Abandonment to Divine Providence: How to fulfill your daily duties with God-given purpose

(4 reviews) Write a Review

"Let go and let God." This popular phrase captures the essence of Father Jean-Pierre de Caussade's 18th century treatise on trust, Abandonment to Divine Providence.

Do you doubt? Do you suffer? Are you anxious about the trials of life?

Father de Caussade offers the one sure solution to any spiritual difficulty: abandon yourself entirely to God by embracing the duties of your station in life. With wisdom and gentleness he teaches how to practice complete submission to the will of God in every situation, whether we are beginners or seasoned travelers on the way of perfection. True abandonment, he explains, is a trusting, peaceful, and childlike surrender to the guidance of grace.

    Abandonment to Divine Providence

    Posted by Bruce O. on Sep 6th 2022

    Very deep but very powerful. Need to read it slowly and with much reflection. Suffers a bit from the pedantic writing style common to the 17 th century. I have only read about 19% so far.

    All Time Best Devotional!

    Posted by Beth M. on Aug 28th 2022

    This is far and away my favorite devotional. When I have read it through, I just start over again at the beginning. I never fail to find fresh insights! (I must confess though that the version I read is longer as it contains responses to letters written to him for spiritual advice).

    I love that this is from the 1800s and part of seminary reading for many years. A trusted source when not applied as New age!
