I give up!

Our Sunday morning routine involves waking up at 5:45, Lyn or I get up to make a make a cup of tea and back in bed by 6:00 to listen to Rev Shona on  Hot 91.9 FM (highly recommended!). Part of her message this past Sunday  that I would like to share with you was about giving up the old to become a new creation in God. She spoke about Psalm 46 v 10:  "Be still and know that I am God".  The original Hebrew route (which I have not been able to confirm) means let go.  The revised version would then read; let go and know that I am God which is very similar to the old adage of "let go and let God".

What can you and I let go of?

With God’s help we can let go of trying to control people in our life, we can let go of worry and unforgiveness, we can let go of the past. The past has often been an anchor in my life but with God’s help we can turn it into a rudder for the future. Let’s let go of what we cannot control. This is basically all summed up in the serenity prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let’s pray: Please God let today be the day of letting go. Help us to forgive and to live. Help us to become the new creation that You desire us to be as we let go of the old and put on the new and rest in the assurance and knowledge that You are in control and we can trust You God with all our heart mind and soul…….In Jesus name we pray. Amen

God Bless ~ Colin & Lyn
