Let go and Let God

Let go and let God


Favourite verse

“Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger” Psalm 8: 1-2


The streak of sunshine was shinning through the lovely blue sky. The day was beautiful, airy and bright. Every living thing were happy to come out of their cocoons, it was one of the days that neighbours, acquaintances and strangers were happy within themselves and willing to smile and have a little chit chat over anything that sprang to mind with each other. I was feeling a little blue due to some incident that transpired earlier on in the day contrary to the environmental mood. I have tried to manage my emotion before the kids and have put on a brave and happy face while falling apart within. I felt weak from within but I had to be strong in my environment and have to manage and carry myself well. The day would soon be over and I could have some time to myself to re-evaluate the day’s incident in my head.


The day was ending and I was through with most of the chores. There was a little bit of time left before the day was finally over and so I escaped into my room to breathe and re-compose myself but I was caught up in my analysis in my head that the call from Joshua baba star (another name Joshua has carved out for himself) geared me back into reality and before I could gather my thought and myself together, he had held my face and climbed himself unto my laps while asking me tons of questions at the same time – aunty what’s wrong? Aunty why are you sitting here? Aunty what are you thinking about? Etc Joshua climbed on my laps facing me and wrapped his small hands round my neck and suddenly shifted his head back to look at the ceiling while clinging to me yet he was afraid that I would let go and not catch him but he was wrong because I was holding him tight in my big hands. He kept playing the seasaw game on my laps but also kept expressing fear of falling such that he would try to control himself; this act deprived him of the joy that would have been derived from his little game on my laps.


All the while I was just looking at him, taking in all the little stunts and acts. As I was going to reprove him why he couldn’t just enjoy his little stunts without been afraid knowing very well that he was in my hands, something on the inside of me started sharing how many of us are aware that we are in Gods hands yet we are afraid. After this little experience, I have the notion to share with you that God is bigger than us and our problems on every aspects. He has wrapped us round His arms that we can never fall if we will completely let go. He said how can you trust me yet not let go? How can you hold on to me in times of trouble and trials yet try to control the situation? Why are you limiting me and trying to manipulate things to suit your needs rather than wait for my time to come in the season that I have planned for you? How can you climb on my laps and lay your head on my shoulders yet you carry your own burden instead of letting me carry it? You have my laps to climb on to, you have my shoulders to lean on, you have my hands of protection, and you have my chest to pour it all out on. You have me, believe in me completely, and trust in me completely, let go and let me do the worry if you indeed need that miracle.



This message is not for everybody but for those in trouble and trial times. It is for those looking, clinging on to God for anything yet dragging their feet and on an emotional roller coaster. One day its blue, the next day its red and black, the day after its purple; it does not matter the colour of the mood or the day because the one who created them all has got you in the palm of His big, wonderful, marvellous, creative hands and all you have to do is let go and let God hold you tight to see you through the trying times. Do not trust in your feelings but trust in your faith for only in your faith can you come out of the rut and only in your faith can you do exploit.


Have a wonderful week!

      Welcome to Hubpages. Wonderful message.

      Let go, let God: It's all about trust. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

      To really trust God is to put your faith in action and to trust that He is there when we need Him. Not only is He capable of catching us, but He can also lift us back up to a place that is higher than we started.
