We hear it often: let go and let God, but how often do we actually practice it? We make sure to ‘do the work,’ but we don’t ever take a step back to see how God is working for us.
As we approach the end of 2022 and welcome 2023, it’s important to invite the new year into our space early so that we can see all of the amazing things we have accomplished and the ways in which God has shown up for us in 2022.
What happens when we let go and let God
As we start looking forward, we need to focus on clarity and confidence. When we are clear on our vision and goals, and when we have confidence in ourselves and in God’s plan, we can make a strong commitment to making our goals a reality. Focus on the big picture, leave out the unnecessary details and you will achieve clarity.
We need to have a clear vision of what we want to accomplish, but we don’t need to have every single step planned out in advance. Instead, we need to surrender to God’s plan and trust that He will guide us on the right path. When we let go and allow God to do the work, we free ourselves up to focus on the actions that will lead us toward our dreams.
Letting God do the work
In order to make progress toward our goals, we have to take action. But instead of allowing ourselves to get caught up in the overwhelm of trying to do everything at once, we can focus on taking small, consistent steps that will move us closer to our desired outcome.
When we believe that God has already done the work, we show up differently. We can approach our goals with a sense of confidence and trust, knowing that everything is working out in our favor.
It’s also important to speak our dreams out loud. When we share our goals and aspirations with others, we create accountability for ourselves. We are more likely to follow through and take action when we know that others are watching and expecting us to do so.
Conclusion: We show up differently when we let go and let God
We need to make sure that we are leveraging our gifts and strengths. Each and every one of us has unique talents and abilities that we can use to make a positive impact in the world. It’s important to know what those gifts are, trust in them, believe in them, and to show up for them. As we do this, we will find that God shows up for us in amazing ways. Don’t be afraid to step into your gifts and let your light shine. So let go and let God. When you get out of your own way and allow God to work through you, you will be amazed by what you can accomplish.
