We tend to worry during hard times.Uncertainty makes us fearful. However, the Word tells us to put all of our trust in God. That means you have to let it go through prayer, and give it to God.

It is hard to think about — just how does one give it to God? How does one do that, knowing a job was just lost, someone’s husband cannot find a cure to an illness, one’s child isn’t saved yet, one’s home is in foreclosure — and all we’re supposed to do is just let it go and give it to God?  Yes.

As you pray, you begin to learn how to let it go and give it to God. The blessings bestowed upon you as a result sometimes seem to fall from the sky. At other times, the blessings manifest themselves as you cross paths with someone who suggests a remedy.  Sometimes even a phone call can provide the answer to your prayer. 

So, through trials and tribulations, which are vast — there are going to be many — you can do all things through Christ who will give you strength. It is a powerful phenomenon.  Then you turn around one day, look back on your life and remember how it used to be prior to letting God in, how you opening doors by giving Him your everything — just by letting it go.  

Now, I am not saying that it is easy, or that it happens instantaneously. There is a relationship that you will develop; there are vast possibilities in your prayers when He hears them. Your faith in letting it go allows you to see the other side of your circumstances.  

Stay strong as you await the answers that you are looking for. God works in His own time. By letting it go and giving it to Him, you just don’t know how different your life will become. Stay strong in your faith and start letting it go — one day at a time, one situation at a time. Before you know it, it is gone!  

Until next time….PEACE!
