definitely easier said than done. Yes it's difficult, but not impossible. That's where faith and trust come in.

Good post. Small, but packed with truth! Love ya!

Hi Penlighted, GOD is simply amazing. His blessing is flowing thru blog we have. Lori, this is the way how GOD using you so that we can share GOD's blessing.

Penlighted, I'd posted the same title in my blog but GOD give us the different perspective.. God simply wants us to give our all so that we can walk in His plan.
If you're struggling with giving GOD your all today, ask HIM to help you. GOD BLESS DEAR FRIEND.

"Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him." (Psalm 2:11-12) :-)

Wonderful post, and so true! This little Christian saying, "Let go and let God" has become so trite because it is one of the most difficult things to do! What is true, for me at least, is that I had to come to realize that I had far less control over the situation anyway (in my case, breast cancer), and realizing that made trusting God so much easier. He truly is in control, and He has only my best interests at heart.

Again, loved this post!
