“For I know the plans that I have towards you,” says the Lord, “plans to prosper and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

Dear God,

Thank you for the future that you have planned for me. It is even better than the one that I have imagined for myself. I am grateful and overwhelmed by your love and grace towards me. I cannot write the script that you have for my life. Therefore I resign myself from the position. This change is effective immediately.

Best Regards,


Technically the definition of resignation is to give up one’s position. For some, resigning your will to God’s will is a declaration of defeat. In regards to the above scripture however it appears that one gains a future and a hope. When you resign your personal position, you gain prosperity and safety from God. It appears to be a winning formula: resignation = success. This however is easier said then done. Giving God your resignation letter is difficult and requires a full commitment. However, the rewards are endless. There is no other resignation that would offer such benefits: Health, financial freedom, and security.

I think I will draft the above resignation and turn it in ASAP.
