Trust in the Lord: Let Go and Let God!


God knows the way out of your predicaments; just let go and let God. He can and will straighten things out.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6, ESV)

I watched as my little black terrier, Mona pulled harder and harder on her leash. With each tug, the collar choked her causing her to gasp for breath. Standing in the protection of the doorway, I was desperately trying to untangle the long cord from around the patio chair so that she could get out of the rain but in her haste and stubbornness she would not allow any slack; pulling, she kept the line taunt, without any give.

Finally braving the cold and rain, I ventured out. Lifting her up, I took a few steps towards the culprit chair, freeing her. The damage was done, however and she continued to hack and clear her throat for a few minutes as she settled herself in front of the fireplace, content and at rest.

It occurred to me that I can be just as stubborn and stupid. So often I get myself tied up in knots and rather than relaxing, I run. I keep struggling to get or keep control over my situation instead of stopping, dropping to my knees and allowing the Lord to lift me up. He knows the way out of my predicaments; I just need to let go and let God. He can and will straighten things out.
