Not my will, but Yours be done
This is so much easier to say than to live out. It's so common for us to plan out our futures, to assume that our wants and desires are the same as God's. This is simply not true. There are points in our lives when we think we have it all figured out, we get comfortable and start assuming we know what is better for our lives than our Father does. It is usually times like these that God takes us down a few pegs and reminds us that He is in charge, that His plan is better, and that plan always amazes us.
I can only imagine where I would be right now had God not stepped in and brought me back on course time and time again. I have been finding myself in that position more often than not lately. Maybe its just a refining process, maybe I'm nowhere near where I thought I was in my relationship with Him. Whatever the case may be, I am growing weary of making plans and decisions that don't line up with what God has in store for me.
God, I want to be clay in the potters hands. Mold me, shape me, make me into whatever it is that YOU want. I am only here for the blink of an eye, and I want this time to be the most Christ exalting life I can live. I surrender my will and my pride and I confess that YOU are God, and that Your plan is nothing less than perfect. I will trust you and be not afraid.
Also, wanted to add the link to an artist named Daniel Bashta. He is incredible.
