This post is a little like the last one, because a confession I must make is that I often jump the gun ahead of God’s plan for me, which results in chaos and anxiety.
Sometimes it’s a control issue. I know, I know, we can’t even control our own lives, how on earth will we attempt to save another?
Psalm 27:14 Don’t be impatient. Wait for the Lord, and he will come and save you! Be brave, stouthearted, and courageous. Yes, wait and he will help you.
It seems I am unable to learn this lesson, it’s been years of interference. Dear God, let this be one I “get”…. one I can “recognize the next time,” make me an instrument of Your peace, instead of mine.
My feeble attempts at trying to manage life so it’s easier for me, is really – a sin in itself. God has laid out the path, He has given me the tools and map. But I scurry past Him, “I know what I’m doing/saying/thinking.” My plan will get me there faster.
NOPE. Not faster.
In fact, I’ve gone three steps back now.
Peace and God’s grace to all who sin! (Who doesn’t?) 🙂
