Most of us, at one time or another, will strive to understand what our real meaning and purpose is. We will seek out the wisdom of psychologists, sociologists, advice columnists, and anyone who might have a clue as to what we should be doing with our lives to obtain a sense of meaning and significance. Just Let God Be God presents a wise and practical solution to our search: God. Dr. Jones suggests that we come into the habit of yielding our will to the will of God; namely, by relinquishing self-control, faulty expectations, and mortal measures of meaning for one’s life. Dr. Jones outlines practical ways to allow God to define and shape our view of our life: past, present, and future. Taking Philippians 3:13-14 as his Scripture, we are encouraged to forget those things that are behind, reach forward to those things that are ahead, and press on toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God which is in Christ Jesus. This book will challenge you to inspect your own need for control, analyze the ways you define success, assess your current state of submission to God, and finally, to just let God be God.
