The Surrender of Control

Accepting God's plan is one of the most difficult decisions. It places us in humble circumstances at times.

We feel powerless to change things and we long to control our lives again.

It is actually a good place to be although it does not feel so. Our discomfort awakens us from the routines that we had established in life. It also reminds us of God's authority.

The choice is whether we will lash out at circumstances and resent God, or draw closer to God.

In suffering our need for God is greater than ever. The more we move toward God, whether we feel Him or not, the more we can find hope and trust in a love that is unfailing.

As we persevere in this trust, God eventually lifts us up again. In the meantime, we choose to cast our anxieties upon Him. It's all a choice.
