“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
Congratulations! We made it to the finish line. For the past eight weeks, we’ve been concentrating on moving away from fear and moving closer to the Lord. Taking one day at a time, we listened to Him speak and invited Him to help us.
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
Jesus doesn’t want you to worry and live your life in a constant state of fear. He wants you to live life and live it abundantly! That is not possible as long as we refuse to let go. Jesus has already taken our worries to the Cross, yet we’re constantly trying to take them back. At this point, you probably realize there is a better way. That “way” involves accepting him as your Lord and savior and surrendering your life to him. We must accept that he’s the boss. Anything short of total surrender to the Lordship of Christ is not acceptable and will not bring peace.
So where do we go from here? Essentially, the goal is to keep doing the same thing every day for the rest of our lives – Let go and let God. The more you do it, the easier it gets and the more peace you will experience.
Thank you for all of your prayers, donations and kind words. I am extremely grateful that you allowed me to accompany you on the journey. If you enjoyed our time together, I invite you to continue traveling with me though my daily email reflection and podcast. I would also love to speak at your parish or conference (email me at Gary@FollowingTheTruth.com for details). Yes, this is technically the end of the program but it’s also the beginning of a life without worry. Together, with Jesus leading the way, we can make it happen.
