I don’t know why I get surprised by the goodness of God.
God does amazing things for us. When I let go of my worries and give them to God, amazing things happen.
I worry. I get stressed out. I try and control the situation, which just gets worse. Then, finally, I truly let go and give my worries to God.
God comes all the way through. God handles it in his way. I can pray for certain outcomes, but I have to trust that God has the best outcome.
It is hard to let go. I have to say and truly believe, “God, I am putting this in your hands”. I have to accept the outcome, no matter what it is, even if I do not understand it. I may find out later, or I may never find out.
God has so many amazing things to give us. God wants to heal our relationships. God wants us to get along and not fight. God want us to be at peace with one another.
Be at peace among yourselves.
–1 Thessalonians 5:13 (NKJV)
God wants us to act with love, not hate. The Lord will direct our hearts to find God’s love. God can give us the patience of Christ.
Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
–2 Thessalonians 3:5 (NKJV)
God wants to give us so much. We try on our own, having no idea, how great our lives would be, if we handed God control. God’s ways are not our own. God has great outcomes, that we could never have imagined.
