Can I really let go and let God?

Aaron taught a great lesson at Celebrate Recovery last Monday. The concept he taught me was: I am to stop striving to change my faults and let Jesus do it. Or, (Something I dismissed many years ago as being too easy to be true): Let go, and let God.

I first heard it from an older female member of our Bible study group in the late 1980’s. I dismissed her as being too old to know anything (She was about my age now). Of course I was a sexist, and an elderist, and I didn’t know enough to know I didn’t know enough.

So a whole new freedom is opening up. I can stop the unwinnable war of trying to change myself in my own strength.

Jesus, lead me!

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.

  1. With age, study, and experience, I understand and believe that as we approach the Light that is Christ and His Truth, we necessarily leave behind our imperfections; and the Living Water, which is Christ, washes us of our fears, guilt, presumption, and so makes us better people.
    Blessings, James!

    1. Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
      Romans 3:24

      Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
      Titus 3:5

      And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
      Romans 12:2
