Step Back!!

27 Mar


This morning God told me to “step back.”  Wow!! 🙂  Don’t worry, it is a good thing!lol…

So often we try to make things happen ourselves, but at the end of the day, God is the only one who can truly make things work out, or give us what we “think” is success, (which often may look different than we originally thought anyway.)  🙂

So today, I am stepping out of the way to give God room to do what He wants.


This is not always easy!  I like to be in charge.  I like to “run the show!” lol   …and this is not to say that I can’t put forth the effort, but instead that I have to stop trying so hard, relax, and trust God that my efforts will work out and be blessed.

Just the other day, I was helping to coordinate my friend’s wedding reception.

I was running around and telling people where to line up, checking names off the guest list, and going over last minute details with the other coordinator.

After it was all over, I whispered to my hubby with a smile, “I like being in charge,”  to which he replied with a grin, “I know…the only problem is when you take that attitude home.”  🙂

He meant it in a funny way, (and maybe there was a little truth to it…lol,)  but it is a good reminder – we can’t always be in charge.  God needs to be a part of every decision too.
