Letting God…Be God.

An exciting possibility recently surfaced in my life, quite unexpectedly. Immediately I began to play out what might occur, when, and how all the other aspects of my life would be affected by this possibility. In my mind, I began to manipulate everything to work out nicely. Essentially, I began to try to take the reins and to plan out each detail.

Especially for those of us with leadership abilities and tendencies, it can be difficult to give over control of our lives. In fact, it can be difficult even to see when we are seeking control, since it is part of the very fabric of our nature. However, all this planning is in vain. You see, GOD is ultimately in control. Though it’s important to have a direction…It is all “God willing.No amount of planning or manipulation on our part can accomplish what God has for us.

The good news is, I don’t need to plot out every aspect of my life! I can let go of stress and anxiety as I learn to simply trust. My Creator knew my path and all the beautiful twists and turns it would take before I was even in my mother’s womb! I could never have imagined the beautiful experiences I would have in my life, the connections I would meet that would shape my life, and how so many details would seamlessly meld together at a perfect time. As I look in awe over the numerous miracles in my life, I look forward to seeing how He will do it again!

Isn’t it amazing the miracles that happen….When we let God, be God!

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”~Ephesians 3:20-21

“Do You Wanna Be Happy?”

To some extent, we all try to place our happiness in other people. But another person can never make us whole. Then we try to control our lives, thinking that a Sovereign God doesn’t know or care enough to know what is best for us. Yet we end up broken each time. This song tells the story.

Let Jesus take the wheel! Give it all to Him. Only in Him is there is true happiness and joy.
