Morning Prayer Reflection: Do we let God be God?

Lord God, you have made heaven and earth by your great might, with your outstretched arm; nothing is impossible to you. Jeremiah 32:17

It is you, O LORD, you are the only one. Nehemiah 9:6

Each Sunday, as we profess our faith in the Mass, we begin by saying, "We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty...We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ..." As we go through life, I think most of us have a inner knowledge of God as the only God, and yet, it is so easy to begin to let other things direct our paths. It is equally easy to think we have things under control, or if you are like me, that we must take care of everything. Yet, it is God for whom all things are possible, not us. It is God who is the one Lord, who has created us and whose will directs us to peace and joy - not any human, regardless of how admirable the may be.

Each day provides us a chance to begin anew with the Lord, to turn our lives over to Him again and again. The question is, do we let God be God?
