Let Go and Let God
This has to be one of my Mom's favorite lines. I have heard it my entire life. When someone says it enough it begins to creep into your every day life. Literally throw up your hands when you are frustrated and let go and let God.
Another beautiful morning of blue skies and clouds and thankfully no smoke. Yesterday was a day with backed up smoke from the forest fires south of us. Even last night as I took the dogs out at ten the air smelled and tasted of wood burning fires.
Is it let go and let God here too? Yes it is. His plan is not my plan, and His way is not my way. I have learned that many times over again. He will care for us just as He cares for the birds of the air. The forest fires still rage south east of us and the community is rallying around our volunteer fire departments. We all live in rural communities. These firefighters are working "voluntarily" 24 hours a day. It is part of God's grace to us through them as the continue to save homes and properties from total destruction.
It becomes our responsibility in life to reach out and give help to others in the world in the same as our Father gives to us. We are a creation and extension of His love and we have the ability to share this with others.
We are at the end of the season for our hummingbirds. They are all flying south. Vicki has told me every year to make sure I take down the feeders or you can cripple the birds leaving on time as they will stay around and eat instead of continuing their journey south. We have to let go and let God help them find their way. We have provided for the time of the year they need extra food from us and now we trust they will continue their journey.
Be secure in this day and know God has it all in hand.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" Matthew 6:26
