Grace & Truth to Let God be God

January 10, 2020 |
Grace and Truth

Good Morning! This is God!
I will be handling all your problems today. I will not need your help — so have a good day!

I love you!

What do my favorite coffee mug and today’s feature post have in common? 

They both remind us to get out of the way and let God do His thing.

Release The Burden of New Year’s Resolutions

One of my problems last week was dealing with the pressure of making a New Year’s resolution. So much of me to fix, so little time! 

New Year’s resolutions are a jinx for me. Not only do my plans fail, but I always weigh even more each December than I did in January!

If planning your New Year’s resolution is a burden, then you’ll love today’s Grace & Truth featured post by Karen ‘Girl’ Friday. 

Clear your mind for a moment, exhale, and ponder with Karen as she asks: 

What will the new year hold if I simply let God do His job as God? And what if I let the Almighty reign over my decisions, circumstances, dreams, and life?

We don’t know what is to come in the next 12 months. But we know that we will grow in grace and truth if we trust in the One who made our future. 

Karen reminds us let Him take care of our plans and she offers three practical ways to let God do His job in her post What If I Let God Be God This Year?

What if we let God be God...?

    Valerie and Heather, thanks so much for highlighting my post this week. I’m praying to really let God be God. After all, He’s the only One who can fulfill the role perfectly. If He controls the universe, He is certainly able to control my life. God bless! Thank you to all the Grace & Truth hosts for this space to connect and link up!
