I find myself not “Letting go and letting God.” Think about this for a minute. We get so caught up in our daily lives we forget to give our problems to God.
Every day we are getting more and more busy as our kids are getting older, getting more involved in summer and school activities, we are getting busier at work, our chores are backing up at home, we are struggling to stay afloat sometimes. Most importantly, I feel, we are not giving enough time to God. When we get so busy we forget to rely on him. We get so worked up and stressed we forget to “let go and let God.”
I challenge us all to sit back and ask ourselves “do we rely on God enough?” “Do we give him our problems?” “Do we ask him for help?” I bet most of our answers are “not as often as I should.”
Find time to talk to God each and every day. He is waiting patiently to help us. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
No matter what challenge or frustration you are faced with, God wants to help. Let him. I find my best prayers are in the car or shower when it’s just me. No distractions. Just me and my thoughts and my talks with God. God doesn’t care how or when you pray to him, just as long as you do.
Job 13″Yet if devote your heart to him and stretch out your hands to him, 16 You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. 17 Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning.” NIV
The most important thing we can do is to give it God! Every situation seek his advice, rely on him to guide you and direct your life. You won’t be sorry, I promise!
