You Gotta Keep on Giving it to God


Verse of the Day:
“then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:10,12)

Had another Mom's' Coffee Break today and it was a blessed gathering. 2 dear and gracious friends showed up!!!

First, I had some yummy bread and dipping oil from Panera's. Then, one DearFriend brought over yummy Shoo-Fly Pie from Lancaster, PA. So, we had delish food on the table.

Second, we had a variety of topics in our conversation, but the one phrase that comes to mind as I remember this gathering time is something one of the DearFriends said, "You just gotta keep on giving it to God."

What a great phrase...When we're in trials our tendency is to want to take control of the situation and fix it ourselves. To turn our minds and our hearts back to our Savior's perfect plan and perfect power "you just gotta keep on giving it to God." When we're doing well, we tend to forget that our fruitfulness is by the grace of God. To turn our minds and our hearts back to our Savior's loving grace "you just gotta keep on giving it to God."

It's just a phrase that is so appropriate in every life situation and so easy to remember and its main focus is God's glory, might, and sovereignty. It's not about ME it's about God and that's where our hearts and our minds should be focused on so "you just gotta keep on giving it to God."

Thanks for the great reminder. Yes, we must *continually* choose to surrender our will to Him!
