Let go and Let God
Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Stop running from God. Indeed, the message today is to make things right with those we’ve hurt. “Then and only then will we find what we are looking for.” I heard this line in a movie I watched today, and I know this tidbit of wisdom to be the truth. A few years ago, my life was confused, messed up and headed in the wrong direction. I knew I was screwing up but I wasn’t able to face God. I was scared my mistakes were bigger than His wonderful love for me.But I was wrong. They weren’t!
The day I sat down and cried, letting Him know I was sorry and asking for forgiveness, was the day I finally felt free. I finally knew my life was heading back on track. That feeling was amazing. I stopped being scared. I let His love guide me. I let Him take away my hurts, my anger. In return, He gave me happiness, peace and unimaginable love.
I’m not always perfect, I make mistakes daily but that’s part of being human. I’ve let go of any negative feelings towards people who have hurt me. I’ve forgiven them. Really, if Jesus can die on a cross for me, then forgiveness should be easy.
That saying — “Let go and Let God” –.try it. Ask for forgiveness, open your Bible and let His love guide you. It sounds almost too good to be true, right?!?! Try it anyway. And you just might be surprised at the glory and peace that will indwell you. But don’t just dip your feet in, because Jesus wants all of you, starting with your heart and mind. How do I know this? Because Jesus loved us enough to die on a cross, and not just die…He was tortured for our sins, so that we could thrive in His goodness.
Yes, letting Jesus guide my heart isn’t always easy but I know without a shadow of a doubt that He has great things in store for me. And as such, I am willing to stake my life on His promises 🙂
