You are probably singing the Disney version, but I want to talk about the God version.
Let it go….give God control of the out-of-control situations in your life.
In my own life things got out of control and instead of trusting God to take care of ‘it’, I took control. Whoa, talk about things getting out of control! Things went from bad to worse and I was blaming God for it. But, He was doing just exactly what I gave him the ability to do…waiting in the wings and watching me try to handle it on my own.
He’s not a forceful god, but a loving Father who wants us to realize that He has the best intentions for us. He loves us enough to take care of all the ‘stuff’ that comes our way. All He asks is that we love and trust him. Allow Him to be ‘control central’ in our lives.
Our power comes when we wave the little white flag and say ‘God, I surrender all to you’. Surrendering to God isn’t a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. Strength to say, I can’t do this, but You can.
Surrendering (letting it go) means I am saying “God, here I am use me”. Make me the person you designed me to be, let my life bring you glory.
It’s like the Potter and the clay from Jeremiah, He wants to mold us into the fine piece of pottery he planned for us, but we have to stay on the potter’s wheel for that to happen. We have to always be allowing him to mold us and form us. When we stop letting that happen then the wheel stops and we are no longer being formed and the clay gets hard. Keep the wheel spinning and allow God to mold us into who He destined us to be by staying surrendered to Him.
Surrendering to God means I am cooperating with Him. I am sitting on the Potter’s wheel and He is molding me everyday, through each and every situation that comes my way.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
All to Jesus I surrender; all to him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust him, in his presence daily live.
