trying to put a square peg in a round hole.


It just DOES. NOT. FIT.


Yet, sometimes I continually try to force it. 

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.
Romans 8:28
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?
