Let go and Let God!
Lately, I have felt impressed by God to share some love from the book Forgotten God, by Francis Chan. I am reading chapter five today. It is about a real relationship with God. The chapter opens with a quote by Karl Barth, "When we are at our wits' end for an answer, then the Holy Spirit can give us an answer. But how can He give us an answer when we are still well supplied with all sorts of answers of our own?" Yes, Yes and Yes!!! This is oh so very true in my life. I can come up with all kinds of "answers" I think suitable or best for my life. It is so hard to "let go and let God," as my former pastor used to say. I like to be in control. Too much! But oh the freedom and peace that fills my soul when I do step out of the way and let the Holy Spirit have His Way in my life!
