As readers learn from Jesus’ example, they’ll discover six principles that will equip them to let God lead them to victory despite their circumstances as they deal with the problems and pain they are facing.
Q: What are some of the things we need to let go of in our lives?
Letting go or surrender is a prayer and a process. Rather than identify steps, I identify four questions in the “Letting Go Loop” that equip control-lovers to not only identify their control-loving behaviors but also identify God-honoring and life-giving next steps toward letting go and living like Jesus:
- Awareness – Am I trying to control others or outcomes right now?
- Arrest – What do I need to stop trying to protect, fix, or force to make happen?
- Acceptance – Where do I need to acknowledge the reality that I do not have control, but God can handle it?
- FaithFULL Action – How can I show love, kindness and wisdom without control-loving behaviors?
