“Gelassenheit” is a Hochdeutsch (High German) word that is well-known among Amish Mennonites. There is no one-word definition for it. It’s the peace of the soul that comes from seeking God’s will instead of your own and then living out a life of acceptance, thankfulness, composure and self-surrender. It’s not a one-time thing but rather a journey with Jesus as your friend and savior. Gelassenheit is the continual state of your soul being at peace in all situations and circumstances, even if something seems difficult. You let go of fear and anxiety as you have the best friend that anyone could ever have. A friend who loves you in spite of your mistakes, a friend who knows everything about you and knows what you really need, a friend who helps you each day and a friend who will always be with you and will never forsake you,..a friend and savior in Jesus.
