I’ve learned all kinds of lessons throughout my life. Some from other people, some from experience and investigation, some from Scripture. But I have boiled down all these to the two greatest lessons I’ve learned from life.
There is a God: I can’t help but look around at the world from the expansive universe and its elements of design to the microscopic human cell and its amazing wonders.
I’m not Him: Well, duh.
The point is that every day I’m learning that when I try to go my own way and run my life the way I want, I mess it up. If I would just do what God asks of me, I know His way works. It may not work on my timetable. But it works. If I work it His way, He’ll grant me freedom, peace, happiness. He’ll make my marriage work. He’ll make my family work. He’ll provide for me materially, spiritually, emotionally.
So, why on earth would I pick up the reins and try to run things today. Let me just surrender to Him. His way works.
Have you learned these lessons?
