Complex Simplicity

You know, I was thinking. Why is it that we try to make everything in life so stinking hard? Why is it that whenever we face a tough time or a struggle we will go at it head strong time after time after time until we get a headache. The solution to every problem, every struggle, every test, every trial, every hurt, every pain, every short coming and every temptation is simply God! Why is it that I do not turn there first? Why is it that despite my conscience knowledge of an All Mighty, All Knowing, All Powerful, All Incompassing & All Loving Creator, I usually have to try it my way first? Why why why why why? Because I like to be in control! I don't want to HAVE to trust anybody or anything, to do that would leave me vunerable. But, in most cases, when I do take control I screw things up! Thank you God for giving me the knowledge of the truth and just because I don't always come to you first doesn't mean I don't believe in you or trust you. It simply means that I am not perfect yet! You said in your Word that you will make me perfect but it seems to be taking awhile. I guess you have had and still have a long way to go with me. But today Lord I thank you for being in control and I pray that you will teach me to love, trust and depend on you more. In the name of Jesus, amen! Be blessed today.

This is something I struggle with every day as well. A pastor once told me, God should be our pilot, not our co-pilot, we should just shut up and be the passenger. We always have to take the controls back, and we end up crashing into the mountain, lake, telephone wires, whatever. Thank you for being willing to share your wisdom with us, both here, and last evening too. The fellowship was wonderful.
