If you are anything like me I’m sure you could list several obstacles or difficulties in your life that seem to be keeping you for what you really what from your life. The reality is that it’s easy to complain about our lives rather than be thankful for what we do have. Something I really have been challenged by lately is something I heard from my favorite movie “Facing the Giants”. When faced with the reality that they may never have children the husband asks his wife a vital question…”If God never gives us children, will you still love Him?”
It really comes down to do we trust God with the outcome of our lives even though we do not like the process? That is really tough for me, I like control & knowing the path I am taking but lately my path seems unknown and I feel like I am flying blind. I am learning to say “Yes Lord, I will worship you, I will love you, I will trust you…even though my path seems unknown to me I will trust you with the direction my life is going. Even though I don’t like the process, I know that what is happening to me is to teach me something valuable. Is it easy to release control? NO but it’s getting easier as I continue to hand control over to the Author & Finisher of my faith.
So let me ask you the tough question…what trials are you facing? If He doesn’t give you what you are praying for, will you still love Him…worship Him?
“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.”
I hope you have a blessed Sunday
