Letting Go and Letting God – October 29 Devotions
Yes, this was one of those days where I had to prioritize and complete another segment of a project for a client. I had to let go and let God manage me and my time today, instead of trying to do more things than I really had time to do.
So onto this day’s devotional thought…
“Lord, thank You that I can let go
of the whole burden of my life and service…
of my marriage, my children,
and all my relationships (past, present, and future),
of my inadequacies and my self-dependence,
and rest on Your presence working in me
through the Holy Spirit.
How good it is to transfer these burdens
from my shoulders to Yours,
and to rest on You to work in me
and for me and through me!
Thank You that I can give myself up
to be led by You.
I can go forth praising and at rest,
letting You manage me and my day.
Thank You that I can throw the whole weight
of my anxieties on You,
for I am Your personal concern.”
–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise”
This is one of my favorite devotionals that I read every month from Ruth Myers’ book. It’s such a good reminder to “let go and let God” be in control.
So what are YOUR thoughts?
What do you think about the idea of “letting go and letting God” (or whatever higher power you might believe in) be in control of your life? It doesn’t mean you have no responsibilities, it just means you choose to cooperate with God in becoming all He intends you to be, to fulfill your destiny.
