“Sometimes we pray for God to change our circumstances when God wants to use our circumstances to change us.”
I’m not sure how I feel about that. Simply relaxing and allowing change is so hard for me. I am a doer. A controller. I take charge. I get things done. I know how to handle the situation.
But do I really? I have no omniscient sight that lets me see the future. I’m not pre-cognitive. But I do have God’s Spirit as a living breathing entity within me. We all do. God lives in us and gives us knowledge and growth so we can be more like him.
I know it sounds convoluted- let God be more God in us. But when I relax and choose not to worry and take control- when I relax and allow the Universe to create change in my heart, I become more the person I am meant to be- and those pesky circumstances will eventually take care of themselves.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says God, thoughts of peace, not of evil, to give you hope and a future.
Accept that I am loved and allow that Love to direct my day.
