Living a life of faith is a life dependent on God. Trusting God to guide you from moment to moment. We get ourselves into trouble when we stop relying on God. When we try to take matters into our own hands. When we allow negative emotions like fear, greed, and anger to control us.
When we let go and trust God to guide us, we make better decisions. We have better relationships. We attain wisdom — we see more deeply. And we find peace and love. The most important things we’re all searching for. We lose sight of them when we allow negative emotions to take over.
We must always let go and trust God to show us the way. Part of that means being patient, waiting for things to run their course, being more of a listener, and being focused on the task at hand.
