What Do You Think? Wednesday
We have been called to make a difference, be the difference in others’ lives, but when they don’t want that difference there is nothing we can do. This I’m still learning, wondering if my children will reject my teachings, seeing how my mother resists my believing that change is still possible, even for the elderly. I seek to submit to God even when I want to yell out loud that I’m through, with people, procedures, processes, my process of learning, stretching, giving, yielding, groaning, yielding, growing, molding—shaped into something new, more usable, more beneficial, more sustainable, and more powerful.
I come to each day with only expectation that God will show up, even when I don’t, even when I don’t want to but need to. He will show up and do in me what He wants done in me in spite of me. There is a yielding that can be ever so beautiful if we try, let go of our hurts, our cries and just try. We can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. We are the head and not the tail if we let God lead us. He must lead us; we are incapable of leading ourselves, at least down a righteous path, one far from the destruction that we’ve come to know on our own.
Lives need to be changed and they include ours. We can do this, must do this. We can do this. Seek His face. Follow His leading. Continue on His path. He makes all provisions.
