I try to make MY will, MY ideas, MY way – fit what I want HIS will to be. It never works!
I have to continually ask that the Lord to give me the grace to accept
HIS will for what it IS…
He didn’t ask me what I thought. He didn’t ask me if I would rather have option A or option B. No, he didn’t give me a choice, he gave me a PROMISE.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Sarah Young writes in Jesus Calling Enjoying Peace in His Presence, February 7, page 40…
“Remember that I can fit everything into a pattern for good,
including the things you wish were different.”
Lord, today I ask you for the courage to TOTALLY let go of the things that I wish were different. Things that are out of my control. Choices that I cannot make. Please help me let go and give it ALL to you.
Lord, please be with my friend D. and her family, especially the one that has made a different choice. Guide that person and give his family the strength they need to endure.
You know, life is a series of choices. I only get to make the choices for MY life, not the lives of others. That means, I HAVE to let the choices of others be just that – their choice.
Does that make sense to you? Am I the only one that struggles with this issue?
