As humans, we get anxious when things don't go as
planned, and our natural tendency is to control every
circumstance in our lives, rather than giving control
over to God.
No matter what, God is always in control. We cannot,
simultaneously, have our hands on the wheel while
giving God control. God is perfectly capable of leading
us exactly where we are supposed to go.
Life will sometimes force us to come to the
realization of our powerlessness to save ourselves.
God already knows what we desire, God knows
what's best for us, and God knows what is most
appropriate for our souls.
When we ignore God’s Way, Will, and Timing
so that we can pursue our own way, will, and timing…
the consequences can be unpleasant and sometimes
We not only have an obligation to God, but
also to ourselves to discern and fulfill
God's Way, Will, and Timing
for our lives. It is only by making this a top
priority that we will find true joy, the growth
we truly desire, and the satisfaction of an
ultimately worthwhile existence on this earth.
God will by-far surpass our fondest dreams.
Our part is to surrender the self-will, way, timing,
and the outcome we desire, and allow God's Will,
God's Divine process to unfold.
No matter how much we try to control our lives,
God’s Will is what we should strive for.
May we let go of our self-forcing way, will, and
timing, and allow God to manifest His Divine Way,
Will, and Timing in our lives.
Letting go means... letting go of the ego with its
self-will, its limited understanding, its preconceived
ideas, illusions, and mindsets.
We all have been in situations where we really felt
weak, loaded down, and burdened... unable to do
anything to change our circumstances.
“Give all your worries and cares
to God, for God cares about you.”
God is able to produce immeasurably more
than we could ask or imagine.
God's Way, Will, and Timing far surpasses
anything that we could ever ask or imagine.
One of the most important
realities of life is knowing
to Whom we belong.
The truth is, we have little control
over our own lives.
Control is an illusion.
We never had it and we never will.
We have to understand that the things we are to do,
we do by the power of God
and not on our own puny abilities and achievements.
In other words... it is a major tragedy
when our pursuit for power and wisdom
stops short of God.
Think about it...
God is a treasure of power
and a treasure of wisdom
than any of the things
that stir and excite us in this world!
Contentment in today will prevent our eyes from
wandering back to our past or off to tomorrow.
As we ask God for help, let us be willing to let go,
follow God’s counsel... harkening our inner ear,
seeing with our inner eye, feeling with our
innermost being, and letting the unbelieving
God desires for us to engage and go and do.
But we must be humble and conscious
of our dependency... always on God.
There is no promise too hard
for God to keep.
In order to live purposeful, passion-filled lives, we
must surrender all control to God. God has the perfect
plan laid out for our lives.
