Before you begin your day today, ask yourself this question:
What purpose will I serve today?
Will I be serving a purpose at all?
Or will I live today just like every other day taking what I want from life and leaving what I don’t want…
Will I avoid the difficulties and only take the easy tasks at hand…
“When we became alcoholics, crushed by a self-imposed crisis we could not postpone or evade, we had to fearlessly face the proposition that either God is everything or else He is nothing. God either is, or He isn’t. What was our choice to be?
The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous
The above paragraph brings into our lives the question of faith.
The most difficult experience for anyone to go through, is to maintain faith when things are not going your way. When the need to control a situation is overwhelming and yet the principle of faith requires you to stand down and let it happen the way it should happen.
We come to find that faith did for us what we couldn’t do for ourselves…
Faith had to come first in everything good and bad…hard and easy…
Only then can God be everything!
The way I looked at it my life had become so intolerably painful I had nothing to lose but to relinquish control and to let faith take control of the day.
Living in a daily experience of complete surrender is to live life with God in control.
