Do you try to avoid problems at all costs? ~ I do. I try to smooth them out as quick as possible, as though they were a patch of dirt on a perfectly vacuumed new carpet. ~ But my rush for a quick-fix is blocking the BLESSING that comes with every problem... ~ ...The blessing of REALIZING my need for God. ~ My biggest problem is, after all, ME! ~ Chronic spiritual-amnesia allows me to think I can do it alone, I ignore God and others, and tire myself out in the process. ~ Then, emotionally spent, I decide God wasn't there for me. The cheek of it!! ~ Actually God is there, IN the problem, wanting me to get to the end of my rope so I finally reach for Him. ~ Author Sarah Young writes, and I paraphrase, "The main problem with an easy life is that it masks your need for God. When you became a Christian, He infused His very life into you, empowering you to live on a supernatural plane by depending on Him. This awareness of your inadequacy is not something you should try to evade, it's precisely where He wants you... Allow Him to fight for you...while you rest in the shadow of His almighty peace". ~ My God-goal today: stop fighting against and resisting help from the only one who is actually sovereign over all! ~ 'Father, you are God, and I am not. Help me live this out today, with my actions and my thoughts.' ~
