Crossing a bridge for change

Let go and Let God !

EASY WORDS TO SAY..sometimes hard to do.


Hard tasks and hard changes require FAITH and HOPE.  God wants to hear from us in all matters, big or small. We should be Praying constantly, listening for His voice. 


 When I say praying constantly, I'm not talking about being on our knees for hours. Words of prayer can fill our minds and mouths and can spill out during all activities. We can have a sense of God with us always..simple uttering of "God help me". "Thank you Jesus", "I give it to you Lord" as we make our way through the many situations we encounter every day.

As an example...Have you ever prayed for a good parking spot, and then gave a sigh of 'thank you Lord' when you get it?  I have many times.  He is with us in all things !!


You may have heard about the man that climbed on the roof of his house during a flood and prayed for God's help,  A boat came by and he refused help saying God will help me, then a helicopter came overhead, and still, he refused help saying God will help me. 

Well,  he drowned and when he was face to face with the Lord, he asked why he didn't help him..The answer was ...I sent a boat and a helicopter and you refused my help !!


Be open and listen for His voice..His help comes in many forms..


Difficult decisions can be made with the peace of knowing you saught and listened for His voice, His answers.  We may get answers we are not always happy or comfortable with.



How sad to hear someone say "I prayed and asked God for help, and he didn't answer me".  But if you're praying about a situation and your not sure you heard God's answer. His silence to you may be the answer. 


Are we seeking HIS answer or our wants?  Are we resisting the changes that may come with HIS answer?  Letting go and letting God is not a simple thing to is the best and right thing to do.   Peace and comfort will be ours when we do let go!


He gave us this prayer..pray it often


"Our Father which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name,

Thy Kingdom come, THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for 





" This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"  Psalm 118:24
