On Saturday afternoon, I was privileged to be with a dear friend as she gave her heart to Christ. I have watched her struggle with her faith over the past several months. She confessed it was all because she didn’t want to give up control.
Wow! This is a daily concern for many believers. She articulated it so simply. Why do bad things happen? How can I trust Him? Everyone I’ve ever trusted hurt me.
How precious His thoughts are towards us. He works all things for our good. Isn’t that a God we want in control!? Sure. Until our circumstances get hairy. Then we want to pull the reins out of His divine hands and take over. As if we were a better driver than the creator if the universe. We think we can steer our lives to safer, greener pastures. As if.
When she confessed, bringing salvation. She said “I’m in with both feet. I don’t want to sit on the fence anymore.” I’ve not heard a truer description of the kind of life Christ wants us to live.
What about you? Are you on the fence? Or are you all in?
