I am sure many of you have heard the phrase “Let Go and Let God”. This morning God laid it on my heart to go and read through one of my journals. I do this from time to time because it allows me to see God’s handy work in my life. Within these journals are quotes, poems, and inspiring exhorations from men and women of God. On August 25, 2004, this poem spoke to me.
Let Go and Let God
As children bring their broke toys with tears for us to mend. I brought my broken dreams to God because he is 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 could I do?” you never did let go.
Life is fluid. What I mean by that is that it is subject to change. Change can be expected or unexpected. Often, it is unexpected change that brings the most challenges. For me, it is during those times that I focus on God’s promises and his faithfulness. As I flip through my journal, I can see he has never failed me. And I know he will never fail you.
