We are not meant to handle our own lives by ourselves. All kinds of things will happen to us that we can not handle - except with God's help.
Isn't that so very comforting and amazing and spectacular and a sigh of relief all at the same time?
Yes. Yes times a thousand and a few more times yes. I love it. I really feel like that's the most important lesson I've been learning lately. It's...I don't know. Life changing?
It is definitely. Every day life changing. Our lives will seriously be different if we try living otherwise.
And so it is, just like you said it would be, a completely different story. Choices are given to us, every second of every minute of every hour of every day. Choices that aren't always necessarily right or wrong, but choices nonetheless. I believe we wake up each day with the opportunity for greatness, but whether or not we live in that mindset is entirely up to us.
The above conversation is one of the few I have every week or so about God, his love, his timing, you name it. The first line is from a professor that I had in college that sends weekly e-mails about that very same thing, and more often than not little nuggets like that arise.
I believe, as I have stated before, that each day we are given can be one full of true life. Life that we can take hope in, life that gives us the strength to persevere through thick and thin. It is true, there are days that I live that seem to have no special significance in the grand scheme of things, but we cannot let days like these drag us down and in turn affecting the day after and so on.
So let's go about and change our lives...today.
