Let Go and Let God

The phrase to “Let Go and Let God” is often used to encourage letting go of excessive self-directed control in our own lives.  The phrase can apply just as well to our over involvement in the lives of our children or in friendships.  We can find ourselves trusting ourselves too much in these relationships and trusting others and their sense of sound judgment and inspiration too little.  By seeking too much control we can kill not only the self-initiative of others, but also more importantly curb the development of their exercise of faith.  It can be difficult, but sometimes the most important thing we can do is to be left out of the immediate equation.  The results often can surprise and delight us.  We can garner a greater respect for the life competencies of those we tended to underrate while simultaneously garnering a greater sense of aptitude in discerning our own personal limits.
