Culture tells us that only those who remain relentlessly driven and laser-focused achieve their dreams. We believe that we can get what we want by gripping tight to our goals and never letting go. But God beckons us into another way of being, a way that requires surrender, and a willingness to relinquish even our deepest wants and desires for the sake of what God desires for us. This is counter-intuitive, confounding even, but it is the only path toward truly discerning
and doing God’s will.
This Sunday we continue our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life, by looking at how we learn to embrace the freedom that comes with letting go.
